Happy 3rd Anniversary

Today Thomas and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. This anniversary was particularly special to us since this was the first time celebrating along with Haley and Rachel. Thinking back to the day we got married, it was filled with happiness, joy and love. Our marriage is eternal and everlasting. We desired to have a family and we have been blessed with eight beautiful children. Families are forever and we will always be a family. Haley and Rachel are our miracles and have brought our family much hope, faith, love and happiness. Today the girls had a good day. Tomorrow (Wednesday) we will be meeting with the gastroenterologist, pulmonologist and neonatologist in regard to Rachel. We hope this meeting will help us make the right decision for Rachel. Haley is doing well. Her neonatologist informed us that she will be able to go home next week. We don't have the exact date yet, but its getting closer! Our life at home is about to change - change for the good. What a momentous time for us. After 5 long months, we will finally be able to bring one of our girls home. What a blessing and a miracle.

  10. Happy Anniversary! With our baby we showed up at the hospital like normal, and they told us we could take her home with us that day. I almost didn't want to, it just seemed like she lived in the hospital and we lived at home, and that's just how it was. It was a little scary bringing her home, but wonderful too. :) You're on the homestretch!

  15. Happy Anniversary! 8 children in three years MIGHT be a record of some sort! What joy there is in knowing that yours is an eternal family and those children will all be with you for the eternities. What joy, indeed.

    I am so excited Haley is coming home soon, I am sure you are positively thrilled! It is going to be wonderful, but so much work. You have all the prayers of so many with you. What a journey it has been so far and will continue to be.
