Journaling reads: Words cannot describe how we felt upon learning we would be the parents of twins. Mom went to the appointment alone because it was rescheduled and Dad couldn't get off of work with such short notice. Mom had suffered two miscarriages prior so we were mostly concerned if there was a heartbeat. When Dr. Schell said that there were two I couldn't believe it. This was a case of spontaneous twins so we were astonished. When I told Dad on the phone his reaction was to just start laughing.
