This "multiple" world I now belong to....

It's a strange thing, an odd realization that I am now a part of this community of parents of multiples. It really is a community. The support is amazing, the resources are incredible and you really feel a part of something cool, unique and desired.

It really is true that only parents of multiples can get what you are going through, and although other parents are an incredible support and the friendships they bring are irreplaceable...there is something to be said for the friendships you form with other multiples parents.

I feel like I got access to this secret club that no one else knows about, or that only famous people can get in to.
We have names for each other like, MOMS (Mother's of Multiples) and we refer to parents without multiples as parents with singletons.

We have cool websites just for us and we see everything in doubles or more.
The other cool thing is that being a Mom of multiples puts you in the group of twins or more. There isn't a special 'triplets' club or 'quads' club....more than two babies at once and you are all friends for life.

I have found an incredible community of MOMS in the blogging world...it's been fantastic and I feel like I could call any one of these amazing MOMS and have a heart to heart. I feel like in an instant we would all be best friends.

I met Samantha, (we actually haven't met yet)...we were introduced via Facebook through a mutual friend and her twin girls were born about two weeks after my boys. We have walked through the last several months of our pregnancies together online and have given each other tips and encouragement.

All this to say....this Mom of Multiples thing is crazy. It's intense and it's wild...but thank the Lord that because of it, there is a great and deep camaraderie amongst other MOMS and it's not about competition, it's about helping one another and supporting each other no matter your background, belief or location.

I have to say...it's just pretty darn cool.

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!


Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.
