My husband was overjoyed. He had wanted children since before we were married. After 8 years of trying, we were extremely happy to be able to adopt a newborn baby girl through a surrogate. We were both in the delivery room, and tears were flowing. We stayed with her until she was released, and my husband insisted that we take her (yes, a 24 hour old baby!) to his office where he’d worked 20 years to show her off to his friends. Only then could we take her home. So to say he was proud would have been an understatement!! He’s just as proud of that 5’8” beautiful 13 year girl today!
