The Hellenbrand Family! - Robert Farrell

I have known Kurt nearly my whole life. We met sometime in the fuzzy area between elementary school and middle school. I'm friends with his family. I was his best man, and I couldn't be happier for him and Rebecca and the life they've built for each other! This is why I was so excited when Rebecca asked me to be part of a big surprise for Kurt! Their son, Kaleb, is 2 years old and he is going to have a little brother or sister!!!!

She called me about two weeks before the scheduled session to tell me the news. We discussed a few ideas as to how to present it to him during the session. We had many ideas... We talked about wearing Green Bay Packer jerseys and introducing a fourth jersey during the session. We talked about writing it on a chalkboard and holding it up in the middle of the session, and we threw around the idea of Kaleb dressing as a superhero and "needing a sidekick". In the end we decided to have Kurt and Rebecca write down their favorite traits about each other on a chalkboard and then show each other... but instead Rebecca wrote, "We're having a baby!" It was very cute! His reaction was exactly what anyone would expect, completely flabbergasted! We eventually did the Packer and Superhero ideas as well. It was so much fun! Thank you both for letting me be part of it all, I can't wait to see your family of three become a family of four!!!
