{17 Years} How Can it Be?

Yes, it's another birthday post! Didn't I just post one of these a few months ago? How can my girls be 17 already? Some years this day bothers me as I remember why they were born. It was a very emotional day--an emergency c-section because they thought Baby A had died. Yes, here is my first look at Baby A whom we were told was gone:


The perinatologist did not want to deliver until the next day because he said "Baby A is already gone. We'll deliver tomorrow." Well, God had different plans, and they were delivered immediately not the next day! I didn't even know Him then yet He still had His amazing hand of protection over me and my beautiful Babies A, B, and C! And here are Babies A and B as they went home one month later:

And poor precious Baby C still had to stay in the NICU. The nurses said she changed overnight. She knew her sisters were gone! Poor little precious!

My girls are blessed in that they will always share that special "identical triplet" bond. I pray that they will not only walk hand-in-hand with each other but that they will always walk with our precious Lord and Savior.

Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Thank you for rejoicing with us today as we celebrate our precious girls. Happy Birthday sweet girls. We are blessed that God has given us the opportunity to watch over you as your earthly parents. We pray that 17 will be an amazing year for each of you and for our family. We love you darling girls!

**Please note: I am taking off today to celebrate with my girls. All "regularly scheduled posts" will resume next week. Thank you!
