Abby met Thomas when she rear ended his car in their high school parking lot. And when Thomas walked into the same choir class that Abby was taking, she was mortified! But as the year went on, they became best friends in that very same choir class, and they eventually started dating. After high school, Thomas asked Abby to spend the rest of her life with him at DISNEY WORLD, and she said yes! And then they got MARRIED AT DISNEY WORLD. (Friends, dreams really do come true!) And now, they are celebrating their one year anniversary and undergoing IVF to conceive their first child.
Their lives tell a story of friendship, love, and perseverance. And their Hummel Park Anniversary Session
beautifully displayed their journey together as best friends and husband and wife. However, their life together has not always been easy. For the past year, they have struggled with infertility. Ongoing doctors appointments, frequent surgeries, and daily shots have filled their first year of marriage. The heartbreak that occurs every single time that they are given negative results is overwhelming.
And yet, their joy is evident. Their faith is strong. And their love is abundant.
At our session, I was able to see all of these traits firsthand, and I am so thankful for it. My time with these two was incredibly special, and I loved learning more about their story. It amazes me that despite their struggle and the heartache from failed in-vitro sessions, they still strive to serve and support others. Abby even keeps a blog
to help support other couples that are experiencing infertility.
The light that Abby and Thomas shine is so encouraging. Their storms do not consume them, and they use the strength they have to look outward. I am truly inspired and oh so thankful that I was able to get to experience their struggle and joy with them. It is a story that I will never forget, and a couple that I will never forget. I pray that the Lord blesses their marriage and their gives them a child.
