The Beginning (Sort of)

I have been trying to decide where to begin our story. I could go all the way back to the very beginning when Ken and I met but I decided to start in March when we found out we were expecting. We were suprised to find out that we were going to have another baby but imagine how we felt when the OB told us it was twins. It took us a few weeks to get adjusted to the idea but once we got used to it we were sooooo excited. We later discovered that the twins were identical and what they call monochorionic diamniotic twins. This means that each baby has its own amniotic sac but they share a placenta. We were told of a rare condition that could occur with these type of twins but the chance of it happening was pretty low - 10-15%. So, we were just chugging along, enjoying our summer. We were regulars at storytime and working on our summer reading, we spent tons of time at the pool and we had big plans for VBS, swimming lessons and the beach at St. Simons. Well, God had other plans.
