...my teeny tiny twins, I knew I was a goner! Yesterday, January 16, would have been their birthday if they had been born on their due date, seven years ago.
Unfortunately for them (fortunately for me), they decided to make their appearance two full months (9 weeks early), on November 16.
Until you become a mother yourself, you never really understand the power of a mother's love. If you read my birth story post, you'll learn that I didn't get to see the twins right away. They were twelve hours old, maybe more...I'm not really sure due to the demerol they had me on...before I got to see Pretty. Boo had already been taken to the Children's hospital by then. But even twelve hours later my love and need to protect them was so fierce it overwhelmed me. It was at that moment that I fully understood what a Mother's Love really means.
Did you have the same reaction when you became a mom? If you're not a mother, did you have a reaction to something the first time you saw it? I'd love to hear your stories!
