  3. Wow. This is the first I’ve read this and I just wanted to commend you and your wife on the amazing strength you both must have had to get through all of this. What an awesome gift for your son to have this blog to look back on when he’s older and see just how badly he was wanted and everything his mamas did to bring him into the world! πŸ™‚
