God Works In Mysterious Ways
by Helena Frisco
My name is Helena Frisco, I am 26 years old and my Husband is Joseph Frisco, he is 31. This is our twin story...
I met my husband 6 years ago. He had just spent the year prior battling Lymphoma. We started dating and, soon after, had the inevitable "How many kids do you want talk", not knowing if we were going to have problems conceiving even if we did decide to have children due to the extreme chemotherapy my husband had to go through. My husband told me that there was one wish he had when it came to having children. He said, he was the youngest child of four kids and the only boy. Growing up he watched his friends play with their brothers and envied their relationships. He said, if there is one thing he could wish for it would be twin boys so they could have each other as best friends. I told him, knowing that I have no history of twins in my family, that if we ever had a boy we would try right away to hopefully have 2 boys very close in age.
We tried for over a year and a half to have a baby and FINALLY I was pregnant. Boy, girl it didn't matter, we were finally going to have a baby.
The day after my husband's birthday (June 18, 2008) I felt like something was wrong and I went to the doctor. My doctor let me know I was perfectly fine, 8 weeks along and told me to ease my worries she could do an ultrasound so I could see my baby for the first time. I, of course, said yes and she showed me the screen and said "there's one babie's heart beat and there is the other"...time stood still. I was asking how can that be and kept telling her it's not possible. She informed me that they were more than likely identical. I was so happy I called my husband right away and I think it took that whole week to recover from the shock. At the end of August we went to do our ultrasound and determine the sex of our babies. Sure enough, we found out they were boys!! My husband's dream is coming true and, knowing that, so are mine. Tyler and Tanner are expected to arrive in a few weeks and we couldn't be happier!
