May 23 ,2015. The day my husband and I got married.
The day we proved to everyone we beat the odds against us. We were young parents and struggled to finish high school. Then my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and she passed. Then I was diagnosed with an ovarian syndrome 3 months before our wedding.
I was pretty sure my husband wasn’t going to marry me at that point because I was now going to have difficulty having more children. And through everything, we got married on May 23, 2015.
On July 13, 2017, we found out we were having another baby after a long struggle and my due date was on my mother-in-laws birthday! We just celebrated our 4th anniversary this year and I saw this and ordered one because our stars really aligned in our lives.
When it arrived, I couldn't believe one of the constellations! It was two people holding hands. It truly is so beautiful and telling of our lives together. Through everything, we always stood by each other and now I get to tell this story every time someone asks ‘what is that picture?’ This has been the most meaningful gift I have given.
