Twins Made In Heaven

Seven year ago this month we were pregnant with twins, one was growing in our hearts in Guatemala and was in my womb. We were so excited that we had finally sent off all our paperwork to bring home a child we had waited for for so very long. We were also very excited that God had given us our miracle baby after my mom fasted for us.

We had planned for "virtual twins" only to have our hearts broken 3 months later when our social worker informed us that they do not allow "virtual twins" and they would not allow us to adopt our baby in Guatemala we had waited on for so long. This baby was ours, we had prayed for this child, bought things for this child and fell in love with this child only to have someone take him away from us at the last moment before we could finally see his face and hold him.

Little did we know God still had "virtual twins" in our future. Nine months after Amaya was born we were shocked to find out we were pregnant again. How could we be pregnant? We cried for 4 years not being able to get pregnant. God finally gave us a miracle and then 9 months later I was nursing, and being careful not to get pregnant but God didn't let that stop him. Our second miracle came just 18 months after our first miracle.

When we found Jaxson and knew beyond a shadow of a doubt he was ours I didn't know what I was going to do because he was only 7 months younger than Paige. How was I going to convince a social worker that God wanted these 2 children to be together. They had already taken our other baby from us what were we going to do.

I decided to look for a Christian agency, an agency that believed God should decided on the age difference and not them. God led me to the most incredible agency ever. If this social worker had said "NO" then our twins made in heaven would not be together.

Unless you have "virtual twins" that are so in love with each other you could never understand the love these 2 have for each other. I don't have experience with "real" twins but I know it couldn't be much different than what these 2 share.

They always want to know where the other twin is at, they know what each other are thinking, they make sure they have twin cuddle time everyday and the first thing they do when they wake up is to peek to see if their twin is still asleep.
I honestly believe these 2 precious souls were together once before in heaven, separated by birth and for some reason put on different sides of the world but God put them back together!!!

Awww...love that!

And I agree, God did something big with them! I can't see what He will continue to do with them down the road!

P.S. TWINS ROCK! Not that I'm biased or anything!
