Update on Jack & Jill

I heard through the grapevine our twins are doing great. Obviously we can't be given specifics but I was told that Jack is still standing up for himself. Apparently Jill tried to cut in on a conversation he was having, he showed her the hand and told her he wasn't done yet.

That's our boy!!!

When they came to us, he didn't speak much (she was the jabber jaw and even interpreted for him). He was a little doormat. Over time he came into his own and it made me cry (happy tears) to hear some of the good stuff actually stuck!

Their memories of us have surely faded. He may not even remember his former, meek self.. but we all saw him transform. Him being a healthier, happier little boy because of the time spent with us made every minute of those 8 months worth it.

Even if it did mean having our hearts broken.

Of all the posts I've read today, this one brings me closest to tears.

Mixed tears.

I'm so glad to hear things are going well for Jack and Jill.

No matter what they remember, you and your DH made a significant difference for those two...and you will always have the beauty of knowing this in your heart.
