Mom Induces Labor So Dying Dad Can Meet Baby

With Dad at death’s door, Mom makes an incredible decision to let him see his new baby daughter.

Diane Aulger and her husband Mark were recently rejoicing to learn that Mark had finally beaten cancer after eight months of heavy chemotherapy. That joy turned to sorrow, when the family learned that the chemotherapy treatments had ravaged Marks lungs, leaving him with a fatal condition, pulmonary fibrosis.

When it was apparent that he wouldn’t make it to see the birth of their daughter Savannah, Diane was induced so that Mark could meet his little girl before passing.

While this story is absolutely heart breaking it is beautiful example of a family’s love for one another. Mark was able to hold his baby while he passed from this world.
