THE 2ND ANNIVERSARY OF OUR "Ordinary Miracles"

Today Nick and I are celebrating the second anniversary of our little "ordinary miracles" on an extraordinary day!

January 21, 2010 forever holds a very special place in our hearts...

Exactly two years ago today, we watched the monitor in surgery at Mayo Clinic, at the exact moment our two embryos were being injected into my uterus.

It's hard to describe just what we were feeling at that moment. One may think we thought about how it'd be a lot more fun to be making a baby by having sex for free, rather than paying thousands of dollars surrounded by a bunch of Mayo Clinic Reproductive Endocrinology doctors! How romantic, right? But I can honestly say I didn't think that at that moment. (Although I had thought it often before!) At that time, we were focused on the hope of our miracles.

Little did we know at that moment that both of those two precious embryos would attach and grow into our beautiful, precious, twin boys that are running around like little maniacs today!

Some people may think it's weird to celebrate the day your child was conceived, and maybe it is, but I don't care what they think. :) It's another reminder of our precious miracles and that deserves all the celebrating there is...

I am constantly amazed of the medical technology of IVF and am truly grateful for it. Because without it, I probably wouldn't have my children. I just can't truly wrap my brain around that advanced technology. How could it be that our two little babies were made outside of my body and put back inside of me? Our little test tube babies. Incredible! And we watched it happen. That is something special. Something so extraordinary. Something that is nothing short of a miracle.

My heart smiles every time I think of it. It just blows my mind. I know it's okay that I don't really understand all the medical terms and advancements. Because I know it's a miracle...God's handiwork. And that's all I really need to know...

For those of you out there who read my blog for hope and encouragement, it is my heartfelt prayer and hope that you trust that your "ordinary miracle" will happen for you. Because it will. God has a plan. A plan that is better than the plan you have for yourself.

And for those of you who already have your "ordinary miracle(s)", never ever ever take them for granted.

I am grateful. I am blessed. And I believe in miracles, in every walk and season of my life.


That's right, Elijah and Will, you were wanted. Like WAY WAY wanted.

And you always will be.
