Through my wife, Norlisa, God gave me the greatest gift of my life two years ago today, my son and my daughter.

My wife wrote this under "Mothers of Multiples," and again, yeah, what she said:

http://www.preeclampsia.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9638

So dads, as worried as we get about our wives and children, and as scary as it may be at times; good, great things do happen. My own personal faith and entrusting my wife and children to "someone bigger," (again, my own personal opinion), and having full confidence in my wife's perinatologist and nurse were key to me.

Thank you for all the good wishes for Frankie and Sammy.

And yes, Bonnie, the office bash was a lot of fun for the kids (the "big ones in the office," and Frankie and Sammy thought that it was alright, too).

Thank you all again,
Gordon
