‘You were the size of a poppy seed when I fell in love with you, barely a blip on the ultrasound screen. In an instant, I knew life would never be the same.’: Mom shares sweet ode to daughters

“I never believed in the notion of love at first sight, but when they first laid you on my chest and I looked at you through the tears, I knew it to be true. Unconditional, infinite love. When you are old and gray, and I am older and grayer, when the world has long stopped seeing you as a baby, I will look at you and still see the one I rocked in my arms. And I will love you.”

“‘He doesn’t have it.’ We hit a dead end. Knowing we needed to be exposed to new doctors, we put a poll on Instagram with three different states. We put our home on the market, sold it and all our furniture with it within 24 hours, and moved from Utah to Texas.”
