Thankful


Today we are thankful.

  • We are thankful for our amazing babies Charlie and Lily – true miracles and more than we ever could have wished for.

  • We are thankful that we had the privilege of being mommy and daddy to our beautiful Annaleigh, if only for far too short a time.

  • We are thankful to all the family, friends and total strangers who have given us so much love and support this past year. We never would have survived without you.

  • We are thankful to the amazing staff at the St. Peter’s NICU for saving our babies lives.

  • We are thankful for each other and that the love we have is strong enough to see us through anything.

So today we are thankful. This has been both the best and worst year of our lives. But as we sit down today to eat our turkey with Charlie and Lily snuggled in our laps, we will be thankful for every moment of it, because it led us here. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Thanksgiving pics of the babies... you can most def tell they are twins(is that ok to say? I'm sorry I just don't want to hurt anyone in anyway!) But they look SOOO much a like in this pic, though Lily has her beauty so you can tell who she is and Charlie is as handsome as ever! A lot of ppl have been skipping right over Thanksgiving this year and going straight to Christmas and I think its terrible so it was SOOO refreshing to see this and the leaves and the fall colors! I LOVE IT!!!!
Hope you can get some sleep today Brooke!
With love and prayers,
Gretchen
