Kathleen & Marlon – Contest Entry #2
I live in St Thomas with my husband and our 4 kids a few years ago after a long struggle of being a single mom. I met the greatest man I have ever laid eyes on……right from the get go we meshed we compromised we had fun and we loved….he instantly took to my 4 kids. Nov of 2010 we went and got married we were wearing jeans and a t-shirt and our runners. We had talked about having a baby but my one obstacle was I had my tubes tied since the birth of my youngest child(she is 7) but Last Oct 2010 I finally got the chance to have the operation to have my tubes untied….he was there throughout all of it helping with kids working a fulltime job keeping house being well just awesome…..I planned on it being a long haul the whole trying to get pregnant thing and sure enough it actually didn’t take to much time at all! At the end of Jan in one of our snow storms i was driving back from dropping Marlon off at the flying j for work well the road was slick and icy and it was about 630 am I slid sideways into the ditch on the opposite side of the road was I scared and lucky that there was no one else on the road….I walked in pjs boots no socks along Highbury about 20 mins before someone stopped and drove me the rest of the way home…..the first thing I did when I got home was a pregnancy test(was going to do one that morning anyhow) and sure enough it was positive……so now more excited then mad about my demolished car i made the calls went and got the car out of the ditch with a tow trucks help…i came home and did another test and well it was positive too! I drove to whiteoaks and got a t-shirt that says “its all fun and games till somebody gets knocked up” put it in a bag and waited till I had to go pick Marlon up from work……when i pulled up he was shocked to see the front end of my car ripped off pretty much but instead of telling him the story i gave him the gift bag with the shirt…he didn’t know what to say…he was in shock disbelief excitement etc a world wind of emotions…..since then things have been good with the pregnancy minus the nausea and heartburn this is Marlons first biological child……on fri the 13th this month we found out it was a baby girl…..anyways the photo shoot id like if i were to be chosen is a maternity shoot with Marlon and I and our little miracle.
