Ben got a job back in my hometown and we ended up moving there right before our wedding. I was still a full-time college student and I started subbing at the local schools. We enjoyed being together and spending time with our family and friends. We prayed that God would expand our family in His timing and in the way he wanted. We both loved kids and had served with children in a mission capacity and talked about someday adopting.
After being married for around 9 months, we found out we were going to have a baby! We were SO excited. Many of our friends were already blessed with a little one and we both were just so excited to start adding to our family!
Ethan Uriah was born the end of May and weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds and 14.5 ounces. The only issues during the whole pregnancy was him being a complicated breech and requiring a c-section. He was SO beautiful!
His service was beautiful and heartbreaking.
