Friends of ours are foster parents to these sweet little 8 week old twins.
We had the priviledge of keeping these angels overnight on Wednesday.
It's funny how much you forget in four years!
We had everything that comes with newborns times two!
Twice the bottles, twice the burping, twice the diapers, twice the dressing.
Twice the sweetness, twice the coo-ing, twice the twinkle of a grin.
Twenty little toes, twenty little fingers, four little ears, two little noses.
Baby T and Baby A really left a mark on our hearts!
Their future is yet to be written. Their "forever home" is still waiting for them. Their "forever mom" still wondering.
God gave them the gift of each other so that they would never be alone in this world and in His mercy and grace, I know that He has a special purpose for them.
We held them for a moment with all the love and kindness in our hearts, whispering to them things that we hope they remember, but suspect that they will not. We longed to impress upon each of them how very precious they are so that they could draw upon that if ever they feel that they are unwanted. It is a big wish, I know, for one so small to carry such a faint whistper with them, but we whispered just the same.
One thing is certain, these sweet little babies are getting a wonderful start in this great big world! Their foster parents are filling their little lives with love and security. The foster parent's constant kind presence will undoubtedly write upon these babies hearts that they are a blessing.
