Sorry for the delay in posting the February 2023 list. The birth of our son Walter on Feb 7 kept us busy while we worked out our new normal! Eric had to catch a last-minute red-eye to Durham, NC when our gestational surrogate went into labor two weeks ahead of the planned induction date (and two days before Eric's scheduled flight, just in case). Fortunately, Eric arrived at the hospital in time to watch Walter's birth with awe. Greg and our foster son Trey met up with Eric in Durham 11 days later during Trey's winter break, and all four of us will return to Seattle on Feb 25. Home deliveries by Amazon, Walmart and DoorDash were life savers for Eric when he was alone with Walt for over a week at an AirBnB rental. Flying to Durham allowed Greg and Trey to also meet in-person our wonderful gestational surrogate Sarah, her super supportive husband John, and their two kids, and having two extra pairs of hands would make it easier for Eric to fly home with a newborn.

  1. Thank you for still doing this for us! And congratulations for the newborn!

  2. That's a pretty good reason for the delay! Welcome to the world, Walter!
