Jake & Ben, HOME AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is such a wonderful day. A day we have dreamed about for so long!!!! Our family is together, under one roof!!! We couldn't be happier! The best part is that my family is celebrating Thanksgiving today because my parents are leaving for Florida this week. It was so wonderful having the entire family together for this joyous occasion. We have sooooo much to be thankful for.

Wow, I get tears in my eyes when I think about all of the support we have recieved on this blog. Whether we knew you or you were a perfect stranger...your comments, prayers, and support have given us the strength to keep fighting. We created this to keep family & friends updated because it was so hard to rehash the event each time we talked to someone..but we had no idea how much WE would get from doing the blog. We hope to post again...might not be as interesting...unless you find dirty diapers and sleepless nights interesting! :)

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are now moving on to part three of this journey...Life with twin boys!!!

Fondly,
Danielle and Kevin

Enjoy the pictures

How wonderful!!! I feel tingley all over just knowing how far you've come and that you are finally where you only dreamed about being a few months ago... Enjoy every cry, every diaper and every sleepless moment... They go by so quickly and soon they'll be just a fond memory. I'm so happy for you and wish you the happiest holiday season you've ever known!

Welcome home Ben!!!!!

Congratulations.

This must be one of the most joyous days in your lives. Ben and Jake, back together again.

Now I just hope and pray for the next 5 or 6 months to be healthy ones.
I can relate to sleepless nights and dirty diapers, I havn't slept through the night in over three years. It's all worth it.

We are so happy for your whole family. Keep us updated on your spare time.

Take care,

Congratulations! Where there was two now there is four. Enjoy every smile, pout or yes even the wails for these are the stories to tell when they are older. A very wise woman, my mom, once told me "When they are little they have little problems but when they grow they have bigger problems, enjoy the small problems" and this one that I have found to be true "Don't always worry about the house and how it looks there are times when you must let it go and sit on the floor to play with them for that is what they will remember, that you made time for them, you will always have a house to clean but they only stay for a short while in your house after that your house will always be clean." So take the time to enjoy them when they are little and big.
Love you,
Aunt Margaret
