In any case, it is a joy to meet these fellow quad mamas. It's also a joy to meet moms that are pregnant with quads. We've come into contact with a few here in town, either living locally or "visiting" AZ for the quad-experienced doctors and hospital. We met with Kami C and her husband a LONG time ago, when she was about 12 or 13 weeks pregnant. We were able to share our experience caring for (and for me, carrying and delivering) quadruplets. She recently delivered her quads, 3 girls and 1 boy, nearly a week ago! Then, just last Monday we met with Dafna, a mom carrying 3 boys and 1 girl, and her husband to show them around our "life with quads." That was fun! Then again just today, we met with Kami L, carrying 3 boys (identical!) and 1 girl, and her husband, again to show them around our quad abode. Scripture talks about us sharing the comfort that we have received from God with others...
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."(2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
So we feel it a blessing that 1) God gave us these four precious babies to care for and love but also that 2) we can share what we have gone through in having these little girls. Just like God said!
As a side note, I thought I'd mention something funny and only a "God-thing." Reading about Kami L's quad pregnancy I thought "hm...how far along is she? wait! i think she might be where i was a year ago!" As it turns out, yes Kami's due date is 4/26/09, exactly like mine (4/26/08) just a year later. Ha! So funny! So she and I have something else in common there :)
Thank you mamas for your walk in this parenting life with quadruplets! And thank you to the pregnant quad mamas that we can share and encourage you with what God has taught and brought us through!
