“Right around the time as the miscarriage, we also found out Ben would be deploying for 9 months to Afghanistan. Knowing he would be gone a lot for training between April and when he left in September, we didn’t think it was likely I would get pregnant again before he left, and figured we’d have to wait another year to even start trying for a baby again. Three days before, I decided to test again. To my surprise, it was positive! I was pregnant!”

‘There is no medication to help his PTSD like having his son take our last name.’: Thrilled toddler yells ‘Dad!’ after adoption decree is announced

“Tyler and I met before his deployment to Afghanistan. We knew it would be hard, but we also knew it would strengthen our relationship. He was deployed for 9 months, and one month after he got home, he proposed. We tried for years to get pregnant but came to realize it wasn’t going to happen. Because of the health battles we’ve both been given, we weren’t the type of people to just ‘throw in the towel’ and let our dreams of becoming parents get shattered.”
