“Baby Tisters”

Annika got to see Lucy and Elise for the first time on the day they were born, but only from a distance. Later, when the girls moved into a room where the healthier babies stay we felt comfortable letting her get a little bit closer, but we still made her keep her distance. Yesterday we felt the babies were healthy enough to really be able to meet their big sister. Annika loves them to death and constantly asks “Annika see baby tisters too?” She was gentle and sweet and full of love. I hope that she treats them that way forever.
