You can read more of the details on my blog here. Becky is the most selfless person I've ever met. Long story short, she got pregnant with our twin boys Noah and Beckom. I was excited about twins, but really really scared that something would go wrong again. We decided to keep the pregnancy top secret till she hit viability, 24 weeks. Our family/friends had no clue.
On August 22, 2015 we invited our families to come to Multnomah Falls in Oregon to have a memorial service for my son there. There, we said our last goodbyes as a family and spread his ashes. We asked our family to meet us at the base of the falls for a family picture.
Once there, we asked as "stranger" to take our picture (it was really our carrier's husband and daughter and they were filiming). He counted to 3 and out of nowhere, Becky walks into the shot. Our families are clearly confused until I turn around and say "this is our baby. This is our surrogate Becky."
Here is the reaction. This is hands down one of the best days of our lives and one of the best redemption stories we have heard of:
