Mother's Day

Trying to coordinate three doctors at the same time for one appointment is a nightmare! If you haven't guessed yet our Care Council fell through yesterday. We are trying again next week. I will update everyone after it happens, if it happens!

There have been a few of you asking for the links to Emma's Go Fund Me account and auction set up by our friend Arielle. Here are the links, Emma's Go Fund Me and Emma's Auction

As we approach Mothers Day I reflect back to the very first time I held my babies. They were in the NICU with several machines and feeding tubes hooked up to their tiny three and four pound frames. A nurse asked me if I wanted to hold one, I sat down in a glider and she handed me the smallest baby I had ever held in my life. This little creature looked up at me, we locked eyes and suddenly she had my heart. I looked up at Brad and he snapped this picture.
That teeny little love is our Emma. Before holding her I was very concerned I wasn't strong enough for NICU multiples. After this moment I remember clearly saying to Brad "we can do this". I still say that today, we can do this. Emma was the first baby to make me a mother, it has never been easy but it has been rewarding. Being Emma and Gracie's mother has been my toughest job with the worst hours but I'd volunteer to do it all over again. So thank you to my three little loves, Emma, Gracie and Cora for making me a Mama and filling our home with love.


  1. This made me cry! God is so good. Happy Mother's Day to a very special mama!

  2. Thanks be to God for the undeserved gift of children! You have been blessed with your three little sweeties. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day Anya and I'm so sorry they cancelled the care council!
