After 17 Years Of Trying, Man Weeps When Bride Reveals They’re Finally Pregnant.

Having a child is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. It presents incredible opportunities, but they don’t always go as planned… and not every hopeful parent gets the chance to have one. Thankfully, time and time again we see stories like this and are reminded to have hope in all circumstances.


Dana and Arkell Graves had been trying to have children for 17 years.  The Graves’ family continually went through the heartbreak and disappointment that can only come from loss. Dana had 4 miscarriages and a stillborn at 5 months… and the couple had all but given up.

But then the incredible happened.

In a joyous turn of events, Dana was shocked to find out that she was 5 months pregnant! She knew Arkell would absolutely lose his mind over the news and decided to surprise him in the best way possible.

While fixing dinner, Dana asked Arkell to grab something out of the oven. Lo and behold, Arkell found it a “bun in the oven” and an ultrasound still of his coming son.

Here’s the Takeaway: Even when all hope seems lost, never give up. Likely your hope lies just around the corner.
