Hey everyone! My name is Sabra VanAuken (soon to be Leighty). My fiance- Ryan-is a volunteer firefighter for the Orange Township Volunteer Fire Department (Indiana). We're getting married in June. We have an almost 2 year old daughter- Rhianna; and a baby coming in July. I have the desire to become a 1st Responder after the baby is born. There is a long history in both of our families that involves the police department and fire department. I graduated from Tri-State (Trine) University in May of 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I currently work in the Mental Health field and have been at my job for about 2 years. Ryan and I have known each other since we were 3 and 4 years old. We've been dating almost 5 years. I'll be looking forward to communicating with everyone here in the group!

Hi Sabra and welcome to the group!

I'm a police officer and married to a firefighter.  We have a 18 month old and another on the way.  You must be extremely busy taking care of a toddler and being pregnant with your second AND planning a wedding.  Hats off to you!  Anytime you need to talk or vent or ask about anything, please feel free to post.  We welcome your input! 

Thanks for joining and please keep up the conversations!
