The hardest thing I ever had to deal with was losing my twin girls Janae and Jasmine. It’s still very fresh in my mind so this post will be brief. In 2009 my husband and I once again began our journey to grow our family. We found ourselves needing the assistance of modern medicine as we embarked upon our IVF journey. The first round was a success as we discovered we were indeed pregnant! This was a joyous time for our family. We were completely overjoyed when we discovered it was twins and ecstatic when the ultrasound technician said “looks like twin girls!” Needless to say we began making plans and seeing visions of how our family dynamics would change with their arrival. We thanked God and continued to believe He was in control.
On an uneventful day in August in 2010, I found myself in the emergency room just checking to make sure everything was fine with my girls. I soon found out I was in full blown labor at 22 weeks pregnant. The nurses and doctors began to explain what that meant in medical terms but I already knew in layman terms. Over the course of the next 72 hours we welcomed Janae and Jasmine into our lives only to say goodbye too soon.
This event literally broke our family down, heartbroken only begins to describe our feelings during this experience. Our faith in God was the ONLY thing that allowed us to heal and move past the disappointment.
Since then on August 18-21 our family takes time to celebrate the impactful lives of Janae and Jasmine Holley. We thank God for blessing us with their presence and we rejoice knowing we will see them again.
