Christine and Kevin’s marriage began in a surprise proposal prayer that set the tone of their relationship and who they were as individuals. Kevin and Christine understood that marriage was not as much about compatibility as it was about submission to God. Because their marriage happened rather quickly, they worked hard at learning about one another and their relationship grew stronger with one another. They tried to have children soon after they were married but, although nothing appeared to be wrong, they did not conceive. Years later, after being brought spiritually closer to God and to each other through their struggle, Christine and Kevin received the wonderful news that they were pregnant. Throughout this journey, they grew ever more assured in their trust in God and know that their son is His gift to them.
