Aaron Trejo, 16, and Breana Rouhselang, 17, met while attending Mishawaka High School in Indiana. Both of them were heavily involved in the school’s athletic program. Breana was on the school’s cheerleading team, she coached softball, and was a manager for the football team too. Aaron played on the football team.
As one would imagine, the football players and cheerleaders often socialized together. Aaron and Breana were practically neighbors and knew each other fairly well.
Friends of the two knew they were seeing each other but, the two were not officially dating by any means. Both Aaron and Breana’s families had no idea that the two were involved.

Over the course of time though, things quickly progressed in their relationship.
Suddenly, the two teenagers’ biggest concerns would become a reality….

Before long, Breana was pregnant and Aaron was the father.
Breana did not tell Aaron this news immediately though.
Perhaps she didn’t know how to tell him, or worse, was afraid to.
Her parents realized that Breana’s grades had begun to slip.
Normally, Breana worked extremely hard in school and had hopes of one day going to college.

However, with the grades she was earning now – college seemed like it would remain just a hope. There was no way she was going to get accepted anywhere with the grades she started to pull.
Despite her slipping grades, her love for life and sweet attitude did not change.
Her father, Dave, described his daughter to the Daily Beast as, “the most caring, innocent person you could ever meet.”

Dave had recently taken Breana and her friends out to T.G.I.Friday’s, which is also where he happened to work. It was the week before Thanksgiving, and they were celebrating her birthday.
Breana’s biological mother also joined the family to help celebrate her daughter’s birthday. Breana spent her time with both her biological mother and father, who were separated and shared custody of their daughter.
