My IVF Success Stories
Wow, things have been wonderfully busy! After only 2 days we were able to take our babies home from the hospital! We have rented a condo near the hospital in Panama, to stay with the twins while we get all the needed documents in order. We thought to hire a nurse to help care for the infants for the first few weeks, which is turning out to be extremely helpful. It would not be easy running from government building to government building trying to carry two infants…nor would I feel comfortable bringing them into the death-trap cabs around the area!
Documentations in Panama are so interesting. Everything is still handwritten and sealed and stamped in all sorts of ways, plus notaries are a lot harder to get than in the US. Luckily the couples who’ve come before us paved the way a bit; the hospital now has direct access to an attorney in Panama who could deal with the documents that we needed. We are also making sure to get a document signed by the surrogate, with an emigration judge’s seal, before traveling back to the US. We went all documents to be clear for immigration at the airport.
