You just made commitment comforting ❤️ @dirrty99 @officialhumansofbombay @i_ivin “I grew up with the same notion that family comes first. When I met my wife, and things got serious -- I knew I wanted to have a family with her… that’s something we both looked forward to.
Because of our hectic lives, we planned on having children through surrogacy. But in the meantime, when we visited St. Catherine’s orphanage, which housed around 300 children -- we thought ‘why not adopt?’ There are a lot of children out there that need a home. They explained to us the process, and we decided to go for it -- it was complicated. At one point, we thought we weren’t going to get her. There was a short time span when it broke our hearts -- it was a hard process emotionally and with the paperwork. But then, last year, when I was LA, going in for the surrogacy transfer is when I got the email by the government saying we’ve matched! Nisha was going to be our daughter! We were ecstatic! We prepared everything to go and bring her home.
That’s when I met my daughter for the first time. But it wasn’t like love at first sight. I was nervous in that situation. Doubts like ‘will I be a good enough father?’ or ‘will she ever connect with me?’ kept creeping up. It took about a month, but one day -- I walked in through the door, and she screamed ‘papa!’ running to me and grabbing my leg. I started crying -- that day my daughter finally recognized me as her father and I was the happiest. Since then on, we just have this funny connection -- I couldn’t go anywhere without her and she too became a papa fan. Even Sunny kept saying ‘it’s always papa papa.’ Making me secretly very happy.
Asher and Noah, our twins also finally came into our lives, and now I feel like my family is complete! I can do anything for them -- From waking up each morning and cooking everyone in the house breakfast to waking up in the middle of the night to make sure my babies are okay -- my world revolves around them.
And you know what’s funny? I never actually thought I’ll see my father in me someday-- you know, you want to be the ‘cooler’ parent and never want to be the ‘old one’ who is out of touch, like your parents wer
