Hi my name is Rachel, I am with the most amazing man in the world Manuel. We have a beautiful son who was due on June 26th 2012 but he decided he didnt want to wait and was born May 23rd 2012 at 8:14pm 6lb1oz. He was 5 weeks early but he was a great weight and healthy. We love our son more than life its self. I am a very lucky to have such a wonderful little family.
