Gerrad and I met in high school.
He was a senior while I was a sophomore. We were friends for a while before we started dating in January 2003. We graduated in 2005 and moved in together in 2006 and were married in April of 2007!
I knew he was the one to spend the rest of my life with about a year into our relationship. I was 19 when we got married and I knew I was young but, I knew I couldn’t live without him.
One of the many qualities he has that I love about, is that he is an amazing husband and father. (My family even calls him Saint Gerrad)
One quirky thing about him is that he Giggles all the time!
We found out we were having our first child in December of 2010 and we were so excited!! Gavin was born in 2011 and was premature. He spent 6 weeks in the NICU when he was born and was born with a cleft palate. 3 surgeries and countless speech therapy sessions later, he is a healthy, sweet, amazing 9 year old boy!
Delaney was born in 2013 and spent 17 days in the NICU before she got to come home from the hospital! She is the definition of sugar and spice!
Gavin loves video games and legos! Typical boy! Fortnite is his fav! Delaney loves playing with her slime and makes new slimes all the time! Gavin was to be a rancher when he is older and Delaney aspires to be a teacher! Her inspiration is from her favorite teacher, Mrs. Gurrola! – Jessica Rogers
