This is us:
Chad and I met 13 years ago this past New Year's Eve. We were introduced by friends and actually picked each other out of photos and wanted to meet. We were both in college, three hours away from each other, but somehow, made it work! After I graduated, we moved in together. We eventually were engaged and shortly after we were married, Chad was deployed to Iraq for a year. I was four months pregnant when he was deployed. When he finally came home, he met our son, who was six months old. And, believe you me, that was, without a doubt, the best day of my life!
The day Chad returned from Iraq:
We were being interviewed by the local news channel. I think I smiled like that for a few days. Words cannot even come close to describing how we all felt on this day.
