P.S. He Loves You

UPDATE: My dear friend Dave's sweet babies were born about 3 weeks after I wrote this post so I'm updating with a picture.  Welcome to the world Samuel and Sylvia (AKA Sam and Syl).  So precious!

Dear David’s Twins,
It’s just about time to welcome you two into the world. You don’t know it yet, but you’ve had us all a bit on edge of late as we get word that you’re ready to make your entrance, and then get word that you’re not.  I know you’ll come when you are ready, but hurry okay!
So… I wanted to write you this brief note to let you know how excited we are that you are coming, and to tell you a few things about your dad.
There. Now on to a few things about your dad. By the time you can read this for yourselves you will already know these things about him. Your dad is funny, creative, optimistic, endearing, clever, and determined. When he walks into a room he immediately becomes the hub and we are mere spokes drawn into his charismatic orbit. (He hardly ever lets that go to his head by the way ;-)
And did I mention lucky? I hope you two inherit this from him. His “parking karma”, His “YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED” proclamations that never disappoint. Good things happen when your dad is involved in stuff guys. That’s just the way it is.
He knew he’d be a gay dad, but didn’t really start out to be a single gay dad. But he'll be fine and I can’t think of a better parent for you to have. He doesn’t look at the prospect of raising twins by himself as something that is insurmountable.  He looks it as it is. A great opportunity to get to love and raise the two most incredible babies in the world. And his circle of friends is wider and stronger than he’s ever realized. But he’ll learn that soon enough too. (And I’m also guessing he won’t be a single dad for long. But then again, like I said, good things happen when your father is involved ;-)
Alrighty then kids. We expect to hear any minute, hour or day that you are here. Keep your seatbelts fastened. You’re in for the ride of your lives! –Monica and family

What an awesome tribute to a friend and father. David is a lucky man to be surrounded by such loving friends. It sounds like it's been a bit of an ever changing journey - but I always believe people are in the right place at the right time for things such as this. David- good luck to you and your new family and hold on for the ride of your life! It's going to be amazing!
