Motherhood has been my greatest blessing, and I am the proud mother of 5-year old twins. I still remember, like it was yesterday, the joy I felt in finding out that I was pregnant (and with twins!). Flash forward to the fear I felt watching Dale fight for life in the NICU. The hope, joy and the pain of motherhood defined in two moments. I’ve never felt such surges of emotion in my entire life. I’ve learned a lot about strength, resilience, and God’s grace in just a few years. Ever since September 16, 2009 – I’ve been watching my heart (split in two) outside of my body daily. These pieces of me are learning, growing, and becoming independent. As a mommy, my biggest fear is that they will get hurt, and my biggest hope is that they will be rebound. That they will be kind. That they won’t lose their wonder or their inner light. If you become a part of my blog family, you will learn a lot about my twins – Dale and Delaney. Like today, Delaney changed her name. It’s now Norman. Yes, I said Norman. Ahhhh…the interesting world of Dale and Delaney. I hope you will join me for the ride. It’s been AMAZING thus far! Got a funny snippet to share about your child?
