Today, they would have been ten.

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the premature birth and subsequent death of my first two children, identical twin boys.

And, I’m okay.

This is the first year that I didn’t BROOD over them for a month or so before this date. I saw the calendar turn to August, glanced at the number 14, and I was okay. And each day that passed, I realized that I was okay. I made plans to have friends come over, and the only date they could come was the 14th, and I marked it down on the calendar without a problem. The girls swam with their friends all afternoon, and I made pleasant conversation with the other mom, and it was all okay.

I miss them a lot. But it’s okay.

For those of you who don’t know the whole story, and want to know it, here it is in three parts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. But be warned before you click. It’s a sad story, and it doesn’t end all that great.

For those of you who already know this one, just wanted to check in and tell you:

I’m okay.

    I read all three posts. Gosh, what an ordeal. I’m so sorry about the babies, and I’m glad you came though it alive yourself. It’s a miracle that you can talk (read: blog) about it at all. I’m glad that today you’re okay.

    I just found your blog through ami’s and I clicked back to read your story. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I miscarried a baby at 12 weeks and it was so devastating. What happened with your boys, though…it’s awful. Thank you for sharing your story. Here’s to putting one foot in front of the other and letting time do it’s thing. I’m glad to hear you’re doing okay.
