It really is amazing to think about being parents and having our own child to raise. We are thankful that God has blessed us with this new life and we look forward to taking on this new adventure!”


They shared the details about how they found out about this pregnancy. It turns out that Abbie wasn’t feeling well. They went to urgent care. The nurse explained that they always do a pregnancy test and that Abbie’s came back positive. They were shocked to find out in this way, but they seem thrilled to be parents soon.
