Introducing Our Daughters

August 15, 2012


Meet our precious girls.

Beauties, huh? And they’ve got the sweetest dispositions to match. This photo captures something of their personalities: H is reserved, observant, sensitive, serious, and smart as a whip. S is warm, friendly, affectionate, trusting, and fun. Of course, these are just initial impressions, and we’ll get to know their many facets in the days and months to come.

I’ve decided not to use their names on the blog to help protect their privacy — initials will have to suffice. And I’m going to be judicious about sharing photos — at least for now — as I navigate the new waters of blogging about our family life. Everyone handles this differently; some bloggers put it all out there, and others share no pics or info at all. I plan on something in the middle, but I’m not quite sure what it will look like yet.

They are precious. How nice that they are twins and that they have always had each other too, even though their start in life was rough. You can see how connected they are even in that picture. Blessings to you all.

What beautiful little girls! Zoe, I am so happy for you and B–and for the girls! My own twin girls are our youngest children. They are also fraternal twins and have different personalities, yet are and have always been very close. I hope it will be the same with your sweet girls. You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

You don’t know me and I don’t know you, but that picture made me teary! What precious little girls. Congrats to you and your new family!

Wow. We see so much in those faces. The journey officially has begun for all
four of you. Life gets so much more REAL now in the best way. No more wondering who and when. It is Here and Now. Such joy I feel for them and you and B. You know that my C. was 4 when I got him but just like you he had been in my heart from the beginning. Hugs all around:-)


23 Amber August 16, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Oh Zoe! Welcome to the other side! What beautiful gifts! I pray that God knits your hearts together in a way that transcends your deepest hopes. Today they are your daughters and I pray that one day they’ll be your best friends. My sincerest, most heart felt congratulations to all of you!
Grateful wife to Kyle and blessed mom to:
Caleb 19, Abigail 17, Madeline 16, Seth 9, Micah 8, Lily & Ella 6(twins!) & Elijah 3

Well, my friend, it appears that all those hours spent at 30,000+ feet were well worth it. Your daughters are indeed lovely. I look forward to hearing how this story, so long in its earlier chapters, will now continue to unfold. This is wonderful news!
