Sweet Baby Gabe

written by Wendy Justis

So it was an amazingly wonderful surprise when we found out we were pregnant. Then we found out it was a boy and we were beside ourselves with joy and a little nervousness. Most of my nervousness came from the amount of stress I was under during the whole pregnancy. That in turn made me […]
