When a couple learns that they are going to have a child, it immediately becomes one of the most exciting times in their lives (and sometimes tears). When you have a baby, you go from being “just the two of us” to having the responsibility of parenting a small human being. This is a time that is both exciting and nerve-wracking for new parents. However, having children of one’s own is without a doubt one of the most gratifying aspects of adulthood. When Barbara Bienvenue and her boyfriend Paul found out they were going to have their first child together, both of them simultaneously experienced feelings of excitement and anxiety. This was the first time either of them had ever been a parent. Even though they had just recently gotten married, they were confident that having children would strengthen their bond with one another. On the other hand, the newlyweds were in for a very big surprise in their new life together.
