In light of World Prematurity Day, I have some photos I would like to share involving my beautiful twin girls. They were born at 25 weeks gestation. 

The top left and bottom right pictures are of myself holding my daughter Aurora for the first time, the day before her heart surgery. The bottom left and top right are of myself and my daughter Raven, on 2 separate days. They were both less than 3 weeks old in these pictures. I think they were just over 2lbs.

I will never forget the day they were born. I was so unprepared for what came the following few months. I guess you’re never really prepared, no matter how much time in advance they tell you. Until you go through it, you don’t really know what to do.
