We went home to collect some stuff, and then went back to the hospital a few hours later. Labor was induced that night and Sierra was born at 11:16 AM on July 3rd.
She was tiny, just 12.1 ounces and 10 inches long. Her feet were about an inch and a quarter long. She had probably been gone four or five days, the nurse told us gently, and her fragile little body had some indications of this. But her feet were just lovely - perfect miniature replicates of Tim's, with the second toe longer than the first. I'm starting to be able to look at her pictures now, and especially these footprints, with affection as well as sorrow and remorse. This is my daughter and I love her. But oh, how I wish she were alive in my arms right now.
