13 years ago today you became husband and wife. 13 years ago today you vowed to love each other in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad times.
Four and a half years of infertility followed, then four girls, one boy, and two little ones (lost through miscarriage) later, your empty arms have been filled–what an amazing journey you’ve been on! Through the intense pain of losing your first-born daughter, to roller-coaster high-risk pregnancies, you’ve truly weathered the hard times in life. Yet through pain and sorrow, God has abundantly given joy. Happy giggles and laughter fill your home, the nursery is occupied, and enthusiasm abounds. Added to that is the eternal joy of seeing Abigail and Bethany accept Jesus as their Savior. You’ve been blessed.
We are grateful for your love for Jesus, your desire to raise children who will be ambassadors for Him, and your hearts for each other.
