It’s been a long time since I have done a featured photo here, but this one came through and I had to share it. Uplifting and beautiful – thank you, Christina!
I’ve loved this photo for some time now so I asked Sarah if I could share it on the site. I just love love love how the little hands are grasping at mama’s belly. Precious beyond words. Thanks, Sarah!

Sadalit, the subject and creator of this photo sent me a link to it and also to this one.
Not only is the photograph beautifully composed, but it strikes me as nothing short of amazing how miraculous the human body is. The skin has smoothly sealed the place where her child first entered this world, leaving a road path to show where, but quite subtle in the grand event of birth. Just a little line.
Of course to a woman who has a cesarean scar, it surely feels like a lot more than a little line.
Thank you, Sadalit.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a photo, mainly because I’ve come across so few which allow me to blog them. But I’d like to get back to that when possible and this one struck me as the prefect opportunity. I love that she pointed out that her belly button looks like an up arrow since having her daughter. I would never have noticed such a thing, but it seems symbolic somehow.
To each and every one of you – to those who hold your babies, and those who long to. To those whose babies are long since grown and those whose have not yet arrived. To those with stretchmarked bodies and those with nary a sign of past pregnancies. Each of you is perfectly you; perfectly mother.
Bless you all – you make this site what it is.
