The Feeling Of A Husband As He Goes Through labor his wife melt your heart
The Mɪʀᴀᴄʟᴇ of birth is so intense and powerful that some dads have ꜰᴀɪɴᴛᴇᴅ after just one glimpse. But not William Trice Battle. He’s been there, with his wife, all the way. And not once did he think it was too much for him. “I couldn’t experience that with Kannon (my stepchild), so I knew I wanted to experience it this time,” said William. I wanted to be the rock for her during one of the scariest moments of her life. Little did I know it would be one of my scariest moments. ”
Despite being immersed in this magical moment, the man still has no idea how his wife did it.
So, to thank the love of his life, William wrote a most sincere open letter. He did a great job putting his thoughts and feelings into words, the touching post immediately went viral.
The couple has been married for over a year now. They have two children, but this is their first biological child together; They are raising a 5-year-old Bᴏʏ who is William’s stepchild. “He was possibly the most amazing thing that ever happened to me other than her.”
During the course of his pregnancy, William once again realized that his wife was the truest embodiment of sacrificial love he had ever known. “She has magnetism. The man said. “She commands attention, not by force, but simply by being genuinely interested in whoever she is talking to. She will tell you a story in such a way that you are hooked from start to finish. She is funny, sarcastic, intelligent, open and strong. She is also the most efficient, independent and self-directed person I have ever met. All that aside, what I love most about her personality, is that she has a heart of gold. She really cares about people and their happiness. ”
The inspiration to write the post came to William late that night at the hospital. “The chaos has subsided, and my wife Lauren is raising our beautiful son, ROᴍᴀɴ Creed. She barely slept a wink for almost 2 days and I knew she was exhausted and in pain. But you can’t tell. It was as if holding our son had taken away all the pain, all the ғᴇᴀʀ, all the anxiety. Nothing else at the time mattered to her and I knew just by looking at her that she would go through it all again for him. I have never seen such love, strength, from anyone before. ”
Meanwhile, the hospital staff, their families and friends are all focused on their baby. “All the attention is on him (understandably, he is beautiful and needs medical supervision). But my attention was on her. To me, she has never been more beautiful. My love and respect for her and what she went through for him is so great that the words in that post just spilled out of my heart. The post simply came out of a desire to pay tribute to the most incredible wOᴍᴀɴ I know, and I am so grateful that my words have touched so many lives because of it. ”
“If there is one thing that I would like people to take away from the post, it would be for all the husbands and future husbands out there. Dive into your partner’s world. Try everything you can to appreciate the sacrifices they make for your children. Compassion and empathy are necessary if you truly love your partner. So be present, engaged, and grateful. Along the way, you may discover that this is the ᴍɪssɪɴɢ ingredient you need to truly have a happy marriage that lasts a lifetime.”
