When a couple living in New Zealand decided to plan a big surprise, it meant that they would have to fly around the world with twins. Though getting the family together again wasn't going to be easy, they valued the time together and knew it would be worth it. Packing up their bags, they set out to the States with their precious babies.
One could only imagine the anxious feeling of traveling with two little ones for such a long distance, but the reward of having them meet their grandma for the first time once they arrived kept them going, all the way to that bright red front door in St. Lois, Missouri. The only thing missing was knowing just how grandma would take such a big surprise. They were about to find out!
The journey across the globe took a long 17 hours, yet the couple had their focus on the big surprise. This was going to be not just a special surprise either, but something that would mark the family history.
This loving family had not had a baby girl born in the family for an entire 54 years! All the babies that were born over the course of over 50 years, and not a single girl - until now! This couple had the sweetest blessing of welcoming two baby girls into the world. The first two girls born in a very long time. They couldn't wait to spend time together again with their precious girls. When they finally arrived, they knocked on the door with hearts racing faster than ever.
Though the couple was willing to travel the distance with their twins, they were also able to share the miracle of their two beautiful, healthy baby girls. This was something they didn't want to miss out on. Keeping a secret like this was not easy, but they wanted the surprise for everyone to cherish forever. Parents will often make sacrifices for their children whether big or small, but this was one had to be the happiest ones of all.
Grandma was in for it the moment she opened the door and saw big smiling faces stare back at her from the twins she had never met before and the very anxious parents holding them. The couple had no idea how she would react, but the way that she did had to flood their heart with the strongest emotions.
