Thankful

I am amazed and delighted at what a close, tight knit group the families with multiples are.  Already, I have met so many nice people online and at my TBAMoMs group that are willing to share their stories and advice.  In addition to that, we have had an out pour of people willing to donate their used baby clothes and toys.  Being first time parents, we feel pretty clueless as to what things we need and how to handle 4 at once, so all this help is very useful!

Our families are all going out of their way to help us and be supportive of the major changes that we are experiencing in our lives.  We are so grateful for my brother and his wife, John and Traci's, generous offer to come to Florida for the first month the babies are home from the hospital.  They are experienced parents of 5, so I know we will learn a lot in time that they are here.

Josh and I are so appreciative of all the support and prayers that we are getting.  We couldn't get through this without all of you!

  1. Love you two and the beans. I'm bringing suitcases with hand me downs and other assorted baby paraphanalia. The airline might be sorry they still offer free checked bags :)

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
