August 27, 1983

I just wanted to say that yesterday was Faith's 24th birthday. I was expecting to film her birth when the midwife was quite late and I found my self catching Faith. She was the first baby I caught and she made a dramatic appearance as a frank breech. Her Apgars were 10-10. She seemed mad --maybe because I was imploring her Mama, my friend, to pant when she wanted to push. We were waiting for the midwife (only to find out that she was already there). Its a fun story, but that's enough for tonight. The lights are wavering, the thunder is approaching and the town to the west has blared its tornado warning siren.

Faith, if you are out there reading this. I love you for letting me catch you. Its made all the difference in my life!
