On October 18, 2010...there were 3,700 babies aborted.....
Birthmothers fight hard for the lives of their babies. They fight against the tide of our culture, the advice of many "professionals" and their own fears. At great loss to their own hearts, they not only choose life, beautiful life, but a future within a family for their little ones.
The love and sacrifice of our birthmother humbles me. It challenges me. And it makes me want to fight for the lives of the 3,700 babies lost each day, and the precious hearts and souls of the ladies who carry those babies.
Today, we hold in our arms 2 precious children......proof of the handiwork of God, and a living picture of the war we are fighting.
They are fearfully and wonderfully made!

(Eliana is the most happy baby....until I whip out the camera. Sweet baby girl does NOT like having her picture taken!
They are going to grow up soooo fast. Yes, twins are work.....blessed, glorious work!
Count each minute a privilege!
"My soul magnifies the Lord, And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has
done great things for me, and Holy is His name."

It was love at first sight!
Our first picture with Eliana Mesheal and Jordan Kenny.......dressed in beautiful outfits picked out and purchased by their birthmother. I think I am going to frame those little outfits in a shadow box and hang them in their room! My heart was so full it could just burst!
We then went downstairs to present our babies to Evangeline, Landis and Samuel and all of our relatives. Here we are with our precious foster family. Notice something? Yup, they have twins as well!
We are so thankful to now be a family of 7!
I have so much more I want to share....but both babies are waking up and hungry!Never a dull moment:)

I cannot wait to get my hands on these peanuts and kiss all over those precious checks!
Tomorrow, at 1:00....we will get to do just that!
Thank you, thank you for all of your kind words and encouragement.....they are all treasured!
Off to "ready" the house. I read just yesterday morning that having twins was like being in a submarine. Guess we are about to find out:)
Does God not move in a mysterious, wonderful way?!?!?!?

Needless to say......we are popping with excitement!
