"The Triplets first 2 weeks of life were spent in very snowy, very COLD, very friendly Minneapolis, MN..."
Ru & Miguel, Triplets' Daddies
Ten years ago on this day and time it was 11 degrees, just saying.
Today at this time as I write this, it is 11 below ZERO. Nevertheless, it was COLD then and now. I still can recall Ru showing up at the Court House in Hennepin County with a jacket lined with wires and a remote going through security! To us in MN, that is pretty funny. For those of you who did not get this... he had a heated jacket!
This year was so special for me because for the first time after carrying them for 33 1/2 weeks, I finally got to HUG the Triplets! I am not the children's biological mother but I am the birth mom. I saw each baby as they took them out of my belly and cried happy tears. I didn't hold the babies, but then I never held my own (until they were cleaned up, lol). I realized later on that I would have been ok and wished that I had taken a few moments to hold each baby to say good-bye. Their dads mentioned that they would bring the kids to MN when they were older so they could see where they were born and to meet me. So thankful and blessed to have that time with them this summer.
