What a day my family has had…
Last night my husband got a phone call from his great-aunt saying that his cousin had been killed in a car accident. I had met this man briefly 4.5 years ago at our wedding. My husband had been very close to him when they were growing up, but they had seen each other seldom since my husband moved away. My husband said that they were like brothers growing up, so this loss has been very very hard on him. His cousin had been a single dad to a 4 year old boy for the last 2.5 years. His wife had also passed away. Earlier today we got a call saying that we were listed as one of the guardians for his son - [name]Henry[/name]. There are two other couples also listed as guardians. My husband and I talked about it, and I know that he really wants to father this child. It was just a feeling that we both had, even though I never met him - my husband did when he was an infant. So my husband is actually driving there now (didn’t think he could get there faster by plane) to meet [name]Henry[/name], comfort his family and help with the arrangements. I am 8 months pregnant, and we really think (so does the doctor) that it is best that I stay here. I am just a mix of emotions! With the twins coming next month, [name]Dorothy[/name], and possibly a son?!?
I know this is a name site, but I have come to seen that you girls have had good advice. Has anyone had anything like this experience?
We won’t know probably until [name]Monday[/name], who will have custody of [name]Henry[/name], my husband wants to talk to both sides of his family, first… But it looks like [name]Dorothy[/name] may be a little sister! [name]Henry[/name] and [name]Dorothy[/name] sound like they could be brother and sister, right? What about an [name]Eloise[/name] and [name]Matilda[/name] with a [name]Henry[/name] and [name]Dorothy[/name]? I don’t know [name]Henry[/name]'s mn yet.
I think we are all still in shock.
