I wish I could say it was love at first sight. It wasn't. A group of us had gone out for drinks and he was with a friend of mine. He actually spilled his drink in my shoe that night!! I went home furious! A few weeks later he was at a BBQ. Him and his girlfriend had broken up. We started talking and I realised, he wasn't so bad. From that night we started talking more and more. He was in the army and what can I say? I LOVE a man in uniform! We had a few dates and made it official, we became a couple. One year later we got our own place, it was hard, him going to Afganistan terrified me. Not long after I fell pregnant and that was it. He decided it was time to leave the army. He couldn't bare to be away from me and the little girl we had. We named her Grace. She was the best thing in our lives! 9 months later, I fell pregnant again. It was a boy! We were going to have the perfect little family!! Unfortunately, our little boy died when I was 33+3 weeks pregnant. It was a very hard time, I wasn't sure if we could make it through. I put all my energy into starting a charity named 'Sweet Dreams Our Angels' and helped to support people going through the same loss as myself. I started training to be a counsellor to help people even further. It was then that I realised, I had been pushing my partner away. I decided to change this and focused on my family for a long time. Then my Dad died, arranging his funeral with my sister I realised, I couldn't be scared and keep my daughter as an only child. I couldn't have her arranging funerals alone! So 2 and a half years after my little boy died, I was pregnant again. I had a 'rainbow baby' named Alivia. Another little girl. We have a beautiful family together as you can see by our photo but every family photo is tinged with sadness that our little boy isn't with us. We make the most of the time we have together, we love our children and each other more then anything in the world. This is why we want to get married. There was no amazing proposal, just pure love and a decision that we couldn't live without each other. So now we want to make it official because our forever, really is forever. What better way to get married then in the dress of my dreams??
