Where are you folks headed?,’ he asked. ‘We’re going to the NICU to see our son!,’ Jarvis said proudly. We literally became parents overnight. Families DON’T have to match! They are built on LOVE!”

I’m pregnant.’ The next week was a daze of my parents trying figure out what to do while I tried to keep food down.”
