|Little Sophia, beautiful in death. St.Therese, the patron saint of Baby Therese.|

Lately, I've thought about Kirk and his wife these past few days, wondering if they had their babies yet, wondering if all went well. I kept thinking to myself that I would muster up the courage to email them and ask for myself, but then I would chicken out, feeling like I was intruding. And not to mention my biggest fear: that something went wrong. The sad picture of Sophia was always in my mind.
Finally, just tonight as I was going to bed, I decided I would email Kirk and his wife. The worst that could happen is that they wouldn't answer me. And what to my happy surprise to find an email from Kirk! And even more happier, that this is what he said:
It is a great pleasure to send this email update to you. Tania and I have returned home from St. Elizabeth hospital with two new additions to our family. Little Gianna Marie and Therese Bernadette are home, safe and sound, thanks be to God. Little Gianna looks very much like her older sister Sophia. She is a feisty little girl. Her sister Therese is a bit more laid back and has her mother's beautiful looks.
Both mommy and the ladies are doing well. Thank you again for all of your prayers. We could certainly feel the Holy Spirit surrounding us and sustaining us.
If you have the time Tania and I would appreciate it if you could thank all of the prayer warriors that follow your blog for us as well. I have provided a picture that you could use.
It was a wonderful surprise and a great favor from God to hear this happy news! I have not prayed every day, but when I thought of them, please Lord, let them keep these children this time.
We had all prayed that God would bring these babies safe into their Mother's arms. And He has. :-) Congratulations Kirk and Tania, your babies and your faith are an inspiration to us!
