ONE YEAR AGO...

Exactly one year ago on this very day, January 19th, the twins started their life, outside of my body! One year ago today, I had my egg retrieval surgery at the Mayo Clinic, where 14 follicles were taken from my ovaries. 12 of the 14 follicles were "good" enough to make the cut and Nick's sperm was injected into those 12.

It's amazing that one year ago today our babies started hatching into embryos in their little petri dishes! It was a day filled with fear of the unknown future, but also a day filled with hope of the unknown future.

Knowing what I know now, looking back, I would tell myself this advice: "God has a plan for your family. Don't worry about the future, because God is already there. And you better watch out, it's gonna be a doozy! Be careful what you wish for! Because sometimes when you pray for a miracle, God gives you TWO!" :) :) :) :)

It's truly amazing how much one year can change things...
