Big fat photo dump -- Part 2

Clara cleared for release!

Olivia's excitement didn't last long
Yep, that's all of 'em!

Clara says "hmmm..."
Papá and Clara
"I like this thing called 'bath'"
Why do you keep pointing that thing at me?
Being naked is fun!

  1. Many congratulations ,on the birth of your girls they are gorgeous , can you post some information ,on some of the thing you took with you for them ,which hotel you stayed in , what kinda visa did you apply for to go to India ...I'm in my 19 week so I'm just trying to get some idea about what I need to be prepare for thank you so much ...

    1. We're staying at Svelte (http://www.svelte.in/), which is pricey (if you have lots of frequent flier miles, check to see if your airline allows you to use them to pay for hotel rooms and if they have a deal with Svelte -- most of our stay here is free), but is attached to City Select, one of Delhi's largest malls. There are several supermarkets and baby stores there, which are lifesavers if you run out of something or didn't want to pack everything. Not sure where you're from, but check with your embassy regarding how long it will take to get citizenship for your baby.

      We're here on a tourist visa, like almost everyone who comes for surrogacy. It's simpler, and though I've heard you theoretically could have problems if you're caught, medical visas come with their own problems.

      Good luck!

  2. Now I know I am missing some great photos in Part 1! The girls are adorable! As are the pair of you! One big happy family!

  3. Great photos and I'm so glad to see you all together. That last photo is perfect!
