This Story has a Happy Ending, and Here it is.

The twins are days from 4 months old and every day they become more beautiful, more individual, and more WORK! They are the loves of my life and I treasure every minute, every smile, every milestone, as little as the milestones may be. I've never been happier to wake in the middle of the night or clean poop. I am now a mother and nothing feels more important.

This blog is a log of the past 6 years, and the struggle and sacrifice I made to bring them into this word. I call them my "two in a billion" babies, because their story is so completely unique. I suppose everyone's babies are one in a million, but I feel especially strong that these babies took going to the ends of the earth for. And it was so worth it. But we're going to close this chapter, simply because this story was about having a family, and now we have one. Maybe we'll start a new blog, a happier, more upbeat blog of first tastes and steps and words. Maybe we'll get a video of them talkng to each other and it will go viral. Who knows, but this blog will now be turned into a book and kept on a shelf for much much later...when the twins are about to start their own families. And it might only be then that they fully understand just how special they are. Until then I expect what I fear most, to one day hear, "you're not my real mother!" Oh it's par for the course, don't worry, we'll weather that storm! Until then we'll enjoy all the joys and tears, frustration and tantrums, messes and spills, and everything else raising twins will bring.

If and when I start a new blog, you'll be the first to know. Until then, thanks for being such great support during the hardest, yet best years of my life. I wouldn't trade the outcome for the world.

I'm so happy that your story has a happy ending! If you do decide to create a family blog, please let me know, I would love to see how the 5 of you are doing! (And who knows, maybe I could offer twin advice???) :D

Happy endings are usually only in the movies, but this time, with the wonderful outcome, you have conquered all your dragons and come out smiling. We are all smiling with you and enjoying the results of all those years of wanting and wishing. Dreams really do come true, if you never give up.
