Navy Baby ~ Maryland Baby, Family, and Portrait Photographer

Sometimes life throws you for one HUGE loop….  And it can be enough to test your faith in an equally big way.  As a result, you must choose one of two options — you could either let it bring you down and then end up destroyed, or, even through the pain, you can count your blessings and celebrate life!  The “K” family just happens to have chosen the latter and are embracing the sweet joys of a beautiful existence here on earth.

A few years ago I met “D” while browsing at Kohl’s.  She was about 8 months pregnant with a baby girl, pushing a stroller with another gorgeous little girl inside, and as moms often do, we just started chatting about (what seemed like) everything under the sun.  And as they say, “The rest is history!” — We’ve been great friends ever since!  She is one of those beautiful and amazing moms who just have it all together — she understands what “family” truly means and is totally fulfilled in every capacity as a wife and mother.

One day her life was turned upside-down when her husband, a Navy pilot, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  What followed was an unimaginable and frightening series of tests, consultations, heartbreak, tears, and countless prayers.  ”D” remembers that time as just a blurry passing of one day to another, and said she was almost paralyzed by the fear of losing the love of her life.  They spent long hours at National Naval Medical Center where Dr. Mulligan performed the miraculous surgery that removed the tumor.   This surgery happened exactly one year ago on St. Patrick’s Day.  Incredibly, “S” has made a full recovery and he and his family will forever be grateful to Dr. Mulligan, the ICU nurses, interns, and entire staff at NNMC.  The magnitude of this miracle is not lost on the “K” famliy….they know how fragile and delicate life can be, and they really know how blessed they are to have not just survived this traumatic event, but to celebrate and truly cherish all that God has given to them.  ”D” and “S” are strong and resilient and have come through the scariest moment in their life together…and I know it’s because of the pure goodness in their hearts that they have been blessed yet again…this time with beautiful baby boy “K,” third in the “K” family series!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day and the One Year Anniversary of your surgery, “S”!  Here’s to many years of health and happiness!  Cheers!
