Children, not choices.

Julian and Aria were conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the fall of 2014. We found a surrogate, who was successful on our first attempt. We soon discovered we were blessed with twins! One baby boy, who we named Julian Griffin Ashker, and one baby girl, who we named Aria Paige Ashker. Unfortunately, something caused our surrogate to go into labor at 21 weeks. Although she went to the hospital immediately, she was already in full labor. Less than 3 short hours later, our babies came into the world. They were too young to survive outside the womb, although they did live, and move, for a short while after birth. They died in loving arms. They were so loved, and so wanted. We will never forget our angel twins. We love our babies to the moon and back, forever and a day
