We had our imunization day recently, they had their first round of shots and let me tell you it was emotionally not a great experience but we know it needs to be done for the health and well being of our little ones. The first round is three needles and each needle they let out this ear peicing scream that just broke our hearts. As I look deeply into their eyes I see how upsetting this experience is for them and it was the first time I saw true tears come out of there little eyes. After it was done I held Jordyn close to my chest, rocked her, loved her and she calmed within seconds and fell fast asleep. To be able to provide that comfort to her was such a rewarding moment to know that I was able to give her what she needed to calm herself. That was one baby down, now one more to go.. Gawd we had to do it all over again, could our hearts take it....This time it was Brett with Sawyer, the exact same process and experience. I sat back and watched Brett lock eyes with Sawyer to let him know Dad was here and that he was safe. He only cried for a quick moment and then curled up into Bretts neck and fell asleep. They really did great, no fevers and they seem to have responded very well.
Brett and I were also asked to be part of the Vancouver Provinces kick of to Pride Week. Knowing the dynamic of our family we said of course we would love to be apart of this as it could connect to many couples that could see value in our story and inspire hope. It was an incredibly beautifully written article that Celebrated "Family and Community". They really focused a lot on what Chilliwack as a community is perceived as and how it has evolved far past what most would think to celebrate and welcome families like ours with open arms. We live in a beautiful community neastled in the mountains surounded by lakes. I have to say the people of Chilliwack are just as beautiful as what surrounds it.
