The clock is now ticking… Our appointment with the US Consulate went very well and reminded us how lucky we are to be US citizens. Special thanks to Annika, the consular officer who handled our case. We are now getting ready for the next steps of our adventure: the DNA test and the exit visa for the baby (FRRO). We have been in India for 20 days and we are very eager to head back home.
Baby Chloe is doing well. She seems to be having a mild case of “blocked tear duct”. This is a very common condition with newborns. We just need to clean her eyes as part of our daily routine. Things will improve as the baby grows up.
She now makes all kind of baby noises. It sometimes sounds like she already wants to speak! ;-) And we love her so much. The best way to describe things would be to say that she has opened a door in my heart that I didn’t even know was there. She has only been with us for 11 days, but it feels like she has always been part of our Lives.

I have cried so much when I saw our little daughter for the first time. She is healthy, beautiful and she weighs 7 lbs 4 oz (3.24 kg). Everything went well and we are madly in Love with our little Chloe. She was so strong that no visit to the NICU was necessary. She was in our hospital suite within a couple of hours and we can’t take our eyes off her. One of the happiest days of our lives! We are very thankful to the surrogate mother who is now recovering and doing well.

Our surrogate mother has been admitted to the hospital. She will be induced tomorrow and the baby will be delivered via c-section. I am stressing out, even though Dr Meenakshi asked us not to worry. I don’t know if I will be able to sleep well tonight…
