"Twice the Gift"

The local TV news featured a story on our surrogacy journey. It was the headline story tonight called Twice the Gift. I think they did a nice job for a short news piece. It's so cute that at only 5 days our boys are already celebrities! :)

How wonderful to see a positive story about surrogacy for a change. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I think this is absolutely wonderful. I think for K to experience all of the "aches and pains" of pregnancy and delivery, and then not have a baby to take home, is the most unselfish thing I have ever witnessed. I truly hope that didn't come out wrong, because I mean it in the best possible way. I have so much respect for both you and K. Niki your boys are beautiful, and I think they look so much like you. Are they identical? Because in the very first pic you posted of them, I think they look exactly alike! Congratulations!

That was very well done and tell K I think she is beautiful - inside and out.

Great story! I'm glad the news station found a happy, positive surrogacy story to share with the public!
So glad K is doing well, and that the boys will be able to come home soon!
You should be getting a little package for the boys in the next few days :).
Much love to you, K, Josh, and the boys!

Such a beautiful and happy ending Niki! I sat with tears streaming down my cheeks, I have so enjoyed your story and it's helped me in our journey to see other women with similar stories to mine have their dreams come true. Thank you for sharing.

What a fabulous story! And I loved seeing everyone in video :).
Thanks so much for sharing, I have sent the link to Mr.Duck so he can show his parents this weekend when he does the big reveal (Having a nice surrogacy story to read will help!).

They are beautiful what a wonderful uplifting story to warm anyone and everyone! What lucky little boys to be so loved and how lucky you get to be the ones that love them. Thanks for the happy tears.

Twinmama said...

Hi Niki...I have never commented but have been following your blog for quite some time. I am so happy for you! Your boys are too adorable for words.

I also just realized that you are in the same area as I am and wanted to invite you to join a mulitples club that has been started in the area. I know that you are probably way too busy for that now but in the future it may be nice to have some other twin mamas to share with. The group isn't very active yet but hopefully when summer comes around we will be doing more.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with your boys! Cherish every moment it goes by so fast!

Oh my gosh!!! You are all beautiful. I am glad they mentioned Myles, too. You now have 3 little boys, 2 here and one sweet angel watching over you all. :)

I had no idea you are in Eau Claire! I am originally from La Crosse. Small world. :)

Take care!!

I watched the video and was in tears. I'm so happy for you guys. K is absolutely wonderful. I hope to one day have my sister be my surrogate she offered just like K did for you.

Dora said...

So beautiful! It brought tears to my eyes to see you so happy. K rocks!

Anxious Mommy said...

What a gorgeous family and a wonderful story!

Saffy said...

Not many babies make the news at such a young age!! And what a nice news story - a real warm fuzzies piece :) The boys are looking gorgeous. I hope K's recovering nicely too.

Brie said...

I hope you don't mind, but I had to repost it on my blog because it is such a wonderful wonderful story and I want to share the joy and bring awareness to surrogacy as an option. Your story is inspiring..and although I wish you never had to go through the trials and tribulations and loss of Myles, I love that you soldiered on to reach your rainbow.

Alicia and Mike said...

Niki, here is the link you were looking for, I posted the video on my blog :) So happy for you.
