Meeting Clairvaux

They have waited over 8 months to meet you. One of my best hospital memories this time is seeing your siblings burst through the door to see you. My only regret is that I wasn't videotaping their faces as they walked through the door. We will do that next time! I remember going to visit my mother when she had a new baby. There was nothing better and my heart still beats fast as I remember walking through the hospital door to lay my eyes and hands on my new sibling. What a beautiful gift to give to your children. I had bought a gift to give to each child from Clairvaux, but forgot them at home. I made the girls each a charm bracelet with their initial and a baby charm. Clairvaux gave Dominic a little lego set. I'll have her give their gift to them at her baptism.
