Skip to comments.Announcing Birth of Our Twin Boys (Vanity)
Posted on 05/07/2011 6:56:50 AM PDT by Jim from C-Town
I would like to announce the birth of our third and fourth sons Nicholas Paul Roth & Charles Joseph Roth @ 1:01 & 1:02pm respectively on May 6, 2011. The boys are Identical twins born to James & Catherine Roth via cesarian section at Fairview Hospital in Cleveland, OH. They are two months early and will be in the NICU for the next two to four weeks.
As many of you will recall, my wife and I lost our second son Douglas Charles Roth to heart problems and CHARGE related Complex on October 1, 2010.
We believe that the boys are a gift from God with a little help from our own personal saint Douglas. We ask that all at FreeRepuplic say a prayer for the boys as they are premature.
They are in good health considering that they where only 31 1/2 weeks at delivery. They are breathing on their own without oxygen and they are expected to have no cmplications.
Never the less we are concerned, particularly after our experiences with Douglas.
CONGRATS! I am VERY happy for you!
Good luck and may God bless!
Congratulations and prayers too.
Enjoy your precious babies.
Before you know it they’ll be asking for the car keys.
Congrats and my family will be praying.
What hath God Roth?
Congratulations! Breathing on their own is a great sign.
Congratulations to you & your wife! I’ll be praying for your precious little ones!
Say goodbye to sleep for awhile. I suggest you research “Preparation for Parenting” by Gary and Ann Marie Ezzo. My first was sleeping 8 hours straight at night after 25 days and my second after 31 days because of this program.
Congratulations on the birth of your precious baby boys!
Prayers sent that they will stay strong and healthy and live long and blessed lives!
Congratulations. Babies are truly a gift from God, and he has blessed you with two of them! Prayers for their good health and rich lives filled with love and happiness.
Congratulations and blessings from another twin.
Will keep your babies in my prayers.
Congratulations!! and All the Best
CONGRATULATIONS and prayers sent for your double-blessings and for you and family.
God Bless and congratulations! It’s good to see people fighting Islamocommunism.
May you experience many sleepless nights taking care of both of them! :)
Heartfelt congratulations. My B-G twins are 9. Twins are challenging the first year, but then it gets sooooooo much easier than even a single. Enjoy every minute! What a great blessing.
Best wishes for your double blessing...
Happy Mother’s Day, Happy Mother’s Day - to your wife.
Blessings and a long life of happiness for you and your growing family! :)
Being a preemie myself, I can say that if they are breathing on their own, that is a great sign. They seem to be a good size for their length of term. Congratulations to you and your wife. Our elder son was born eighteen years ago, tomorrow. It makes Mother’s Day very special.
Prayers up for you and your family.
Congratulations! God has truly blessed you! My first son was born at 31 weeks weighing 2 lb 2 oz. He was on oxygen his first night and then on a CPAP for another week. Thankfully although he was tiny, there was nothing else wrong with him and he just hung out in the NICU for 48 days getting bigger and stronger. Your two little precious boys will be in the best hands and they’ll be just fine! Those NICU folks are angels! Regardless, I’ll be praying for your family.
Congrats and prayers up!
When you get a chance, post photos!
Of course, that’ll probably be about this time next year. :-)
Congratulations. I was a NICU baby. Healthy and old now. :-) God willing, your boys will be able to say the same someday. You and your sons will be in my prayers.
Have twelve year old twin boys myself. You ain’t lived until you’ve been through the challenges of raising twin boys.
God bless you, your wife and your family.
I am so happy for you and your wife! I will definitely say prayers for your family. I hope your wife is fine. From my understanding, a C section takes longer to heal from. I hope she is feeling great and on her feet in no time. I understand your fear especially after the tragedy of little Douglas. May Our Lord give you strength and courage. May His Presence be felt by your family.
As a tax preparer I can tell you that you kid's Social Security numbers will be inscribed on the birth certificate and their cards may also be attached. Keep these in a safe place since identity thieves would love to purloin those numbers.
I always suggest that my customers might go to a Dollar store and buy wallet picture holders to protect the SSI card since it is illegal to laminate the card!
Hugs and kisses for the Mother who has a twin blessing tomorrow!
Congrats x 2! Parents are always concerned. That’s part of the job. But your sons have good weights and should be fine. Prayers up for their growth! Welcome, little freeper boys!
I have brothers who are identical twins. Those stories you may have heard about identical twins having an odd ability to connect to each other even though they're miles apart -- in the case of my bros, I can tell you, such stories are true. I have witnessed it first-hand too often. My dad had been a thorough skeptic as a young father; by the time I was in my teens, he had a saying about my twin bros, and he always says it with a rueful shake of the head: one of them eats the prunes, the other one spits out the seeds. More than 60 years later, my dad is still mystified by something he never thought he'd believe, but reality forced his hand!
My thoughts: Your boys have a tremendous amount of love between them as well as for the rest of their family, and in a way, bring double the blessings of love. I'm happy for your family!
Congrats on your blessed event. Tell your wife “GREAT JOB”!
In our prayers.
Congrats! All the best!
“kid’s Social Security numbers will be inscribed on the birth certificate”
Well, by all means, mask the SSN’s, but if you post their long-form BC’s on-line, we’ll be happy to consider either of the twins as eligible to become POTUS starting in 2048...
:)They are a gift Jim.Congrats and post some pics when you can.We will be praying.(((((Hugs)))))Fatima
What a Mother’s Day gift, indeed. Congrats to both of you.
May God’s mercy surround your family in these coming weeks.
Congrats & prayers!
Congrats to you and the Mrs. on your newest Blessings.
Congratulations, Roth family!
Be sure to let us know when they come home so we can all rejoice with you!
(and a few pics of the little darlin’s would be nice, too.)
God Bless you guys. Best of everything to your family, Jim.
Pictures, we need pictures. Congrats to Mom, Dad and the rest of the family.
I once read that a baby starts sleeping through the night when they reach around 11 pounds. You have a long way to go but you’ll live through it.
God bless the wee ones and keep them safe and strong.
Give the babies a gentle cuddle from near Columbus please~
Congrats on the new arrivals.
Congratulations!!! A gift from God, no doubt.
Prayers for your family.
