'Pray that he will be home safe'
This is a picture of my huband in Kuwait 2 years ago, he's been so busy this deployment though that he hasn't been able to take any new pictures. We had a going away party before he deployed in July. The party was also a congrats to us and my husband's brother and my sister-in-law for both of our pregnancies. We're only 2 weeks apart! I pray that Brandt will be home safe before the baby is born! His family and I all miss him very much and cannot wait until he comes back!
