Our story is truly one of sweet destiny! Growing up I repeatedly stated that I’d never get married. However, the longer Omar and I dated, the more my mind changed. In February 2015, I began having some health complications. After numerous tests, I was advised that I might need a hysterectomy. At that point, doctors were researching whether cancer was involved. I came home and gave Omar the terrible news. On Friday the 13th of February, four days after receiving the distressing news, Omar came home and called my daughter and son over. He looked at me and said, “Miss Jane, are you “down” to marry me? To grow old with me?” I looked at him in utter shock. He continued, “I want you to know that no matter what happens, I’m here for you. We will get through it together and there is no one else I would rather spend the rest of my life with.” I stared at him as the tears welled up in my eyes. He looked at me and said, “You’re not down, huh?” That was the point when I realized that he was getting worried because I hadn’t said a single thing. I looked at him and said, “Yes, I’ll marry you Mr. Ortiz!”

Omar and I began planning for our big day. We ordered Mexican clay plates and molcajetes among many other things from Mexico. My parents had driven down there to vacation and I had every intention of filling their pickup truck with Mexican novelties for our wedding. Due to some unexpected health news and finding out we were expecting a baby, we considered cancelling the wedding. But by then, we had already booked the venue, ordered my dress and made deposits towards other things. We decided to leave it in God’s hands and continue with our wedding plans despite the health challenges the baby and I were facing. Then we went in for an ultrasound and the technician asked us if we would like to know the gender of the baby. We told her we were getting married in five days and had contemplated doing a gender reveal with our wedding cake. She loved the idea and turned off the monitor. She captured pictures of the baby’s gender and then continued with the ultrasound. She did not share with us what we were having. She asked us to step out of the room before she would print the pictures showing the baby’s gender. She then put them in a sealed envelope and we drove them straight to the bakery that would be making our cake. The bakery was thrilled with the idea and we looked forward to cutting that cake on our wedding day! It was priceless sharing it with our family and friends. Our fun-filled day consisted of scrumptious Mexican cuisine, loving moments with family and friends, and heartfelt romantic Mariachi music!

We are beyond blessed to have found out that I did not need a hysterectomy, I did not have cancer, and we got married and welcomed our baby boy Liam!

The best memory of the day was the gender reveal. It was priceless finding out that we were having a baby boy and being able to share that moment with our family and friends. Truly sweet destiny!
