Happy Mother's Day

Here's a great story for Mother's Day. This is a true story, printed in our local paper. A mother, 39 years old gave birth to identical twins 3 years after having a tubal ligation. It was a first pregnancy for her. She made the decision to have her tubes tied because her OB said she was too great of a risk to take oral contraceptives. She and her husband got married later in life and decided they waited too long for children and were okay not having children. Somehow, one egg made it to her uterus, was fertilized and then split. The babies, born 8 weeks early are healthy and doing well, and mom and dad are absolutely thrilled. Talk about divine intervention right there. Happy Mother's Day!!
