Once upon a time mommy and I
wished upon a distant star,
We didn't know if we'd get our wish,
the chances seemed rather far.

We asked God for a little girl
To cuddle and hold tight,
To love and squeeze and give
a gentle kiss goodnight.

Well, God was listening and the answer
came straight from the blue.
Not only did we get one little angel,
He saw fit to give us two...

As it turned out, on November 22,1990, Thanksgiving Day, As time went by, they continued to grow, always such good little children, still no trouble at all. They were always so very close! Watching out for each other, everyone said the best twins of all!! Then as they were getting so close to becoming 21 !! My son was given a motorcycle, he had always ridden dirt bikes, he was great. But never a big heavy street bike. He'd always tried to do things the right way, he signed up for lessons, but they gave him a motorcycle license before. Barely 3 weeks he had it, trying to save money and not drive the car. He was on his way to work, at a computer store, he was an Apple specialist. Not far from our house, just down the road. Still I don't understand how, but he over compensated and wrecked in a small curve. His sister and I were at home. Having no idea. My phone wasn't charged so I guess that's why they didn't call, well they did, but my phone didn't work. He had been gone, really I'm not sure how long, thought he was at work. My daughter came to my room, Mom, there is a police officer, he wants to talk to you. I couldn't imagine why, thoughts went quickly through my head, never imagining what it could be. He asked us both, my daughter and me, to step outside, we did, then he began telling us why he was there. My son had wrecked and was airlifted to Atlanta, he was in grave condition. He told us where, said we should hurry and get there. So in my sons car, my daughter drove. We got to the hospital, she dropped me off in front and went to park the car. I told them at the front desk I didn't begin crying, I think I felt that I had to be strong for my daughter, his twin sister. My son was, of course in ICU. In just a little while a nurse came and got us. She took us back to where my son was. He was just laying there. So hard to believe, that my beautiful son was quite, all he could do. Well we didn't loose him that day August 13,2011. But on August 16, 2011, he passed away.

When the doctor said they are twins both girls. I looked at him and thought he was insane. And I asked myself what was I going to do because their father lost interest the day I told him I am pregnant. Arriving at home I couldn't tell my mother they were twins I slept thinking hard. But I said with God everything will be okay as long as I am working. They were born my identical angels I loved them dearly I called their father who seemed not interested. I said to myself my mother raised me as a single mother I will raise them. My angels where there adorable loved by the community and everyone and they are grown up now eighteen their father is back. I thank God he is part of their lives. I love them they are soft, gentle humble and loving.
