Springtime Miracle

I keep thinking I’m ready to surface again, but when I’ve tried writing a blog post I’ve heard my soul whispering softly, not yet, not yet…  And that’s okay. Returning from the fog of grief was always going to be a slow and tentative process.

Today as we watched our first crocus open to the sun I realised I am ready to share our family’s news – in fact, I really want to shout from the rooftops that Hope and Mystery have re-entered our realm. My youngest daughter and her husband are expecting twins! I was with them in Chicago when they found out in October, saw them again last month at their baby shower and gender reveal in California, and will be visiting them in their new home in Minnesota when the babies are born – so I feel as involved as I am delighted. Two new grandbabies in our still-growing family!

Do you know about Gender Reveals? I thought I did. But guess what? The parents find out at the same time as the guests! Who knew? At the scan, the parents can opt to get the photos with the news in a sealed envelope which they then entrust to a party store who fills a box with the  appropriately coloured balloons. The box is then opened at the party, with everyone finding out at the same time. Pass the tissues…

The news? Twin A is a girl, Twin B is a boy! And, happily, both are healthy, growing, and active. To me, it is nothing short of a miracle that we get to watch them develop even before they are born.
