After many failed attempts to start a family, Kirsten and her husband were ecstatic to finally announce they were expected a child. With plans to surprise Kirsten’s father, they kept a secret for weeks.
Struggling through infertility challenges and multiple miscarriages, Kirsten was starting to feel defeated. It had been months and months of trying with heartbreaking disappointment.
Finally, the couple’s circumstances changed. Kirsten discovered she was pregnant the week of July, 4th and couldn’t wait to tell her husband. Eventually, the news spread like a wildfire no one could contain.
Grandpa Robert, Kirsten’s dad, was one of the first people to know. There for the ups and the downs of the couple’s journey, Grandpa Robert offered support. He knew how invested his daughter and son-in-law were in the process and wholeheartedly congratulated them on the news.
In fact, he was so excited, he insisted on remaining a part of the entire process. Accompanying the couple to doctor visits and learning about prenatal care was only the beginning for Grandpa Robert. He wanted to fully immerse himself in the earliest stages of his grand baby’s life.
Once Kirsten had reached the second trimester, it was time for the anticipated ultrasound to reveal the sex of the baby. Kirsten, her husband, and Grandpa Robert were stuffed in the tiny room with the ultrasound technician. On the edge of their seats, all three waited in excitement. The results? It was a boy. Everyone was over the moon.
Months later in September, the couple threw a gender-reveal party for those who still didn’t know. Kirsten and her husband tell everyone they have purchased two cakes, each a specific color representing a boy or a girl. They plan to eventually display whichever cake represents the gender of their baby.
One small twist. Kirsten and her husband promise to write the baby’s name in frosting, something no one but the expectant couple knows.
