Yesterday - three years after the exact date of refferral - a copy of the above picture arrived in my mailbox. It was a copy I had ordered to hang up in my office, along with a bunch of other pictures. The coincidence wasn't lost on me. And tonight as we were reading stories to our little boys I studied their faces with extra supermom-power-intensity.
I can't believe they're mine. I can't believe I've been so lucky. I can't believe I love them so much. I can't believe that the above little boy came home to us and started what has turned out to be a pretty awesome little family.
I can't believe his cheeks were so darn chubby.(sigh...love them)
