Today is my twins’ first day of first grade. I cannot believe how far they’ve come, between the IVF to conceive them, the premature labor, the time in the NICU, the challenges of finding out about their needs, the occupational, speech, physical therapies, their strength through the divorce, their courage on the first day of kindergarten and their excitement and joie de vivre over their first day of first grade.
To you, my sweet twins, I wish you love, life, happiness, joy and to always have the courage and excitement to take on every day like you did today. I love you with my heart, my soul, my everything.
For the record, I swear I brushed J’s hair before I took this picture. He is part Harry Potter with that hair!
