Special Delivery

Look at what I got in the mail today?!?  IMG_9901

My sweet friend, Sandra, sent this to me totally out of the blue!  I was so surprised when I opened the box.  I just can’t get over her thoughtfulness.  If you don’t already know Sandra, she is a very busy mom of 5 (4 of which are 2 year old quadruplets)!!  “Busy” is probably an understatement.  I just can’t get over the fact that despite all she’s got going on in her life, she did this for me!  Wow.

Sandra, thank you so much for helping the memory of my Green Beans live on.  That’s all I could ever ask for.  Getting this just made my day! :)

I’ve been given a few pieces of jewelry now that are in honor of the Green Beans, and it’s so great to always have the option to wear something that reminds me of them at all times.

On a completely different note, I made a new blog signature.  The 4 stars at the end symbolize Rylan (blue), Heidi (purple), Paige (yellow), and Lily (pink).  You like it? :)

    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.
