Welcome, Baby Katzen! 🍼 🐣 πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

Submitted to Surrogacy Stories

We are over the moon to see Ashley Katzen's post introducing Jonathan Lawrence Katzen to the world! πŸ’™ πŸ¦‹

"This is certainly not your traditional birth story nor was this our birth plan. We had our bags packed by 35 weeks and our flights scheduled two weeks out from our c-section date. We had been waiting and preparing for the moment to physically watch our son be born for what feels like an eternity and also like a fleeting moment in time.
Our “little” guy had TOTALLY different plans and was ready to make his debut earlier than anticipated. Not being there to provide our loving support to our surrogate and witness this miracle in person was heart breaking, but thanks to Jenna’s wonderful husband and technology we didn’t miss a beat!
We are just SO so thrilled to finally welcome our happy, healthy, and super chill dude earth side! Introducing Jonathan Lawrence Katzen, named after the two most important men in my husbands life, his late grandfather John and his beloved father Lawrence. You are ours forever, baby boyπŸ’™ πŸŒˆπŸ¦‹ #JLK"

We've been following Ashley's surrogacy journey and we're bursting with joy for her. Check out her announcement video on Instagram, @ashleykatzen. Congratulations, Katzen family! πŸŽ‰
