This photo is worth a thousand words to me.

My girls alive (despite the odds), thriving, at home, together in a crib, and of course, of their own accord, facing each other. Welcome home, girls.

The girls conspiring against the bedtime routine.

What would we do without the Swaddlers.

Johanna's got the rules down: you can touch the hair, not the face. She's cool with that.

Annabelle home at last.

What a miracle! :) Such beautiful little girls, and so incredibly touching to see them together at last. What blessings upon blessings! I am so grateful! I love you so much!! I am aching to talk, but I know it may be a while. I shall try to be patient. :)

AAaaaaaah! I was SO excited to see this post. I'm glad they're together at last, and I hope the rest of the family is adjusting well, too. They look like they've filled out a lot, but are still so unbelievably tiny; I can't believe how big that watermelon hat is on Annabelle!

What a happy time! So glad your girls are home...my first thought in bringing Ivy home was, "they let us have her and they can't take her back!" Enjoy all their sweetness!!

Hi Shiffler Family

This is the Heisey family from the NICU (Kaylee, which used to be Annabelle's neighbor!)

Glad to hear everything is going well and the girls are home!

Thank you again for that burp cloth!

The Heisey's :)
