They’re here!!

 It is with overwhelming joy and tremendous gratitude that we announce the arrival of our two gorgeous girls.

 Reagan Linda (6 lbs, 12 oz) and Isabella Jennifer, 6 lbs. 15 ozs,  and were born on Thursday, August 11 at 5:31 pm and 5:35 pm. You can view photos and a special video here.

 Our little miracles are beautiful and healthy, and we are eternally grateful to our partner Jennifer for her sacrifice and her gift to us. Jennifer, you carefully tended to them and safely shepherded them into this world. We don’t know how many thank you’s will ever be enough.

 We thank God for these two blessings. Our appreciation extends around the world to family and friends and supporters like you who have sent in your prayers and warm wishes. You lifted us in our darkest hour and gave us courage and strength to never quit our dreams to grow our family.

 It has been an inconceivable journey…and it continues. We hope that you’ll continue to share it with us.

    I was trying to see what anyone could possibly see as negative…in doing so I inadvertently made another negative…..scratch that please. I believe you are blessed beyond imagination and am very happy for your family! Thank you for sharing your story and reminding us life is precious, although not always the way we want or imagine it to be….blessings still prevail. Godspeed to all of you as your journey continues.

    I’ve been checking this blog every day to see if Jennifer had the babies yet. So so so happy for you guys. I can’t think of anyone more deserving for such a beautiful double miracle. God bless your family. Very nice pictures and my most favorite was the family picture for sure. What a happy ending to the journey :)
