Losing a loved one can be the most difficult thing a person can ever experience, but even during the darkest of times, God finds a way to remind us that things do turn better eventually.
Courtney Hill and her husband Bryan had a perfect marriage. They were parents to a daughter and were looking forward to their life together following Bryan’s deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Sadly, before they could see their daughter grow together, Bryan was killed in a car crash. This broke Courtney’s world into a million pieces, but she needed to stay strong for her daughter who lost her daddy.
As Courtney was preparing for the wake, she learned something that left her in complete shock. She was pregnant. Then, during the wake, she held Bryan’s hand and whispered in his ear, “Sweetheart, you’re going to be a dad again.”
She was now a single mother who expected a new child with the man of her life who was no longer there. But Courtney was determined to have the baby and be the best mother.
Following a doctor’s visit, Courtney learned something she never expected to. She wasn’t expecting one child, but three. “My jaw dropped. But I was excited to have three more smiles that remind me of him,” she told CBS Chicago.
Unfortunately, with multiple pregnancies there are always risks, and when Courtney had another ultrasound, she received some horrible news. One of the babies didn’t make it. Luckily, the other two, Miles and Harper, were born perfectly healthy.
Looking at her children, Courtney knew her husband would be proud of them, and she always found strength in the fact that he was looking over them from above.
When people asked her if her babies were twins, Courtney would always answer, “I call them surviving triplets.”
Thanks to the help of her family and friends, Courtney is going strong and raising her three children the best she can. She’s a proud mother who is looking forward to the future.
