In reflection, after having given birth, I have a new respect for "birth days." It really is a celebration for the parents as well! Last night on my favorite show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" the whole family revisited the hospital room etc, where Jon and Kate's sextuplets were delivered 10 weeks early on Labor Day!!!! I was struck by how important and sentimental the whole trip was for Kate (the mom). The point of the trip was to show the sextuplets where they were born and visit with the doctors and hospital staff. I felt myself relating with Kate as she was walking the halls of the hospital and hugging the nurses and doctors. The sextuplets are still only 4 and could only appreciate the experience on their own level but Kate was very emotional. I could see how important it was for Kate to make this journey for her own personal triumph and celebration!
