The identity of the woman in this video is unknown, but the story she tells is powerful. With her baby boy in her arms, using homemade cue cards, she takes us on a journey of how her child came to be—starting with her marriage to her high school sweetheart and getting the happy news of her pregnancy. However, things do not turn out as planned: The couple is told their baby will have some serious problems, and when he's born, the problems are worse than expected. But this is a story of love, motherhood, and the value of every human life.
