2011 has brought us so much to be thankful for.
Modern medicine for one. It is what made our boys possible, not just the fertility treatments but the prenatal care I received & the care our boys received when they were born 11 weeks premature. Also modern medicine made my dad & my dear friends cancer detected & treated early, requiring neither of them to have to endure chemo or radiation.
I'm thankful for all our family & friends who helped us prepare for the boys arrival with gifts, love & time. (aka help)
I'm thankful for family, friends, facebook & random strangers that made it possible for us to raise the money we needed to get our boys their plagiocephaly helmets.
And of course our beautiful baby boys!!!
The year did have it's ups & downs of course. The scare we had with my dad falling off a ladder, which led to his cancer being diagnosed. The loss my cousin who was serving in Afghanistan at just 21 years old & the loss of my uncle who became ill suddenly & passed away the next day. These were devastating for our family but have only made our bond stronger & shown us not to take anyone or anything for granted.
I hope that 2012 brings everyone happiness & good health.
Be safe in your endeavors tonight & Happy New Year!!!
