When Francis was still pregnant, she didn’t have Brandon by her side. She went to ultrasound appointments on her own, and she didn’t have a husband to lean on to for most of her pregnancy.

Despite the struggle, she knew that her husband was doing his best to protect and serve the country.

When it was time to deliver to baby Noah, Francis bravely went into labor, thinking of her husband all throughout.
