Slight Explanation

i have always wanted twins.  twins are extremely common on my dad's side.  he actually has two sets of twin siblings (same parents).  i also have multiple sets of cousins who are twins on that side.  so, you see, i've always expected them sometime or another in the family. but having them this way, didn't ever cross my mind.

We are VERY excited.

because it's kind of a big deal.

you see, very, very, early on, i felt that we were having twins.  even after 3 ultrasounds, i still didn't believe the dr when he said there was only 1.  finally, it started settling in that the dr wasn't an idiot and there really was 1.

then i got a phone call from a friend, i hadn't talked to her in a couple years. 

she was pregnant and wanted to know if we would adopt her baby. 

complete shock. 

imagine my mind going a million miles a minute, thinking "this is the phone call we've been waiting for for 5 years and it happens while we are pregnant. . . " 

obviously, i couldn't give her an answer then and there...i still needed to talk to my other half.

then began the search for the right answer. 

i kind of knew from the beginning that this was meant to be. i had promptings constantly about "TWINS."  i talked to the birth mother a couple times and when I found out the original due date was 6 days after mine (which, let's face it, it sealed the deal for me then.) this really was the twin i'd been wondering about.

this little girl was meant to be with our family.  i realize much can happen between then and now, so please keep the birthmom and us in your thoughts and prayers!


  1. Wow! This is SO exciting! Congrats and I wish you guys all the best!

  2. This is the best news ever. We will continue to pray for you guys, and we volunteer to be the girls' first babysitters :) I can't wait to meet them both!
