“Over 5 years we have struggled through 3 IUI’s, 4 rounds of IVF, several RE’s, hundreds of appointments and the loss of two little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two (semi)perfect little girls! Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won’t keep us down. Each day has it’s own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Today’s goal – getting to tomorrow.”
I’ve always had admiration for women who could handle twins, but to be able to handle twins with disabilities requires a greater word that doesn’t exist. My co-author has a son with disabilities and I had often times wondered, “How can she do it?” I tried to imagine what it would be like, how do you cope in the every day? Kristen’s blog CocoandGigi details the life of her and her daughters. I think the most adorable post I’ve seen so far was the semi-memorial to Grace’s pacifier. =) With an absolutely captivating life, stories, photos and even videos… Kristen opens her heart to anyone who just happens to stop. I was honored to give her 2nd place in our Beautiful Moment Writing contest for a story that brings you all the essence of one beautiful day and the hope that spring will finally get here. I honestly suggest adding Kristen as a Friend through CocoandGigi they’ll truly melt your heart.
