Sometimes the best music happens when you least expect it.
“Owynn had no clue. It was the best Christmas gift ever.”
“He bent forward and shook as if he was collapsing on himself. I did not know what was happening, and then I realized he was crying.”
“I text him: ‘I’m not doing well. Come home now.’ He will because I have a fractured back! He calls. I’m still crying happy tears, but they sound sad when I say: ‘I need you home.’ Not lying. Those are true statements. He is coming straight home. Success! Praise the Lord for this fractured back. I couldn’t believe that a baby survived my fall, the pain killers, the almost X-ray fiasco, and yet it had.”
“His mom was homeless and couldn’t care for him. ‘That is the saddest thing ever. Do you think that is our baby?’ My husband said, ‘I doubt it. He’s probably pretty sick.’ Off I went. ‘Is everything OK?,’ I asked. They replied, ‘He’s waiting for you in the NICU. He’s yours.’”
“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!”
Photographer pulls off stunning photo shoot with fake flowers in the aisles of the chain store.
“In each of these photos, there is a clear beam of light shining on us. Without question, that was my dad. He told us to save him a seat, and he had the best seat in the house.”
“The frozen milk on the left is from 2 weeks ago. The frozen milk on the right is from this past weekend when her swab came back positive.”
One dog sitter reveals a day in the life of caring for 40 to 65 pups a day.
“I said, ‘Travis, this is it. He’s here. You have to catch him.”
“After a couple of our surrogate options did not work out, we started to take my mother-in-law more seriously.”
“This is amazing. I feel like I’m finally home.”
“We had one day with the thought of infertility being a distant memory and not a devastating reality.”
“Haven’t seen her this happy, excited, and sad at the same time.”

“How am I going to spend that day?”
“We laughed so hard. I had a hard time capturing images because I had tears streaming down my face.”
“As an underdog himself, like the Eagles, Mike has faced adversity and many setbacks throughout his lifetime.”
“Even though Scott is deaf, I have never felt more heard in my life.”
“We never gave up. We never stopped fighting for you.”
“The ‘photographer’ wasn’t a photographer at all. He was actually a minister!”
“All my life, even now, I have never been around them when they weren’t holding each other’s hand. The pure love in his eyes when he looks at her is the kind of love everyone dreams of experiencing. For some people, a nursing home is the best option for their loved one with Alzheimer’s, but there’s no way my grandma would ever let that happen. She’s determined to take care of her best friend.”
“My mother could not believe how perfectly the dress fit me, since our genetics are all so different. She was very emotional. My mom recently fought Stage 3 breast cancer. She is still recovering, so it was really special for her to see me wearing it. We weren’t sure if my mom was going to make it to my wedding at all.”
“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.”
