a BLAST from the past...

Today my Mom & I took the babies by Dr Denker's office, our fertility doctor, so he could see how the babies he helped create have grown. This is not a first time thing, I try to stop by & visit all of the people that have helped us along this journey. First of all the babies did not get their usual nap. They usually go down around 130pm & sleep till 430pm. Well today they sort of skipped it all together & surprised me at how well they behaved. Once we entered his office I noticed a young couple & another woman waiting in his lobby. I started to feel bad that I had my children with me & they were most likely there to get one. I SO remember what it was like when I saw other peoples babies at those low periods of our fertility struggle while I was yearning for a baby myself! After having that "moment" I look down to see that my children are jumping & dancing all over the place to the radio being played in the lobby. Uh Oh! I SO wanted to tell those women about OUR story, how I was once like them & that there is hope, to look at me now but the words could not come out. The babies were oblivious & probably just thought they were on yet another outing with Mommy & Grandma. Little did they know that this was "the guy" that came through with his promise to give me baby SO many months ago. I can still remember him telling me that as I was sitting in his office bawling my eyes out. I can get you a baby! WOW! I NEVER thought I would have a child call me "Mom". Now I have 4 of them! See what happens when you get what you wish for! hahah! I think I made out in the deal wouldn't you say? haha! I owe him a lot so taking some EXTRA time to stop by for them to see the babies is the least I can do. The babies treated him like he was Santa's brother! ha! As you can tell by the picture they were not very happy! It's been...

I love your blog...your story, your little ones, everything!

I am sure that you all gave the women hope that they, too, would one day be a mom themselves--and the picture is priceless, lol!
