Announcing Birth of Our Twin Boys (Vanity)
05-07-2011 | Jimfromctown

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.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2600641/posts?page=1

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.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: congrats; sweetlittleones; twins
Nicholas is 3# 8oz & 15" long Charles is 3# 3oz & 15 3/4" long

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.

Thnk you

Before you know it they’ll be asking for the car keys.

Congratulations!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Congrats!

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!

God bless you and yours -- idential twins! Hallelujah! Congrats to all in your family, and may God bless you all with good health and much love.

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!

“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...

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.
