My Triplet Ballerinas…Gift of Triplets
My triplet ballerinas are my grand-daughters Makenna, Jaeli and Maysie.
December 24, 2007 will always hold a special place in my heart. On that day, almost 12 years ago, we found out we were going to be grandparents to triplets. Our daughter and her husband invited the whole family to their home on Christmas Eve. We knew our daughter was pregnant, we just didn’t know how many babies she was pregnant with.
When we got to their house, I was handed a card that said, “You must be so excited! Hope the time just flies and you’ll be holding that precious little one/s (the “s” was handwritten) before you know it.” Inside the card was also 2 ultrasound pictures, one at 5 weeks and one at 6 weeks. Since I am not an expert, by any means, on ultrasound pictures, I did not know what I was looking at. So, my daughter explained the 5 week one was of twins, and I thought “Oh, how wonderful!” Then, one of my other daughters looked at the 6 week ultrasound picture (below) and said, “Wait a minute, A, B & C…triplets???” I almost passed out. That day was just the beginning of the miraculous journey I would take as a grandparent of triplet girls. Beverly
