They always say that no matter how dark one’s life becomes, there will still be a rainbow after everyone’s rain. If you believe that everything happens for a reason, seeing something beautiful after a disaster is possible.
On October 2016, couple Britt and Chris got married and were happily starting the early stage of their family life. With a seemingly bright future ahead, the two were optimistic about the life they will be able to create together.
Unfortunately, a disaster struck in August 2017.
The U.S. Army soldier Chris died during an encounter from a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.
Chris has just found out that he will be a dad one week before.
Despite the heartbreak and pain, Britt bravely shared the sad news through her post on Instagram:
“Goodbye, my hero. My person. My calming voice. My soul mate. My world. My soldier. My savior. You will never be forgotten. You will never be replaced.”
The soon-to-be-mother was left with no other choice but to be strong not just for herself but also for their little one.
A bouncing beautiful baby girl was born and was named after her father on March 17, 2018.
Britt wrote: “I knew when Chris passed, I would mourn him as my husband and later I would have to mourn the father of my child”.
“It’s been over 8 months without him. Christian is here now and I can’t help but feel sad. He was so excited. We had plans and in none of them did I ever plan to do this alone. I wanted a family. But I know I can do everything from Christian that Chris would have wanted. I can give her the life and love he would have. I vowed to protect him in death and I will use that same passion to protect her with my life.”
Meanwhile, during his army days, Chris treated his fellow soldiers as his “army brothers” and a part of his extended family.
This is the reason why Britt decided to organize a special and touching photoshoot including them.
When her husband’s fellow soldiers arrived back home from Afghanistan…
She met them and arranged their first time meeting with baby Christian.
Baby Christian also had her photos taken beside her dad’s picture.
Coming from Chris’ battalion, there were 20 men who wore their military uniforms.
Many people were touched by the photoshoot.
It simply shows a genuine and wonderful connection.
They are “Christian’s great big family,” remarked Britt.
This is a really wonderful way to honor the fallen soldier’s memory, don’t you think?
