The Birth of Bridgette Avari

I spent my Saturday with the Kranz family welcoming baby Bridgette earth side. Libby has such incredible strength. In mind, body, and in spirit. I’ve seen her trust in her body grow with each of her births. Bridgette’s birth was overwhelmingly emotional, and beautiful to witness.

One can only imagine the conflict of emotions, welcoming new life, while still (and always) grieving for a child lost too soon. Jennifer was all around us. From her picture, all the way down to the Love4JLK chapstick. We didn’t know until later in the day, but the amazing nurse had even been in attendance at Jennifer’s memorial. There was not a moment in that delivery room that Jennifer was not in our hearts and minds.

Avari means “From Heaven”. We know that Jennifer is loving her baby sister from there.

I am so grateful I was able to be there to support my friends and capture these moments for them.bridget-announcementbridget-3bridget-2bridget-6bridget-7bridget-5bridget-4bridget-8
