That Moment Where 2 Sisters Meet...

I know that some of you have been dying to see how Hazel reacted to meeting her new sister. I must admit, it hasn't been easy for me to share this moment. If you have been reading a while, you know there are certain posts and events that are really hard for me to share. This happens to be one of those posts. I don't want to part with it. I want to keep this moment to myself. I don't want to share. Yet, I am sharing with you.

I want you to see the joy, the perfection, the emotion of those first moments that Hazel and Nola spent together. This space to me is somewhere to educate but it's more a place of peace.

This space is about trust, love and acceptance.

I want you all to be a part of these moments. So, I am sharing...


I have been trying to figure out how to present this life changing moment in just the right way, with just the right words. What I realize is, there is nothing I can say that can express the emotion that a mother feels to see her daughter meet a person that will forever change the course of her life.



The black and white print on the screen in front of me will never be able to speak louder than the photos from this moment. The way Hazel locked her eyes on Nola and would not, could not, look away. It's like she knew the importance of this little human on a level we couldn't understand. She wanted to be near her. She, on her own accord, kissed her and hugged her. AND I NEARLY DIED right there in that hospital bed.


And then a whole minute later she was pushing Nola away and wanted to get down to go explore the halls of the hospital and play with her cousins. Girlfriend will not be held still for long no matter what is at stake.

Either way here is our new little family. Unbelievable!



I missed my girl while in the hospital...



Nothing makes more sense than this pic right here...



Welcome to our new life, with our new addition.


So there you have it. Our lives forever changed.
