Our Growing Family
Adam and I were married in May of 2017. We always knew that we wanted to start trying to grow our family shortly after we got married, but we had no idea how quickly our dream would become a reality! In the fall of 2017, we had just started trying, and I decided to take a pregnancy test. As expected, instantly, only one line appeared: not pregnant. I didn’t bother waiting the full three minutes that the box instructed because I figured that if I were pregnant, 2 lines would have appeared immediately. I was disappointed but went about my afternoon. Later that day, I walked back into the bathroom, and realized that I had forgotten to throw the pregnancy test away. I glanced down at it- 2 lines! Pregnant! I screamed down to Adam…we both couldn’t believe it. I took another test, and we were two for two. We were going to have a baby! It was one of the best moments of our lives together so far.
To Our Son:
We fell in love with you the moment that we found out that you existed. You are, by far, the best thing that has grown from our love. You have brought so much joy into our lives already. We will forever love you always and in all ways
