Happy Birthday Silas & Liam




Liam Douglas and Silas Robert entered the world today at 1:21 and 1:23pm, respectively. Silas measured 5lbs 5oz, 18.5 in and Liam measured 5lbs 6oz, 18 in. Both boys are in the special care nursery, but are doing well on room air.




K is recovering well from the c-section. She was already up and walking around by 4:30pm and met the boys for the first time around 5pm. K really is a true ROCK STAR!! J and I are so in love and can't even begin to thank K enough for these two precious gifts. We are so very blessed!

amy said...

Niki,

I am beyond thrilled for you and for K and for your very happy ending (or beginning, as the case may be). I have read your blog daily for over a year and have never before written. This is actually my first time ever writing on a blog...

I want you to know though that you have given me the strength to take my friend "J" up on her offer to grow us our baby and she is due July 7th. We will learn Tuesday if we are having a son or daughter. (Can't wait!)

You should be SO proud of yourself for never giving up on your dreams and for inspiring others like me to never give up on ours. K, you should be SO proud of yourself too, as you absolutely are an angel on earth. I am VERY proud of you too!!! May all of you live happily ever after! I'm sure you will. :)

Love,

Amy

Jane said...

It is cool that there is a possibility to bring up the own kid. Thanks to the surrogacy more couple has become happy of being parents.

Lucky said...

My congratulations! Let she grows healthy! Thank you for sharing your experiences of the surrogate motherhood! For me, as a person who faced the same problem the only way to have my own child was the surrogacy. I'm from Canada, but the cost of the treatment in America is too big for my family .
