I've had New Dads On The Block's blog open in my browser tabs since, like, the third trimester. Now these two dads Josh & Matt have not only made it to India for the birth of their twins [mazeltov!], they've gotten through the most difficult phase of the international surrogacy process: getting approximately one million forms stamped and approved by the US Consulate and Indian government's bureaucracies.
Anyway, they're home now, back in New York City and/or Wilmington, NC; there's a bit of posting lag now as newborn twins don't really appreciate how much time it takes to maintain a blog.
But anyone in need of highly detailed, step-by-step accounts of navigating international surrogacy in general, and India in particular [where surrogacy laws recognize genetic parents, thereby simplifying the infant citizenship process] should dive into NDOTB's archives. I now feel like I could navigate you and your DNA swabs through the US Consulate's compound by Skype if I needed to.
If your interests are more along the lines of watching new dads grapple with the realities of adorable twins, then you can just start following along now.
