Tabitha & Priscilla's Story

Our first picture of our girls...

This is an account of our journey with Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome ( check out this link if you would like to know the details!) with our daughters Tabitha and Priscilla.  I wanted to have all my blogposts about this experience all in one place, mostly for myself, but also for anyone else who might be interested. I don't think I'll necessarily include every post-but at least the important ones. However, for reference all posts from the end of August 2012 to December 2012 have some connection to this journey....

Mother's Day: Pregnancy Announcement (!)

Double Mint Gum: Twins Announcement (!!)

Doubly Blessed Thoughts on being pregnant with Twins...

What are the odds?! Finding out our girls share a placenta ( and possibly an amniotic sac, though this turned out to not be the case).

Drum roll please! We found out the sex of the babies! 

Things start to get difficult: We are faced with Twin to Twin transfer...

A swiss ball prayer: I think this is when I can look back and pen point when I knew something was really wrong, but just wasn't quite at a place to believe it yet.

Sufficient: Faced with the truth of it all...

Introducing, Priscilla and Tabitha: I am so thankful that the Lord gave us both their names before things started to hit the fan.

These two posts were pre-surgery (fetoscopic laser ablation) and so much happened, So.... Quickly. But I am thankful for the Lord's help through it all. 

Post-Surgery: Day One

Day Two: Praying so hard for Priscilla  and then loosing her seemed like a bad dream.

Day by Day: Facing the loss of a baby

The month of September flew by it was filled with returning to Georgia, going back to Texas and back into the Hospital.  And I spent pretty much the whole month of October in the hospital.

Some of major things I learned during that time:
From Luke 5:5 
That all seasons end...eventually
"Arise and Walk" what else I learned from Luke 5
A new appreciation for Hannah
Time, according to God
My husband: An example

Finally, at the beginning of January, our girls were born: Birth Story .

Your girls' stories (and your story of faith) is humbling and inspiring. I'm so sorry you had to go through all of this. Thank you for being brave enough to share it all for God's glory. Praying for you and your family!
