Week #2 Semi-Finalist: Proud Army Wife Kimberly Meyer

My Husband is the best thing that has ever happened to me! We met when we were both 20 years old. I feel in love with him instantly! He has those baby blues that you can't stop staring at and the best personality that anyone could ever ask for! He is in the Army Reserves, but his Military life has been like he is Active Duty. His Unit is based out of Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis, MO.

I found out I was pregnant a few months after we started going out and then we found out he was deploying on his first tour to Iraq. We decided to get married because we knew already we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and then not even a month after we got married and when I was 4 months pregnant he left for Iraq. It is so hard watching the love of your life walk away and not knowing if or when you will see them again. I stayed strong for myself, for him and our unborn baby.

Our son decided to come 6 weeks early on November 12, 2007 while my Husband was overseas. My Husband had his leave planned for the time of birth but since our son came early, he missed it. My Husband kept telling me he was sorry and thought I was upset with him, but I wasn't. I knew he had a job to do. A month after our son was born, he met his Daddy the first time at the airport. It was the sweetest thing ever! He was only home on leave for 2 weeks and had to go back and then 6 months later came home for good, we thought.

My Husband was home for not even a year, I just found out I was pregnant again and we found out he was getting deployed yet again. Our daughter had major complications when she was born, but thank God she is doing well. When she was 2 months old and our son was 1 1/2, he left for Iraq again.

My Husband has missed a lot of our kids growing up, but I will never be upset with him that he did. Of course like any wife or Mom I would want him here, but I am so Proud of him and I understand he has a job to do and he loves doing it!

I am so happy and thankful to be married to my Hero! He does so much for myself and our family. We are going through so hard times right now with money, but he works so hard to provide for us so that we can have the necessities. If it wasn't for him I don't know where I would be and he makes me the happiest girl in the world!

I am so happy to be married to my Best friend, My Love, My Hero!
