When I was pregnant with Rebecca, I wouldn't take any of my gifts out of their boxes or packages until I brought my baby home from the hospital. It was hard to believe that I was really going to get to be a mommy.
When they said she was a girl, I was so happy. I wanted a girl so bad! She took her sweet time coming (33 hours of labor and 4 hours of pushing.) She arrived looking up instead of down. It caused me a great deal of pain, but what a great way to enter the world...looking up.
Eighteen months later, Caroline entered the world with one push. Another girl. Why God saw fit to bless me double... I will never understand. I always dreamed of a couple of sisters.
Along with their daddy, they are the joy of my days.
