Connie Jackson and her husband Travis enjoyed their first Mothers' Day on Sunday after 23 years of waiting.
The Jacksons were unable to have children of their own and were unsuccessful in adopting five different times.
Then in August of 2011 Connie's prayers were answered.
The Jacksons were attempting adopt one child when they found out there would be twins.
Connie was there the day both boys were born and was the first person to hold Nathan and Noah Jackson.
Eight months later Connie says she feels the anxiety at times that all new mothers feel but says she has a deeper appreciation for every little thing her boys do because of how long she waited.
She says this was one of the first Mothers' Days she was happy, and says next to hearing both boys cry for the first time, it was the most exciting day of her life.
