(From left to right: my brother-in-law Jason, in-laws, brother Jason, sister-in-law Kristi, Laura, Steve, Brian, and myself...one half of the table).
(Again left to right: the other half of the table...me (again), my dad, my mom was taking the picture, my grandpa, my sister-in-law Jana, brother Brandon, sister Courtney, and brother-in-law Jason (again)...and the MIL's head).
I will always treasure these pictures. Simple snapshots. Nothing professional. But perfect. They signify the support of loved ones. And it was because of their love and support that we were able to get through the first few days and weeks after losing the girls. And their support is still getting us through. But please be saying extra prayers for us this week because this week SHOULD have been the best week of my life. This is the week the girls SHOULD have been born. On Thursday of this week I would have been 37 weeks pregnant. And my doctor was going to induce me on either October 14 or 15. I am working on the 14th but hanging out with my mom on the 15th. Hoping I make it through with all the prayers, support, and of course through the help of my Heavenly Father. Thank you so much for your never-ending love and support as we continue on this difficult journey we call life.
And another snippet from our daily devotional...
Above all, remember--when God hides His face from you, do not say that He has forgotten you. He is simply waiting for a little while to make you love Him more. And once He comes, you will rejoice with the inexpressible "joy of the LORD" (Neh 8:10). Waiting on Him exercises your gift of grace and tests your faith. Therefore continue to wait in hope, for although the promise may linger, it will never come too late (Streams in the Desert).
And had to share these too...
Hopefully someday I will have a picture like this with my own children...

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
