Sam has a gift with babies, but during her time with us it felt like every member of our family benefitted from her presence.  I was comfortable leaving my days old baby with her.  She fit right into our household and I was at ease both leaving the house with her there, but also having her there with me as well.  It was never awkward and it was always extremely helpful.  Whether she was caring for the newborn, feeding him my pumped milk, helping with laundry, unloading the dishwasher or making meals for my older two boys, her time with us was invaluable.  If we were ever to have another baby, I would text her immediately upon finding out I was pregnant to reserve her time again.
