Order Up

Today is the culmination of the past nine months of praying, pleading, and planning. Hannah concentrates on the first one and I pick up the slack on the latter two. We make a good team. The ride to the clinic this morning was an emotional one, much like rounding the final blind corner while overdriving your headlights. We all constantly make decisions with imperfect information, but none I have encountered had the gravity of today. Any attempt at rationalizing the situation fell painfully short; I always 'supersize' my combo meals, the per-capita cost goes down for each live birth, take an inconspicuous deep breath and go 'All In'. The closest practical decision point was simply put - If in end would we be more upset with having to restart the whole process from scratch or with having triplets. It is unnerving even typing that so from now it will be referred to as XXX.

Hannah has been exceptionally strong, amazingly resiliently, and uncompromisingly diligent throughout this journey. This alone gives me the confidence to handle whatever will become, and when combined with the cornerstone support of our family it can only be viewed as a brilliant adventure.
