They also talked about something else. Dad told Mom that if he died before the baby was born, that he wanted some of his life insurance money to pay for our m/w and birth center. Mom told us last night about their conversation and informed us that all our costs for this birth will be taken care of with his insurance money.
I also have a second motive for telling you all this story. Get life insurance. Do it for your kids, or for your partner, or for anyone else in your life that will have expenses after you die. This was an amazing gift my dad gave us, one that will really help us start off right with a new baby. Don't procrastinate - it's too important.
Thank you, Dad. We miss you.

How awesome that your dad did that for you guys.. what a great parting gift!
My mom died almost two years ago, when I was pregnant with Cale and Dillon. I was in the hospital for preterm labor when she went into hospice and couldn't go home to see her. I still regret it in my heart, like I should have gone against my doctor's recommendation, left the hospital, and flown home. But my brain knows I'd regret to 25 week premies even more.
Anyway, pregnancy is a crappy, crappy time to lose a parent. I'm very sorry. ((Hugs.))
IKWM about life ins. Dh and I have very larger policys so that one or the other is taken care of or our children will be very well taken care of heaven forbid they ever have to use it though.
