Our story is one of ups and downs. My husband and I met in 2005. We met and hit it off instantly. (Kissing Couple #3263). We had so many things in common, our birthdays being in December was a main one! (Months of Love Stone December # 3342). We did a lot of things together, but our focus was soccer! My husband is a huge soccer fan. He loves to play soccer, watch soccer, coach soccer. All soccer, all the time. (Soccer Ball #4989). And I enjoyed it also. We grew together, and eventually got married in October 2010. (Wedding Rings #0293). We continued to live our wonderful life together. In 2014, we found out we were pregnant with a little boy. We were so excited and couldn’t wait for him to arrive. Sadly, our son was born premature on 7/3/14. And even though he was a tough baby, and fought to be with us, he passed away on 7/4/14. (Flat Praying Angel Boy #0704) (Birth Month Baby Shoe July #2734). It broke our hearts to lose our son. But with the help and love for each other, and the support of our family and friends, we continued our journey together.
For Valentine’s Day 2015, my husband surprised me with an adorable puppy. He was a little chubby fur ball. So much energy and so playful. Now that he’s bigger, he looks like a mini German shepherd. (German Shepherd Dog #2882). Our doggy was definitely what I needed to keep me busy. And he did! Every July brings back sad memories of our son. But in July 2015, we got pregnant again. And even though it was a scary situation, we were so excited! And when we found out we were having a little girl…it was such a joy! (Daughter Disc #4161). We waited patiently for her arrival. Our baby girl was born on 3/21/2016. (Birth Month Baby Shoe March #2734). She was what our family needed. And even though our son isn’t here physically, our family of 5 is complete. There’s so much love within our home. And so much happiness. Love is what keeps us going (Signed With Love #2634).
