Two words: BIRTHDAY PARTIES.
There was much celebrating, much visiting, and much eating of deliciousness! I call THAT a successful party! The babies received many presents, so thank you to everyone who came, to everyone who gave them a present (though you certainly didn't have to!), and thank you all for being such a huge part of our lives!
"If you were to tell me a year ago that I would be standing in front of a group of people, some family, many more friends, and almost all of them familiar faces, with two big, growing, happy babies playing happily amongst the crowd, I would probably have cried tears of anger, tears of fear, and tears for the vast unknown that we were facing; however, we are standing here, crying tears of gratitude and tears of happiness at what lies ahead. This is possibly only because of the support, encouragement, knowledge and skills, and experience of many individuals who came together as a team for our boys.
I am not sure why my family was chosen to undergo this experience, or why my babies have shown such strength and resilience, but I look around at all of the familiar faces - all these faces evoke an overwhelming humility in me. I look at your faces and I see God's plan; this has bee His plan all along, and you and I are the lucky ones; we are seeing firsthand the strength, power and compassion of our God. So perhaps we were chosen for this task so that I could see firsthand that miracles still happen. God continues to use His people that we may see His glory.
I have often heard that it takes a village to raise a child, but in our case, it has taken a city - Thank you, Medical City, for what you have done for my family."
May God bless you all.
3 good things:
1. Good people
2. 4 sweet boys
3. Life. God is good.
(So did I make up for my uber fail by providing tons of pictures of the babies?! lol )
