Have you ever seen babies smile so early?? This is still in the hospital! What little angels..
Amanda's AMAZING mom Janie holding Presley.. She was SO excited throughout this journey. She was so supportive of Amanda, helping her around the house and with the kids during her pregnancy, she even drove to their house at 2am and watched their kids when Amanda went into labor.. Her step-mom, Sue, stayed the entire week when Amanda went back home to help her with her recovery! I'm so thankful for Amanda's amazing support system. We are forever grateful to them.. Her & Randy have a truly outstanding family.. So blessed..
After 2 nights in the hospital.. time to go home sweet home.. June 10, 2012..

Fallon strapped & ready to go!
Presley ready too!
On the way out of our room all of the nurses at the station had to stop & tell the girls goodbye.. they insisted we go back to visit them all someday, and we will.. we were so blessed to have an exceptional team that took care of the girls & Amanda.. they were all as mesmerized by this amazing journey as we all are.. Our dreams came true.. we received the best gift in the world, the gift of life.. our two beautiful miracles, Presley Jayde & Fallon Celeste, as well as amazing friends who are part of our family for life.. Looking forward to what's to come..
I'd like to end this post with one of my favorite quotes of Amanda's that she shared on this blog at the beginning of our journey.. I loved it so much I had a shirt made for her with this quote... Thank you Amanda for sailing away and following your dreams.. and making ours come true.. we are forever grateful..
I just wanted to share a special video/song that I hold dear to my heart.. it expresses the emotions of those who are faced with challenges with having a child.. thank God for Angels like Amanda who can help women like me have a family of our own! ~Kristen
