In late 2010, Adam and Michelle Neal of Vero Beach, Fla., learned they were expecting their first child. At their first ultrasound, the technician muttered "Oh" as soon as the wand was placed on the stomach. Immediate panic struck the couple until the technician said the most amazing two words, "There's two."
From that point on Adam and Michelle's lives would never be the same. There was never a time where the couple felt anything but being blessed. However, they quickly found their pregnancy and birth experience were nearly nothing like those of their single-birth friends.
There were multiple times where the couple would have loved to turn to others who've shared the same experience. Unfortunately, no such group existed. During the first six months of their precious twin daughters' lives, more and more questions popped up that single-birth families couldn't answer such as the best way to feeding both at once, keeping them on the same schedule and finding time to sleep in between both sleep schedules.
They noticed twin parents tend to gravitate toward each other in stores, restaurants and other public places. They searched the internet for such a local group to no avail. Alas, their brainchild Treasure Coast Twins was born. Taking the Bible's "If you build it, they will come" preaching to heart, they hope this group can bring together other families from across Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties.
