I'm a sucker for a good labor & delivery story, and Valarie will have a funny one to tell her daughter one day. Mom was still 4 weeks away from her due date when her water broke early…with her husband 2,000 miles away for work, and it was almost 9 o'clock at night.
So yeah, there aren't a lot of flights going in and out of airports after 9pm. However, Dad, rushed through the airport like a mad man, was able to secure a flight AND made in home in time to see the birth of his daughter. It's like a scene straight out of a movie. Seriously could you imagine how long that flight must have felt for him, he did NOT have in-flight wi-fi by the way so he wasn't able to get updates while he was in the air.
And Mom deserves some sort of trophy or medal for keeping her wits about her :) Congratulations you guys, she is beautiful.
OMG! I love this picture :) Perfect note to end on.
