I am Heidi, the proud to stay at home mom of these five wonderful and intensly headspinning little children . I am also the wife to Brandon also known as Big B. He is my rock and to the kids, he is their hero. He can create, build, shoot, tie, fix, and invent just about everything and anything they ask him to. This isn't your typical family of seven but whatis typical about a family of seven anyway?! We had our five children in five years. Braden first with Grace close behind 14 months later. The third pregnancy brought about our twins Carsen and Cierra. They are the initial reason for this blog. They would be, in part considered two of the "too many to countmiracles" we have been given thus far in our lives. They were born at 25 weeks weighing 1'8oz and 1'10oz back in April of 2008. Our twin daughter came home after living just under a hundred days in the NICU. Our son ended up coming home about a month later. He was home with us for about a week when he stopped breathing. He was sent back to the NICU for another week before finally coming home for good. What happened during those days, weeks, and months, the ups and downs, that we all endured during that time, are all a part of our, "too many to count miracles". And last but not least, the baby, Kyan. We learned about him when the twins were six months old and had only been home two and three months. He is a miracle truly blessed upon me. I did not think I could handle one more thing in my life at that time. Especially another baby! I was sure that somehow, someone had made a big mistake. To me that someone was the man upstairs. Boy, I have never been more wrong in my life! There was no such mistake! This was the best, most perfect, most compassionate gift I could have been given at that time. Don't ever second guess the man upstairs. I have learned that through the "miracles" we experienced while in the NICU and ever since!
This blog contains many of those miracles and many more that I believe we will and do experience everyday, big and small. But most of all, the miracles that are my five wonderful, beautiful children and their most lucky and grateful mother and father.
