On December 7th, we light a candle at 5:10PM and 5:15PM in all time zones for the donor and recipient babies to create a wave of light, love, honor and hope all around the world.
As our candles are lit, we pray:
Dear Heavenly Father,
A mother's heart is pure love, filled with passion to nurture and protect the beautiful and perfect gifts from you.. her babies. From conception, new life is cherished and magnificent to behold. Upon hearing "There is more than one baby.. you are expecting twins, or triplets" an expecting mother finds a place of unparalleled joy! Every good and perfect gift comes from you, Lord.
Dear Lord, today on World TTTS Awareness Day, please drench these precious mothers of multiples and their babies in your divine protection. Their lives are forever changed by the diagnosis of twin to twin transfusion syndrome . Lord please create an intense desire by the medical community worldwide to become educated about TTTS and provide early closely monitored medical treatment. You have laid out a plan for our lives God, and you have a blueprint through The Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation to equip expecting mothers diagnosed with TTTS. We honor each mother and child who have endured TTTS and have yet to take this journey. Lord we ask that our dedication remain focused and strong until there is a cure for TTTS.
God, please help all the mothers and fathers in such deep sorrow over the loss of their babies. Please let them know that we care, their babies are so important and loved and we remember with them, and that our hands are in theirs. They are not alone.
Written by Terri Ann Boardway, The Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation Prayer Request Coordinator and mother of twins Adrianna and Sophia.

Forever Eternal, Mommy
To my Elias & Athanasios, It's now been 2 years since God took you both to Heaven. I'm sorry it's taken so long to visit where your bodies lay. It's not that I don't love you both but I have to do what I can to stay strong for your sisters. Not having you to hold & to watch you grow breaks my heart so much. I'm not complete anymore. I hope you get the kisses your sisters & I send to you every night. Please keep watching over your Daddy, Nectaria & Stamatia. Happy 2nd Birthday
Love from your very proud Mummy
