Last week we celebrated the twins second birthday. I cannot believe how fast the last two years have gone. I remember so distinctly the few days leading up to placement. It was on Friday, June 19 that we first got a call from our case worker. She told us that they had a birthmom on her way to the hospital who hadn't placed. And she was having twins. Can we show her your profile? Of course we were open to any situation and answered yes. The boys were born early Saturday morning. We got a call Saturday afternoon letting us know the birthmom was close to making her decision, but wanted a conference call with us. Could we talk to her on Sunday? Of course.
We spoke with her early afternoon, and then left for church. Not long after we got to church, we got another call--she wanted to tell us herself that she had chosen us. Happy Father's Day to Dan. We hopped on a plane (thanks to a friend who flies for Continental and got us on stand-by) to Vegas, drove to Salt Lake, and were able to meet with the birthmom on the morning of the 22nd. After signing all those papers--they were ours, and we finally got to meet them about 4 that afternoon.
And now look at them.
They have brought so much joy into our home, not to mention days full of chaos, but we love it all.
Brady is and always has been the big brother.
Carter is my sweet baby.
We had a super low key birthday, We wanted to get some trikes, but still haven't picked them up. Thank goodness grandma sent them presents so they had something to open. We went out to dinner, and then had cupcakes back home. And Tyler is the greatest big brother. Happy Birthday boys!
