Twenty years ago today, I had a regular OB appointment.
Twenty years ago today, I was excited to get my favorite chocolate milkshake from Burger King after my appointment. It was my treat for getting out and off of bedrest for the day.
Twenty years ago today, we were told that Baby A had died.
Twenty years ago today, the perinatologist said he would deliver the babies on September 2nd since Baby A was already gone.
Twenty years ago today, my OB spoke up and said "No, what are you doing for lunch? These babies are being born now."
Twenty years ago today, I was rushed in for an emergency c-section at 33 1/2 weeks.
Twenty years ago today, I did not get my chocolate milkshake but we got the three greatest blessings we could EVER hope to have in our lives—our beautiful, amazing daughters! And Baby A was still with us!
At 4 Weeks Old (first group photo)
Saturday (at almost 20)
They have very "sun sensitive" eyes so our photo shoot did not work. Baby C (on the right) was consoling Baby A (middle).
Father, I thank you for intervening that day. Had the babies not been born that day, Baby A would not be here today. She would never had made it to September 2nd. You knew that. We didn't know You, Father, at the time but you created us. You created these beautiful girls, and you have huge plans for them. I am so thankful that you drew me unto Yourself so that I might not only know You but that the girls have learned about You and come to know You for themselves as their personal Lord and Savior. There is no greater gift in my life than the sacrifice of Your son for my sins and the beautiful gift of these three amazing, amazing women. Thank you, Father, for your immeasureable gifts to us! Amen!
How we love these girls tremendously! Happy 20th Birthday precious girls!!! We miss you and love you dearly!!!!
