This photo gets me all teary-eyed.
I don't think it will ever lose it's intensity.
Their sweet and proud Dad
thought to snap it
just after their birth,
as they put the bands of
4 tiny little miracles
on our wrists.
They were bound to us,
and us to them.
It meant they made it.
A whole lot of prayers answered.
It brought us back to the
very first time we became parents.
Sometimes it's not the photos
that I take time to coordinate outfits for
or plan out that are the most meaningful.
It's ones like these that are taken,
spontaneously, joyously, that capture it all.
Every time I look at it,
I will never forget,
how I felt,
in that incredible moment.
