Let’s be honest, when you have two boys under the age of five it’s very hard to get anything done.  Making time to accomplish everything in a day is possible if everyone’s working 2gether and on the same page. Whether it’s moms with new routines, spouses out of town, or 2gether with your family, 2Gether We Live will share anything from knowing how to work through the tantrums, to sitting down to dinner 2gether, or just being ok with the fact that the clean laundry is still in the washing machine.  By making the most of your resources, and those around you, let’s live 2gether.

 

Fairy God Mother

Some believe that everything happens for a reason, while others have a hard time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, especially if they are going through a really hard time.  I’m happy to say that I believed in and experienced the light at the end of the tunnel and it was amazing to be a part of such a miracle.

It all started 2 years ago when I introduced two friends, Kristy and Julie, who were in the same stage of infertility troubles.  I couldn’t relate, but I thought that introducing these two strangers during my annual Christmas party would give them someone to empathize with.   Not only did they hit it off, they kept in touch after the party and led parallel lives. 

Kristy and her husband, Rob, were going through the long adoption process and the thought of being matched with a mother seemed light years away.  Meanwhile, Julie and her husband, Tony, were match almost instantly.  A few months later, Kristy and Rob were matched.  The joy and excitement all came to a halt for both mommies- to- be when both matches fell through for one reason or another.  When I found out the news, I was so sad for their losses.  But, so glad that they both had each other to lean on and go through this lost together and get back on the waiting list.

Kristy was going through an agency in TX, and Julie was going through an agency in FL.  A few months went by and they were happily both matched again.  There are so many steps before adoption can completely go through but every cross road was crossed and every hurdle was jumped. 

Now, fast forward to a year after they met, and my annual Christmas party was here.  I get an unexpected decline from Julie because she was flying down to FL to be with the birth mom during delivery.  A few hours later, I get another unexpected decline from Kristy for the same reason, except she was flying to TX.  Both beautiful baby girls were born on the same day, hours apart in different states and would soon be living in good ol’ Portland, ME together. 

Kristy and Julie always call me the fairy god mother because I introduced them;  in all honesty, I feel like it was all meant to be, just like it happened.! I was so fortunate to be a part of this meant to be story!
