The Mama...

Besides the obvious, one of the best gifts we have received through this journey is our relationship with Megan.  We recently got a really great suggestion to post about what the relationship between Megan and this child will be after the birth (THANKS BOBBY).

Tony and I will be this baby’s legal parents.  Our names will be on the birth certificate and the baby will live with us.  However, it is very important to all of us that the baby knows where he or she comes from, and will be able to see Megan whenever they want.  Megan in turn will also be able to see and spoil this child whenever she wants.  We will tell the baby that Mama Megan (or whatever Megan wants to be called) grew him or her in her tummy for Daddy and Papa and that all of us loved and wanted him or her VERY much. 

We all want the baby to be able to not only have a relationship with Megan and his or her sister, but to know that he or she was wanted and loved fiercely by everyone it took to make him or her.

Megan’s daughter will be welcome in our home as if she lives there.  Megan really wants them to know each other and Tony and I agree. 


  1. That's great. This kid is going to have love coming from every direction. Wonderful.

  2. Awesome! No shortage of love to go around in that family, and that's what it's all about right?
