“Our family is truly blessed, and just so thankful, to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret. No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier.” – the happy couple on the new addition to their family.
“The hardest part is turning my clock around. Out there on the road, if we’re playing the show at a 8:45 … and we finish at 11 p.m., I don’t want that to feel like it’s the end of my day physically. I want to kind of feel closer to the middle, which means you have to go to bed at 2 in the morning. When I get home if I go to bed at 2 in the morning, it’s pretty hard getting up at 6, but I don’t want to get up at 10 and miss all the morning with my wife and my daughters. So, I just push through. If I get home at 2, I’ll get up at 6 and have breakfast with everybody and then I’ll sneak back to bed for an hour or so … my wife will work out, I’ll go back to bed.” – devoted daddy Keith on balancing a busy work schedule with fatherhood.
“Having given birth and then being there to see my child born in that way, I felt so much love for our surrogate, gestational carrier. Anyone that’s been in the place of wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss you go through. Struggling with fertility is such a big thing and it’s not something that I would run away from talking about. We were in a place of desperately wanting another child and I couldn’t get pregnant. I get emotional just talking about it, because I’m so grateful.” – Nicole on her appreciation and love for her gestational carrier.
