Thanks girls We met with the social worker and neonatologist yesterday; prem babies can have a lot of problems now, and in the future-just from being so early. DH and I are taking a week to make a final decision; we need to do what's best for our family. If we want them, they are our's. Bio mom and dad saw the babies for the last time and said goodbye yesterday; if the boys don't come home to us, they'll be going home with another family likely thru the govt adoption system, the bio parents/grandparents cannot take them. All they are asking is for us to send pics and updates. We had another snuggle, we spent 30 mins with each boy and traded off-DS stayed home with the babysitter. They act/look/behave normally now, except for feeding issues, but they're still early to be eating perfectly well at 37 weeks; but who knows what's in their/our future? We've been agonizing since getting the details about what to expect yesterday at noon; we're going to Vegas tomorrow, back on Tuesday and will make a decision on what to do on Wednesday. The lawyer takes it from there if we choose, or we call the grandma and say no thank you and say goodbye to these little men. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we make the best decision for our family, and for these little boys.
Thank you

Marie you are in my thoughts and prayers! It's a tough decision, and one only you and your husband can make.
On another note have fun in Vegas!

Marie, you and DH are in my t&ps. I know it's a tough decision, but the right answer for all will come to you. Part of my prayers are that the decision comes to you soon. One preemie could be difficult, but two...... Do as much research as possible and if it's possible, check with as many preemie parents that you can find to see what their experiences have been. , Luck & Prayers, sweetie!

Try to have a good time in Vegas! Maybe you can relax enough to let the answers come to you.

Hi Marie! I am so dumb. I kept seeing comments about your journal on the chit chat page but did not realize your journal was on the board - I thought you had a blog...anyway! I just found it and read most of it. I know you and DH will make the right decision for your family. I can see where it would be a hard decision to make. I do find it very interesting though, that you've dreamed about holding three babies more than once. I think you are in tune to something very powerful that is about the happen in your life. So I am thinking those little guys will come home with you, and you'll have another one yourself. BTW, I love the names Theodore and Arthur. Much love and support to you...

Betsy

Betsy-four boys! You're scaring me, lol! We're still in Vegas, coming home tomorrow night. I have to admit, we've bought a few little preemie outfits
I'll update on Wednesday, probably.

We've decided-we are expanding our little family by two more!! The lawyer will hopefully get the paperwork signed this week, then we have a 10 day waiting period for both families to ensure they've made the right decisions. As soon as the paperwork is signed by the bio parents, we then become the babies' legal guardians, this will hopefully happen by Friday. On Saturday, we are packing up the camping trailer, and the three of us are moving down to the city where the babies are at (5 hours away), and we will stay with them until they are ready to come home in approx 3 weeks. Can you believe this??? Fourteen days ago tonight is when we first found out they even existed, OMG!!!! Little Theodore and Arthur will be coming home hopefully by the first of June, I'm going to be a mom of three boys!!!!!

NO.. I don't believe it!!!! Congratulations! While I know it's been a huge decision for you and dh, it just seems amazing that it has all happened so quickly and (seemingly) so easily, with no bumps in the road - that seems to happen so rarely. Congratulations mom of THREE!!!
