A year ago today, our lives changed forever

Today, August 28, is the spine-tingling anniversary of the best day in the world -- the day we received our referral. It's hard to imagine that any day will ever top that one for wild adrenalin highs, Imodium-popping suspense, and floating-in-the-air giddiness. I know we'll never forget that day for the rest of our lives. Man oh man, what a day, what a day. To relive that wonderful time, I've been re-reading all of the posts and comments about our referral: A year ago today, we hadn't slept a wink A year ago today, we checked the phone every 3 minutes to make sure it was still working A year ago today, our blog was getting hammered A year ago today, our bodies were vibrating with anticipation A year ago today, we had crazy hopes and expectations A year ago today, we got the call that would change our lives forever A year ago today, our wildest dreams came true A year ago today, we learned that you were twins (!) A year ago today, we saw your tiny faces for the first time A year ago today, you grabbed hold of our hearts and never let go A year ago today, we went from just a husband and wife to a family A year ago today, we felt like the whole world was celebrating with us A year ago today, the best year of our lives began To commemorate the occasion, and document how much the girls have changed in a year, I put together a little monthly slideshow. Click the image below for the slideshow, then click "i" on the first slide to turn on captions: Referral Day (Aug 28, 2007) Ro and Ree -- you beautiful funny smart impish larger-than-life sweethearts -- we love you so much and are the luckiest parents in the world to have you in our lives. Now I can't write any more, because looking at your baby pictures and seeing how fast you're growing up has made me all weepy and I need to go get some (more) icecream and calm down.
