If you read my recent post with photos of the two pregnancies, you know that Griselda was our surrogate and that Griselda, Peter and their children will always be part of our family. We had a wonderful time when they recently joined us at our house for a get together. They played with the Sugar Snaps. Our children played together and we had lunch on this wonderful afternoon.
The Sugar Snaps enjoyed the generous gifts of a colorful tunnel and balls.
Darla opened up her sidewalk chalk and slushy maker.
Capri was in awe of the beautiful dresses from Griselda’s family.
Their daughter Darla is a delight
and their son Noah is so sweet and a joy to be around.
The Sugar Snaps posed with Peter, Griselda, Darla and Noah for a group photo.
We feel so lucky to have an ongoing relationship with Griselda, Peter and their children. They are truly wonderful people. During the pregnancy, when we were told that we might lose baby C (Ryder), it was Peter who had confidence that his prayers would be answered and knew that Ryder was going to be all right. Griselda nurtured our boys every day of her pregnancy and provided breast milk for six months so that their immune systems would have an extra boost. We will never be able to express our gratitude as strongly as we feel it. Do you have relationships in your life for which you feel a deep level of gratitude? I’d love to read your stories. Feel free to share your stories in the comments or leave links to your posts about gratitude or meaningful relationships.
