to my dear husband who relentlessly holds the fort down while I’m out at births. He somehow makes taking care of two babies, three goats, eight chickens and one house look easy and to top that off I receive texts saying things like “The kids are fed and both asleep for naps. The goats are milked though I think they miss you. We love you and hope all is well. Do good work.” To be the spouse of someone who is almost always on call is not easy. To do it with grace is a whole other level of supportive. Thank you philiosofarmer for being you.
