We have someone very special in our family...she has had a year like no other. Truly, when I tell you all about her year, you will feel the same.
Today, Susan got her official Masters of Education Degree. It was only a year ago that she started her Masters Program. It was only a year ago that she also was going through IVF. She started off doing pretty good until late July, when she started to have complications with her pregnancy...little Haley wanted to jump the gate at 23 weeks. Susan was then put on bed rest in the hospital for 7 weeks. Then when the babies were 30 weeks, they decided (the twins) that it was time for their appearance in the world (09-09-09). They were born C-Section at only 2+ pounds each. Susan kept a constant visitation schedule at the hospital until the twins were 2 months old. On November 9th, the girls got to come home. Oh, and by the way did I mention it was a new home. Susan had to move in and decorate before the girls arrived home.
Then sometime in January, Susan was surprised with more news...she is pregnant. As most young mothers know...sleep is something you only dream about when you have a new baby let alone twin babies. I honestly don't know any one who can handle all that in a year but Susan has and she has never complained or suggested dropping her schooling. She has done everything a young lady could possibly do and then some. I have heard many who have gone back to school to get their Masters... they were so deep in writing papers and studying for that time in their lives they had little time for anything else. We are so proud of all that Susan has accomplished and want her to know how excited we are for her. Congratulations, Susan...We Love You!!!
