A Fireman Delivered A Baby And What His Family Found Days Later Is Absolutely Stunning…


They say there are no coincidences in life. If so, this featured story today can be considered a true act of destiny.

Firefighters save lives every day – it’s their job. But then they move on to the next job and rarely know what ends up happening to the people they rescue. Except in this case, where the firefighter rescued a baby and then decided to adopt her.

Marc Hadden a member of the fire department in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, had an unusual day at the office – rather than fighting a fire, he ended up delivering a baby for the very first time.

Hadden responded to a 911 call from a woman who was having abdominal pains. When he arrived, he ended up delivering a baby for the first time in his life. He had to give emergency oxygen to the baby girl until she could breathe on her own. “She struggled from the minute she was put in my hands,” Marc said. “It was amazing to hear her cry.”

When he got the baby to the hospital, her birth mother said she couldn’t take care of the baby, as she was a single mother to a teenager already. As it turned out, Marc and his wife, Beth, had been looking to adopt for years, after dealing with complications during the births of their two sons. Marc joked that he’d like to throw his hat in the ring to adopt the baby—but he wasn’t really kidding.

Beth and Marc visited the birth mother at the hospital. “My heart just went out to this woman,” Beth said. “I brought her a little prayer book and asked I could get anything for her.” A doctor walked in to start talking about adoption, and the birth mother said she couldn’t give her child up to someone she had never met.
