Missy and Jeff have been together since they were teenagers. They fell in love young, got married young, and also had to deal with incredible hardships at a young age. Seven months after they were married Jeff was diagnosed with a brain tumor. They were told that he was not going to make it. But, they didn’t give up. Missy stayed by his side and helped him fight it. And now, 13 years later, their marriage is stronger than ever, Jeff is healthy and they have a beautiful daughter Lily. Lily just turned two and she is a beautiful little girl. Missy warned me that she is very serious. Having an almost two year old myself I thought I’d be able to get some smiles out of her. I used every trick in the book and Missy is right! Lily is a very happy little girl, just very serious She loves her big, red ball and her George. Lily actually likes to take pictures rather than be in them. A budding photographer perhaps?
I love how through the struggles that Missy and Jeff had to endure early on in their marriage they were able to realize that they shouldn’t take life too seriously and really live in the moment. Just through email correspondence with Missy I could tell that she is a very happy go lucky person and takes things in stride. And from seeing the way they interact with Lily you can just tell how they love to be together. To have the chance to be a family. Lily is very lucky to have parents like that!
