Hello friends! I have an exciting announcement that I have been dying to share.
I’ve kept it under wraps now for a long time….. 🙂

We’re expecting twins!!!!!!

12 week gestation twins faces ultrasound

The baby pics on the bottom just show the positions of the babies in the ultrasound, so the images on top are easier to make out.

Our twin babies will be delivered via gestational surrogate on June 28th 6th, 2016, God willing, via planned c-section.

We will be heading back to Mumbai again this June to be there for the delivery, and we intend to be there for 4-6 weeks again, this time to get our children’s passports and paperwork for America! Then it will be a very looong flight home with two newborns and a then-seven year old, back to Idaho 🙂

Here our twins are lying with their heads on the right side of the image, with their backs to us, folded up in the fetal position.

For those of you wondering why I won’t be able to attend the RWA National Conference this summer, or the ACFW Conference (American Christian Fiction Writers), this is my very good excuse: I’ll be bonding with my new babies! 🙂

We do not know the gender of the twins, nor will we know until they are born, per Indian law that gender detection via ultrasound is not allowed. It will be a big surprise! We’ll either have two sons, two daughters, or one son and one daughter 🙂 They’ll definitely be fraternal — that we know!

We’re praying for the health and protection of our surrogate and the babies, that we’re able to safely bring our children home, and that above all, God’s will be done.
