Six Weeks Until Babies
It's official. If the babies haven't arrived before this date, then Monday, March 21 is the date our surrogate, Morgan, will be induced. It's THE birthday! That will put the twins at 37 weeks and 2 days. The journey to fatherhood has been full of surprises, but I would be surprised if they arrive before Monday, March 21; Morgan's body is happy pregnant. On Friday our son was at 4 lbs. 4 oz. and our daughter was at 3 lbs. 15 oz., which puts my son's and daughter's weight ahead of most singleton pregnancies at this same stage. Morgan knows how to nurture and grow babies. It's wonderful.
On Saturday my parents came down to our house for a visit before they returned to their New Mexico house. As they were departing I realized that the next time I will see my parents we will have babies in our arms. It was an exciting and strange feeling.
So after years of saving, years of planning, and a year of working with an agency fatherhood is finally within reach. Six weeks. Or less. Fatherhood is upon us.
