Knowing that your beloved sister is having an unassisted home birth in Costa Rica really tests your ability to let go and let be.
Little did I know, I didn’t have anything to worry about.
Angels surrounded her. Each one arriving right on time.
The kindest couple welcomed her into their home.
They made her tea. They fed her Costa Rican mangoes. They never left her side.
Mama-to-be danced to the beat of African drums and the sounds of a sitar.
The music perfectly matching the rhythm of the contractions.
Three darling children offered their “om’s” and drummed along.
Friends across the globe lit a candle. Said a prayer. Breathed for her.
Family tuned in live, through the internet. Costa Rica to Canada to China.

A knock on the door.

Las estrellas alineadas.
After 3 hours of pushing, Sister was getting weak.
So the universe sent another.
This time via Skype. A midwife in California.
La gracia divina.
With all her angels present, Mama gave it all she got.
Baby boy arrived. Healthy and peaceful.
The sweetest angel of all.
Welcome to the world Mi Amor!
