“Y’all have held us up in prayer and we are so grateful!” Hadley said. “Now we ask you to add two more Eddings to your prayers! We are expecting twins this summer!”

A big congratulations to the Eddings family.

The driver in the crash pleaded guilty to his charges and apologized to the Eddings in an emotional court hearing in September 2015.  The Eddings then forgave the man responsible, Matthew Blair Deans, in the courtroom full of people.
