  • The last one, yes. He was in Iraq. The OR staff let me try to talk on my cell phone so he could hear him being born.

  • YES he did w/our 1ST, he was a Marine stationed in Ten.n & couldn't get a leave & I was in De. He didn't see our son until he was 6 weeks old, but I sent some naked pictures so he could show all his buddies he had a son. I cried every time I talked to him on the phone I felt so bad for him. He was in the delivery room w/ # 2 & 3 and we both were so happy about that.
