Kris says she didn't worry—she felt peaceful and confident during her pregnancy—and the nausea and discomfort didn't bother her much. "The only thing I wanted was to see that baby in [Sara's] arms," she says. On February 9, 2011, Kris got her wish.

After 30 hours of labor, Kris' doctors decided to perform a C-section. Sara was in the delivery room with her mother when her son, Finn, was born. "I sat right next to my mom. We were holding hands," Sara says. "Then, all of a sudden, they said, 'Here he is.' I'm just waiting, and then I hear the [crying]. I just started to sob. My mom is crying, and it's the most profound moment of my life."

Unfortunately, Bill was in the waiting room when Finn was born. "I got kicked out of the [operating room], so it was like 1965," Bill says. "I was pacing back and forth waiting for the nurse to come out."
