30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 6

Today I am thankful for Connor and Merasia. We waited so long to have children, and thought it would never happen. We had 1 unexpected pregnancy very early on in our relationship, that not many of our friends or family knew about. It ended in miscarriage, and was just awful. But, it was not a good time for us to have a child, so it was a blessing in disguise.We had 2 more planned pregnancies after that, and both ended in miscarriage. There was a time in our life together that we felt utterly hopeless about ever having children of our own. 

30 weeks pregnant with the twins:

When we found out we were pregnant again, we were very cautious, but I had a good feeling that this time, it would be different. And it was. 

We had a successful pregnancy, full of all the milestones we never thought we would get to experience. 

We felt more blessed than we could have ever imagined with the birth of our twins. 

We look at it as God's way of making up for angels that we lost, by giving us two at once. From the moment we knew we were having twins (4 weeks pregnant!!), our lives were brighter. 

And from the moment we first locked eyes with Connor and Merasia, we knew what a true miracle was. 

They are our miracles, our shooting stars, our rainbows, our true love, our EVERYTHING. And we can never thank God enough for choosing us to be their parents.
