They may look like triplets....

An exerpt from my latest post for Preemie Babies 101, the parent blog for support organization, Hand to Hold.

“Oh, twins! They’re so cute!” exclaims the lady in the checkout line at the grocery store.  In a nanosecond, I have the following conversation with myself: “No, they’re not twins, they’re triplets you just can’t see the third one.  Does this lady care that one of my girls died?  Am I just going to depress her and ruin her day by bringing to the light the fact that babies die?  How do I phrase it?  Surviving triplets?  Two of my triplets?  Two of three?  How much longer will I have to stand here?  Can I just turn and run away?  If I just say ‘yes, they’re twins’, have I dishonored Zoe and confused Avery and Lily?  Do I have the energy to deal with this today?” (read more)
