Where should I start?!
If you know Hanna & Robert then you already know they are the most selfless, giving people you’ve ever met! I’ve watched them struggle with fertility time after heartbreaking time. It’s not fair, how could someone so deserving be deprived of being a mother?!?! Well that’s because God had BIG plans! Now they will be welcoming their precious miracle babygirl as early as December!!! That’s in like 2 weeks right?! So everyone knows babies are expensive but adoption is even more financially exhausting! If you feel compelled to help get this babygirl where she belongs I know they will be eternally grateful! You couldn’t ask for two more deserving people than these two! Thank you from the bottom of MY heart for reading their story below & donating❤️
Robert and I met in 2014 and knew immediately we would get married. We couldn’t stand to go a day without each other. Before we knew it, we had become the greatest friends either of us has ever had. We got engaged in July 2017 and were married in May 2018. He has two precious, goofy boys. Hunter is now in the 4th grade and Gage is in 3rd grade, both at Verdigris Public Schools. Robert and I began trying immediately for a baby. I was thrilled to find out I was pregnant in Sept 2018. I decided to tell Robert the news on his birthday, Sept. 22nd. I wrote on his cake “We’re having a baby!” and you can just say the crowd went wild. Robert probably hugged me for 20 minutes, my mom and aunt are hugging and jumping at the same time, my dad was crying… it was an emotional but exciting day! Three weeks later I started to bleed and knew something wasn’t right. I went to the ER and that’s when they informed me I was having a miscarriage. We were so sad, but knew our sweet baby was in Heaven. Early December I found out I was pregnant again. We were thrilled! The day before Christmas Eve I woke up with blood everywhere, I knew what this meant. Once again we were heartbroken but kept our faith. March came around and I had a positive pregnancy test. But 2 short weeks later we learned my hCG levels weren’t going up which meant another miscarriage. We waited 3 long months for this baby to pass through before we made the decision that I should have a DNC. It was my first surgery ever, I was quite nervous but I also knew this could help me in the long run carry a baby full term. It was the beginning of October when I found out I was pregnant again. I was excited, but also knew what to expect. The next week after having blood work done two days in a row (to see if my hCG levels were going up as they should) I was told my numbers weren’t rising at all… which meant miscarriage #4. I am very thankful I was able to conceive 4 precious babies who are now watching over our family from Heaven. There’s no better place they could be and we think about them every day. The boys love to ask questions about them and include them in everything we do. It’s so touching knowing their little hearts care so much! Now for some “Oh my gosh!! Seriously!?” news. Early November I received a call from my doctor. She wanted to know if Robert and I were open to adopting. She had a patient wanting to put her baby up for adoption and we immediately came to mind. I couldn’t believe it! God led this baby into our lives! I said “Absolutely!”. But there’s always the concern and worry of the mother changing her mind. But we wanted to stay as positive about it as we could because this was a gift from God! On November 20th I received a phone call from my doctors office asking if I could come in immediately to meet the mother of the baby and see the ultra sound. Holding in my excitement was almost impossible! She gave me all the confidence I needed to know that this baby is suppose to be ours. I couldn’t help but hug her neck off! So here is the wild part, the baby is due in 7.5 weeks! Like what?! The mother also put a little bug in my ear that her other kids have came 3-6 weeks early! So you’re saying we could possibly have a baby before Christmas?! AHH! We have SO much to do and prepare for! Lawyer visits, doctor appointments, laying floor down and completely revamping our spare bedroom into a baby’s room, home studies and more! We are almost overwhelmed with what needs to be done in this short amount of time, but we’re SO, SO THANKFUL! We had no idea our life was about to begin…. with a sweet, precious baby girl.
Robert’s sweet cousin insisted on starting a fundraiser for us. We are so incredibly thankful for our family and friends. God has truly blessed us and He will bless you too!
Robert, Hanna, Hunter, Gage & baby girl.
