Beauty: times Four

This beautiful mom is Diana.  Six years ago, Diana was a busy beauty.  She had an active career with a well-known ministry that had her traveling a lot and meeting lots of new people.  Adding a baby to the family would slow her down a little, but not much!  But the Lord had other plans for Diana, and her whole world changed the day the doctor came in and told the busy couple that the one baby  was actually THREE babies…and there was a problem. 
Besides being pregnant with triplets, Diana had to learn all about monochorionic and monoamniotic twins, something that happens in less than 1% of pregnancies.  The twin girls did not have a membrane separating them, so it was likely their cords would tangle and they would die from lack of oxygen.  The doctor encouraged Diana to abort the other baby, a boy, so that the twin girls would have more room.  But Diana is a courageous and faithful beautiful girl, and she refused to sacrifice her baby boy.  She and her husband settled in to see what God’s will was for the triplets, and their faith grew.  She spent 10 weeks in the hospital and had the triplets by C-section at 32 weeks.  There’s not room in this post to tell you even a little of what Diana experienced during that time and since then….I’ll just say that Diana got more beautiful every day, and she continues to get more beautiful every day even as her children do the same.
Those little babies are almost four years old now, and they are perfect.  The girls are here with Diana and you can see how beautiful they are!  Little Logan, is beautiful, too.  And to top it all Diana added another baby a little over a year ago, the beautiful boy named Cole.  So that makes Diana Beautiful:  Times Four!
