On Friday, March 15, 2019, I spent my birthday at a routine ultrasound appointment where I got to hear both of my twins’ healthy heartbeats. Little did I know this would be the last time I would get to hear their hearts beating together. They were perfect and almost the exact same size. Actually, the whole pregnancy had been pretty perfect as far as twin pregnancies go […]

At most, we had to wait seven more weeks to meet you.

 The doctors were concerned about your growth initially, but we showed them otherwise at your 33 week ultrasound. Days before we lost you, we could see everything was perfect. It was almost time to meet you, Luna. We were all so giddy.

Give the treasured gift of remembrance.
