Marine’s 4-Year-Old Son Tearfully Embraces New Stepmom As She Reads Special Vow For Him

“I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you.”

Weddings are usually memorable events where strong emotions are felt not only by the couple but even by their parents, families, and guests. It is, however, a rare thing to see a little boy in tears because his heart was touched by the said occasion.

This is what exactly happened as U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Josh Newville and Senior Airman Emily Leehan tied the knot in a Ripley, New York wedding. 4-year-old Gage, Newville’s son was overwhelmed with emotion when he was invited to stand at the altar and as he listened to Leehan read a special vow she wrote for him.

Leehan began “I want you to be safe and to try your hardest and to be a good person” which instantly prompted Gage to tears.

The bride continued:

“I know that you and I will butt heads. But I hope with all my heart that as you become a grown man, you will understand my methods and realize I have only done what is best for you and that I love you. The last thing that I hope you learn is that you are a very special boy. You are so extremely smart, handsome, and kind to others. You have helped shape me into the woman I am today. And I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you.”

Needless to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.

The video immediately went viral as it garnered a lot of attention online.

As for people speculating that it was probably stage fright that caused the boy to burst in tears, photographer Jessica Husted told Yahoo Style:

“You should have seen him walk down the aisle — I don’t think anything was bothering him. He made his entrance to the reception with a Darth Vader mask on. This kid is totally fearless.”

Husted likewise added:

“I think he totally understood. He could feel all of the emotions in the room and all of the love, and he just fed off of that, especially when Emily started talking directly to him. I think to a point he absolutely knew what was going on, even being that young.”

Michael Gallagher, a videographer and a family friend, also confessed:

“It was so emotional that I actually walked away from the ceremony and left my camera just recording because I was crying so much.”

Meanwhile, the clip was also shared by Good Morning America’s Facebook site where Käli Nuckols, Gage’s mother, left a comment.

Nuckols wrote:

“As his mother I can say she’s an awesome addition to the family and they love each other so much. He’s got so many people that love him, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

Brain-Dead Mom Miraculously Gave Birth To Twins After 123 Days On Life Support

A 21-year-old mom miraculously gave birth to twins after she was declared brain-dead and was kept on life support for 123 days.

A father was supposed to lose three people in his life after his wife was declared brain-dead while she was pregnant with their twins. However, the babies kept clinging for their lives so the doctors made a ground-breaking decision to keep their mother alive for 123 days on life support so they will be saved.

Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha was only 21 when she was declared brain-dead after suffering from a stroke. It was an unfortunate and heartbreaking incident for the family since she was then already several months pregnant with twins.

Medical doctors at the Nosso Senhora do Rocio hospital in Campo Largo were then about to give up three lives as they believed the situation is already hopeless. Yet after the nine-week-old embryos’ hearts kept beating, the doctors were convinced that the twins were fighting for their lives despite their mom's condition.

The twins were eventually born miraculously but they struggled to survive inside their mother's womb for a couple of months.

Mom Reveals History of D**g A***e, But Her Transformation Proves Recovery Is Possible

A young mom abused opioid for years but now has recovered fully after she got help from her family.

The drug that was supposed to help a West Virginian mom skip her pains has instead inflicted more harm than she could handle. Opioid remains to be one of the most abused drugs that causes several deaths every day in different parts of the world. The United States alone experiences thousands of overdose deaths every year. From teens to adults, we have seen too many addicts who lost the hope to recover and simply passed away.

Heroin or opioid acts like a morphine – a strong painkiller used by terminally-ill people. It works to stop pain sensations and gives a bonus of defeating depression effects. The bad news, however, is that opioid also slows down breathing to the point that it can be lethal. A whopping 44 users die every day because of this and more will follow if they fail to get immediate help.

Melissa Lee Matos was a daughter, a mother and a wife before she started abusing opioid which eventually destroyed her life.

While it is definitely difficult to withdraw from deep opioid addiction, there were still some people who successfully mustered their courage to come clean. Melissa Lee Matos of West Virginia is one of them....
