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.

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.
