Can you believe it?? We made it!

We made it through eighty-nine days of the NICU roller coaster. We are finally done visiting our newborn sons and we can finally be together as a family. I'm proud to say that We Are Okay. I didn't think I would ever say that as this journey seemed to last a lifetime. God has watched over us through this entire experience. What would we do without him by our side? He has worked miracles, he has healed our babies, and he has comforted us through it all. I cannot imagine how much joy he will bring to our lives in the next few days. We finally get to be a normal family living in our own home tomorrow. We are extremely excited to bring the boys home as healthy little babies. Luke is now over seven pounds and Carter is almost weighing eight pounds. Tonight, we will stay at the hospital and the babies will be with us in the room. They will not have anything attached to them tonight as that is the way they will be coming home. Yes, you read that correct. All the worries we had about bringing them home on oxygen and a nasal cannula is out the window! The boys will sleep tonight with no monitors, no tubes, no wires and there will be nothing helping them breathe. We no longer have to hop over chords and IV poles. We get to take home two healthy little babies. We cannot wait to hold, kiss and love on them unconditionally. Did I mention Hold? Yes, I don't think I will put either of them down. Sean will have to fight me for a baby. Tears of Joy! This is the best feeling in the world! Hallelujah.

From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate the help, support, prayers, cards, gifts and all of the kind words you have all sent our way. We have had so much support through this roller coaster and we probably could not have done it without all of the specials prayers. As of today, we've had over 11,000 views on our blog so Thank You, Thank You for following our journey. We will continue to update the blog of Carter and Luke's progress as they continue to grow.

Much Love,
The Coffey's

The boys.

The nursery at home is all ready for their arrival.

Thanks Aunt Angie!!
