"People see God everyday, they just don't recognize Him."
One of my favorite parts about working in the clinic is getting to talk with the mothers and their little kiddos. I love how proud most of the mothers are and how much pride they take in their children. A few weeks ago I was talking to one of the mothers and at some point in the story she shared that she had three little girls that were all one year old. This mother was older than most of the mommas with little babes so I was sure that I either misunderstood her or that she worked in a children's home. I asked her over and over how old the other two children were in her home--and each time she answered that they were all born on the same day. I asked her if they were her grandchildren because then it would be possible to have three the same age- but the answer was no. I could not come up with the word for triplets so I finally said you were pregnant for twins but really had three? She laughed and said yes, she had triplet girls at the age of 39. Her other children are older and when she found out she was pregnant she had an ultrasound that revealed she was pregnant for twins. It wasn't until she delivered the "twins" that she realized she was actually pregnant for triplets. And the best part- she delivered the girls in her home up in the mountain. For the rest of the day in the clinic I couldn't stop thinking about just how much of a miracle this birth was. The fact that all three girls survived the pregnancy and delivery is a miracle--but they also made it to their first birthday. Love the testimony this mother has and the story the girls will be able to share one day- I have a feeling God has some pretty big things in store for them!
