Mom to Willow and Darwin

We made it 12 weeks and 1 day I  kept dreaming they were girls so I named them the girl names we picked out. I got my tubes tides 5 years ago after my third child and third c-section. We felt it was the responsible thing to do, but we did want more children just settled on adoption. I secretly prayed every night to get pregnant again and we did and then to find out we were having identical twins! We were so excited we called them our miracle babies. Then Friday I had an ultrasound of them kicking and moving hearts beating and on Sunday I was bleeding and they were gone. Our miracles ripped away from us. How fragile life is ….
