Throwback Thursday

For more information on this challenge, please click here.

Our Marine came to me at a very important time in my life. I had just lost our Dorian Lee, stillborn at 20 weeks gestation. I was in major emotional turmoil, feeling like a failure as a wife, a mother…as a woman in general.  I wanted, needed a baby to fill my empty arms and broken heart.  Heavenly Father sent me a miracle and we named him David, which is Hebrew and means “Beloved”. It is also his father’s name.

Here are a few photos from our journey.


Suzanne, December 1993, 15-16 weeks along
