The post said, "On August 30th, we were blessed with our guiding star. This is the single most important part of everything we’ll ever narrate.

But this wasn’t easy. Every time we thought we were there, turned out we still had to keep going. And then a little more. We did well to never run out of faith in our hearts. It was the unshakeable kind.  Eventually, our desire to be parents beat every adversary, every hurdle. We know a thing or two about winning.  We’re here now, the three of us.

And we thank all of you from the depths our hearts.  We’ve taken our time with this. But the day we named him seemed like a good one to make introductions. World, this is our son, DHRUV."
