Former model Turia Pitt, 27, was taking part in an ultra marathon in Australia six years ago when she became trapped in a bush . She was severely burned on 64 percent of her body.
The doctors said there was a chance she wouldn’t survive. When the happened, Turia’s boyfriend Michael Hoskin quit his job as a officer to take care of her. He has always stood by her side and protected her. Michael knew he was going nowhere.
Since the Turia has endured 200 operations. She lost seven fingers and had to spend over two years in recovery. In 2020, she interviewed and talked about the event when the flames trapped her during a 100km event in remote Western Australia. “I remember seeing bits of my skin stuck to the rocks and spinifex,” Pitt said and explained that she felt a “bubbling feeling of .”
In 2015 Michael proposed to Turia with a diamond ring that he bought for her when she lay in intensive care four years ago. Michael says he proposed to her when they were on vacation in the Maldives. “When Turia was in intensive care four years ago I bought a diamond ring,” Michael tells The Daily Mail. Turia had to wear a mask on her face for two years to help her heal. Slowly but surely, she began to recover. “You’re beautiful”, Michael tells his bride every day. The couple got married in 2016.
Turia thanks Michael for all the support he’s given her during the last seven tough years, which she has mostly spent in the . “Going to sleep next to my partner I never thought anything of before. Now I think how lucky am I get to sleep next to this beautiful man. He’s a good guy and I’m very lucky to have him,” Turia Pitt tells the Daily Mail. “Every day I wake up beside Michael is a great day.”
Since the tragic , the couple has rebuilt their lives and to move forwards. “She doesn’t want people to feel sorry for her. She just wants to get on with her life,” Michael tells News.com.au. “She’s beautiful, she’s amazing.” But despite all of this, they felt there was something missing in their lives. They wanted to become a family. In 2017, Turia revealed on Instagram that she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. The news spread quickly across Australia, where people have followed the pair’s journey throughout the years.
The expectant mom explained that she was keeping herself in shape during her pregnancy, even though she wouldn’t be able to run a marathon for a little while. And soon their baby arrived! Michael and Turia welcomed their son Hakavai to the world on 7 December 2017. On 9 February 2020, the couple announced that they had welcomed their second child, another son, named Rahiti Hoskin. Ttoday they are happily married and raising their kid together.
It reminds me of what the Bible says about husband and wife Ephesians 5:25 husbands love your wife just as Christ also love the church and gave Himself for her v: 28 so husbands ought to love their own wife as their own body. Pure love 1Corinthians 13: 4-7 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; does not parade itself , is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth, bears all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things, LOVE NEVER FAILS. I admire your great love story. To God be all the glory in Christ Jesus Christ our Lord and savior amen amen 🙏

Anyone that would leave their husband or wife due to a disfiguring accident is a piece of s***. Love is unconditional, As we get older looks may fade, but your husband or wife is still the same person they were when they were younger, or Not injured or disfigured.
