GiFT Twins turn 9 years old!
We are growing up to be the most amazing girls ever! We love being cheerleaders…GOOO Irish!!
We've come a long way from the NICU and are growing up fast. We are reading, learning Spanish, and doing all the things 7 year-old-girls love to do. We start 2nd grade next week!
We keep growing and learning! It's awesome when your BFF is also your twin sister :)
We spent the first three months of our lives in the NICU. We're turning 5 soon and we love being part of the GiFT family :)
Here we are on our first day of school. We absolutely LOVE going to school because we're very smart :) We can sing ABC's, count from 1 to 10, and we know all the shapes and colors. Our Mom says we have definitely come a long way!
We've come a long way, we each weighed about two pounds when we were born and stayed in the NICU for the first three months of our lives. It was a difficult time for our family but now, we're stylish and sweet (nearly) 3-year-old girls! We can't wait to start school in August this year.
Yep, that's right, we're about to turn two years old and we LOVE to play at the park!
Here are a few highlights from GiFT's exclusive photo shoot with Destination Home Family #2 in February of 2013! These girls are making lots of progress.
"I learned how to walk! Mom says I can help my sister learn to walk too, as soon as she gets her leg brace. I can't wait until we're running around together!"
Our Mom said “GiFT was a true blessing. I am now a lifetime supporter of GiFT, and everything they stand for.”
August 27, 2011: After spending the first 3 months of our lives in the hospital, we’re finally home!!!!
August 26, 2011: We are doing great, growing big & strong! We don’t need help from a breathing machine anymore & we’ve both reached the 4 pound mark. Now, we are learning how to eat with a bottle...yum!
August 9, 2011:
Hi! We’re twin sisters and we were born 3 1/2 months early! We’ve been on 2 ambulance rides together and get to share a room at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. Since we were born so early, our lungs are not fully developed. We’ve been breathing on our own some but right now we need a special machine that helps us; the doctors say it’s normal to need help with our breathing at our age; so we are just trying to get bigger. Even though we each weigh almost 3 pounds, our Mom says we need to grow some more before coming home.
