Surrogate



 

 

 

 

 

I took pictures of these precious children last week.


They belong to my best friend Sarah.


I took the pictures in front of the barn at my other best friend's house.
I was sad, but we had fun.


I've known Sarah since we both got preggers with our boys, Benji and Noah
(Noah's 6, and Benji's 6 in a few weeks)


We didn't really connect until after the boys were born, but since then we've been as tight as
peanut butter and jelly!


We stuck to our guns when Benji and Noah went through the
"I'm two and I don't share" phase,
and it paid off.
Noah and Benji are best friends now, too.


Our friendship has weathered job losses, another baby, summers and school years, parents moving, a very long mission trip, sickness and more sickness,
nursing school and home school.


Through each change, we've changed and shifted,
always making time for each other,
making time for our kids to play.


Ava is like a little sister to Sarah's daughter Mia.
Alec looks up to Nate, Sarah's oldest


Our husbands are friends


I love her mom and dad


I love her kids like they're mine


We know everything (maybe too much!) about each other


This is a friendship I cherish


{Sarah, I can't wait to see what your nurse says about you when you get old!}
