I grew up with a younger brother.
But I always wished for a sister.
When we had our first child, our daughter,
I remember saying that I had my girl and
it didn't matter what we had after that day.
And then we went on to have 2 sweet boys.
In between, we lost a few babies early
in our pregnancies. But we hoped for
one more healthy baby and kept trying.
It didn't matter if it was a boy or a girl.
To this day, we are forever grateful for the
healthiest, tiny baby girl, born on International
Day of the Midwife (May 5th) who rounded
out our family by becoming our 2nd daughter
that day. And our 1st daughter ended up with
her long awaited baby sister! They are 8 years
apart but are great friends. With their great
gramma in the 2nd picture. They were 14 years
old and 6 years old then. It seemed they were
so far apart but now they are so close! I hope
they stay close all their lives and continue to
be great supports to each other. This is LOVE!
Do you have a sister? Or two?
If not, do you wish you did?
