When we first opened the email, it was a strange feeling. There were the two babies that we had been praying for, for 1 year. The anticipation was so amazing, unlike anything I had ever experienced. There were so many emotions warring within us, that we were almost in shock. Our response was different than I had imagined. We didn't say anything for several minutes. We just stared. It was as if something that has seemed so abstract for a year, had all of a sudden become tangible.
Almost a day later, when the reality was finally setting in, we couldn't believe how beautiful they are. It is so strange how we can be so in love with these two children that we have never laid eyes on and have never held.
God, thank you for choosing these two children from the beginning of time to be a part of our family. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of Your amazing plan. We love you Lord.
