Gentry and Hadley Eddings were heading home from a wedding that night in North Carolina when tragedy struck.

An out-of-control truck driven by a distracted driver smashed into their mini-van, instantly killing their young son, Dobbs.

Hadley, who was eight-months-pregnant at the time, was rushed to a nearby hospital for an emergency C-section to try to save their baby. Sadly, baby Reed died just two days later.

Throughout all of the pain and heartbreak, they kept their feelings real. “We cry a lot,” Hadley said.

They found comfort in their church, where Gentry is a pastor, and they worked to eventually forgive the man who took the lives of their two children.

After nearly two years of living through such a major tragedy, the Eddings were thrilled to finally be sharing some happy news again: they are expecting twins!

The ultrasound photo they shared on Facebook was accompanied by their happy news: “Y’all have held us up in prayer and we are so grateful! Now we ask you to add two more Eddings to your prayers! We are expecting twins this summer!”

The Eddings thought us a lesson, to hold on to faith and to "Forgive just as Christ forgave us" Ephesians 4:32
