"Hold on, Sam," her husband whispered.

"I can't! Please!"

"Just a bit longer. You are almost there."

"It's all you have been saying for the past twenty hours," Sam snapped.

"I know, Sam. I wish I could do something more to help you," Jack replied, gently massaging her lower back and her swollen belly.

"Okay, Sam. At the next contraction you can push," her doctor finally said.

After that it was all an unbearable pain blur until she heard her daughter's first cry.

When she saw her beautiful baby, Sam was overwhelmed with joy and love.

She was worth everything.
