One year ago today.
Eggs were retrieved.
Sperm was given.
Eggs were injected with sperm.
And two little lives began.
The two most beautiful and precious lives I have ever known.
They have made my life complete, and changed it in ways I never thought possible.
I am hopelessly, madly, in love with them.
It has been the best year of my life.
Daniel and Callie are one year old today. It's so amazing to think that just a year ago they were two little fertilized eggs. Conception and life is a miraculous thing - what those two little cells have become.
One year ago today I was given the most precious gift in the world. It is a debt I can never repay. I can't express to my sister what her gift means to me. I can only tell her that some day when she has her own babies, she will understand the love I feel for my two precious gifts. And then maybe she will understand the magnitude of the gift she gave me.
I asked my mother to buy her an ice cream cake. (see this post for the explanation)
