I got to catch the baby

So yeah as the baby is about to be birthed into the world the Midwife turns to me and asks "Do you want to catch the baby?". Well my heart started to race as fear filled my heart and nerves got the best of me, it took a split second for me to realize that this is my daughter and I might never get to experience this again. So my answer was "yes", even though the fear and nerves didn't leave me. Only a few minutes later I got to be the one who "caught" Aubrey, it was a blast and I'm glad I got to do it.
