2.5 years ago this board was a lifesaver for me. Literally it was the string that kept me hanging on. Some may remember my post in the middle of the night. It was about my giving birth to my beautiful daughter Kennedy Kay. Sadly, she passed away within 6 hours and we were left devastated.

Fast forward a year.....at that point we were trying to get a grip on our infertility issues and add to our family again. It was a very long process. I give my doctor major props on getting us pregnant again. We did it the old fashion way, but I was using strong injections to help me ovulate.

Well, it did help me ovulate. So much so that on January 4, 2013 I gave birth to twin boys. Campbell John and Keegan James were born at 34 weeks and 6 days. They were big for being 5 weeks early and only spent 24 hours on NICU. We all came home 4 days later and life has taken on such a blessed feeling. Our oldest son, 8, is thriving with them and we, although chaotic at times, fall more and more in love everyday with our family of 5.

I shared, and received so many prayers for our family with the loss of our daughter, that I wanted to share our joy as well. And say thank you! To each of you who posted on that 10 page post, I can never explain what your kindness did for me. You, a basic stranger, kept me going until I could do it on my own. It was a long road to get to this spot. I'm so glad though, that we didn't stop on our journey!

Congratulations from another preemie twin mama to boys (whose middle names are John and James!)
Hello 34 weeks, yay for you, that in itself is awesome!

This place sure can help you during those lows and it is so heartwarming to hear about your current joys....

By the way this place has given me a wealth of knowledge in dealing with the everyday with preemies and twins!

And they share a birthday with ME!

Dave Barry on Christmas...
"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'"
