A visit to Keren and Ido and Gomeh

My mom gave birth to me in the hospital. I am not sure where my father was, in the hospital outside the delivery room, or maybe not in the hospital at all. So when Gomeh was about to be born, I knew I wanted to be there, part of the experience, connected to my new family. The day Gomeh was born is still so vivid in my memory. The magic of it, the sacred feeling of a new life emerging. I am so happy to have been an active participant in the birth, supporting my wife Keren, and catching Gomeh as he came into this world. I felt we were all connected and am so grateful for our life together. --Ido Siemion, father of Gomeh, born at home
