New Scan


We have just received a new scan from Dr Meenakshi. The baby has grown a lot since our last scan; we are now 32 weeks pregnant and the baby weighs 4.4 pounds! ;-) I don’t really know how to describe how I feel as we are getting closer to becoming dads. I am probably extremely happy, very anxious and ecstatic at the same time. I didn’t know that I could experience so many emotions at the same time. We are also so grateful for all the people who are making our journey possible. Thank you.

La Girafe


Mr. T and Mrs. E (from the M Family) just gave us the most charming little toy: Sophie La Girafe. I love it, and it fits perfectly with the theme of our nursery. Thank you! ;-)

Pediatrician

We have been advised to find a pediatrician before the baby is born. Browsing through various profiles, we stumbled upon the picture of a familiar face… It turns out that one of our friends who we haven’t seen in a while is a pediatrician, and we didn’t even know it! Our first reaction was: “NO WAY”. What are the odds? This must be fate! We reached out to her and met her the day after. She told us that she would be “honored” to be our pediatrician. Life is full of surprises. ;-)

30 Weeks

We are now 30 weeks pregnant! We are using our last few weeks in order to get as ready as possible. We had our last parenting class, which was particularly important as we have learned how to perform “Infant CPR”. We are also already in the process of packing; we have to prepare ourselves in case we need to leave at a moment’s notice. We are so excited and full of emotions.

A new Life for a new chapter


Things are getting very exciting as we have just begun coordinating our last trip to India with Dr Meenakshi and our surrogacy agency (WeeCare Partners USA). As we are approaching the end of the process, it really feels like things are going exponentially faster. We still have a few weeks to get ready, and then our lives will change forever. We are getting overwhelmed with so many good emotions! ;-) A new Life for a new chapter…
