Before Jeremy's Journey
The story of Jeremy's heritage starts with a seventeen year old girl realizing she is pregnant and scared of what that means for her. She quietly cries out to the God she knows is there for her, and she hears Him comforter and assure her that she can have this baby, and He will be there with her. God tells her he loves her and that the baby she is carrying is special to Him. I have heard this story from my mother-in-law many times. Yet, every time it brings tears to my eyes. I am so very grateful to God for seeing her through that day, and helping her make the choice to have Jeremy.
Jeremy was born and taken home from the hospital to live with not only his single, teen mom, but to be loved by his grandparents. He spent the first few years being raised in his grandparents home while his mom finished high school. Those years with his grandparents created a special bond between them.
This of course is a rough summary of Jeremy's background. I am excited to now move on to the next step in our story. I think the next posts will be glimpses into our childhood leading up to our marriage. Thanks for reading along.
