Well, I started dating this guy last year. He was amazing. The kind of guy that just makes you get butterflies every time you talk to him. We met through mutual friends and hit it off immediately. He was from NC and I was from KY. Well, after my friend did a slip of a number we started talking. Every night I would get home from work and he would call me. We'd stay on the phone all night just listening to each other breathe. After 3 weeks we made it official and started dating. I finally made a trip to NC and it was... my favorite moment of time I'm pretty sure. When our eyes met and we finally got to see the person behind the voice (again) it was love. After I went home we were inseparable. He came to KY every weekend to see me.
One day I was at work and everyone kept saying -August, I think your pregnant. I didn't believe them. Weeks and weeks later I took a pregnancy test. It was positive. I had no idea what to do. I was devastated. See the thing is I hadn't slept with him. That means the baby was my ex's. It was a curse and a blessing. I called him up and told him the news. He didn't talk to me for a few hours because he was crying so hard. I told him if he wanted he could leave me. It wasn't his responsibility to take care of us. He laughed at me. He was raised without a dad and didn't want that for my baby. 2 days later I had a doctors appointment and you better believe he took the day off to drive up there for it. Dustin has been by my side ever since.
At 3 months I got extremely sick. I had to be hospitalized for dehydration and put on IVs. My doctor later decided that bed-rest was the best decision for me and the baby. I had horrible sickness the entire pregnancy EVERY DAY. I was hospitalized on a regular basis after that. Well, obviously not being able to work means that I cant make any money. Meaning I cant pay my bills. I called Dustin and told him I didn't know what I was going to do. He did the only thing he knew. Dustin sold his dirt bike, sold his ps3, sold his Xbox 360, and all his toys he had earned over the years. He drove to KY and packed up all of my stuff. To NC we went. We lived in a hotel for a week before we finally got a duplex that we liked. He would go to work and then come home and take care of me. Dustin is the guy that holds me when I'm emotionally drained, he held my hair when I was puking, he felt every single kick, and helped decide on the perfect name for our baby. Being 3 months pregnant and extremely sick I didn't feel comfortable going to just any doctor. So, every time I had an appointment Dustin would take a day off and we would make a 5 hour drive to KY. Annoying but worth it.
6 months later it was baby time and who was there by my side? Dustin. Holding my hand with every push, he bawled like a baby the day our son was born and loves him unconditionally. Our son is a daddy's boy (most days) and my life is truly amazing. Dustin proposed to me a month after our son was born and were getting married next month (on our birthday!) I just wanted to let people know that there are still good guys out there and to keep looking. I thank God everyday for blessing me with someone like Dustin.
He is the MOST amazing man Ive ever met, the best father I've ever seen, and more generous/caring/loving person I can imagine. I cant wait to spend my life with him!
