How is it possible it has been 5 years?!?!

Melody and Madison were born exactly 5 years and 30 minutes ago.

It was at this point 5 years ago we were in the O. R. and our daughters were still alive.

It was at this point I held my daughters in my arms, listened to them breathe and watched their heart beating.

It was at this point I watched a nurse lovingly place our daughters in my husbands arms, as he looked at them with tears streaming down his face I knew our lives would never be the same.

It was at this point they were placed in my arms and Destinee helped me hold my sweet babies.

It was at this point I knew they wouldn't be with us much longer.

It was at this point I prayed that God would take our sweet babies so they didn't have to struggle to breathe anymore.

It was at this point my babies went from my arms to the arms of Jesus.

It was at this point my life changed forever.

I saw that you changed your profile pic on FB a few days ago & I wondered if it was the anniversary of M&M's birthday. I should've taken the time to ask. But even though I didn't, I wanted you to know that I will always remember reading their story for the first time -- long before I "met" you through Susie Sams. I can't remember who introduced me to the girls' story, but it was online somewhere or other. I shared it w/ my girlfriend who lives in your town (not sure if you want me to say where that is on your blog comments!) and she prayed for you that day, too. Hard to believe that it's been 5 years ago. I look forward to meeting your girls in Heaven one day!
