This Pregnancy Announcement Video Reduced Us To Blubbering Messes

We might have to stop going onto the ‘Love What Matters’ Facebook page, considering that we turn into emotional messes every time we read one of their posts.

The latest one that has been uploaded is a pregnancy announcement video and while it’s only 50 seconds long, it managed to reduce us to tears.

That’s because of the story behind it.

The soon-to-be mum in the clip was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 27 and was told that treatment could affect her fertility.

She explains: “After years of trying, natural cycle fertility and many tears, heartaches and sorrow, we were told I was slipping in and out of menopause and would not be able to have children. Heartbroken, devastated and feeling complete and utter loss, we moved back home to NS to be near my family. We went for our first information session for adoption.

“At age 36, a month and a half after moving home I got sick. Positive it was from Thai food, I tried nursing myself for a week and a half before I had a feeling to buy another pregnancy test. When it came back positive we could not believe it so we bought two more, had blood work and an ultrasound. Yup, we were preggers!! A miracle baby.

“I couldn't wait to tell my family, especially my brother who did not believe we could not have kids. My brother and I are like best friends. We captured his reaction on video. My son is now 14 months old and I still cannot watch the video without crying. It defines our families true love.

“My little boy is my world. We have been so blessed by this miracle we never thought would happen. Our hearts are full.”
