We first met in August of 1999 as freshman at Marietta College. 9 years later…we went on our first date! We got married on May 23, 2009. When we first started seriously taking about our future, kids were always in the equation. We lost our first pregnancy on February 7, 2010. We were about 6 weeks along. After a year of trying, we got pregnant again. But that pregnancy ended February 3, 2011 at around 7 weeks. Through all the hospitals, pain & heartbreak… one month later…we got pregnant again! This time, we got to enjoy 23 weeks of pregnancy. On September 15, 2011…our daughter Sarah Grace Owens was born in Albuquerque, NM. She went to be with the Lord an hour after birth. Most recently, we lost our fourth child at 6 weeks on May 8th. Only God knows now if we will ever raise a biological child. But through our faith and trust in God, we are now here, starting the adoption process in hopes of growing our family.
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. (Deuteronomy 29:29 KJV)
