Jessica Peterson - formerly Jessica Schaffhausen - is seven months pregnant.  Her daughters Amara, Sophie, and Cecilia were killed by Aaron Schaffhausen at their home in River Falls, Wisconsin in July of 2012. 

KSTP-TV out of the Twin Cities reports Peterson says she's, "Balancing dual emotions, having to always be a little sad and a little happy at the same time." She continues to work to build an accessible playground in honor of her three daughters and hopes for a late summer ribbon cutting for the Tri-Angels Playground.  247-thousand dollars has been raised toward the total cost of about half-a-million.
