Double Blessings

I am thinking it will only be a matter of days before I will have news that we will get to go for a visit to meet the twins we hope will be joining our family soon. Another brother and to my girls delight a sister too! We will have a very full house, full of children and extra full of love. We have been exploring the idea that we will soon need to make an extension onto the house, including a sensory/therapy/equipment room and a bedroom w/ an en suite bathroom to accomodate Ethan and Andre's needs ie. roll in shower, and special toilet because they are both at an age where they are going to go through tremendous growth spurts and I don't need to damage my back with continuous transfers from wheelchair to bath etc. Good thing we have a huge lot and plenty of room to add on!!!!
