Couple injured in Boston bombing welcomes baby girl


"Caroline Reinsch and Christian Williams both suffered serious injuries and permanent scarring in the Boston Marathon bombing in April, but it’s what happened afterward that will always make them remember that day.

While in the hospital during the aftermath of that horrific event, they learned that Reinsch, 39, was pregnant, and that they'd get to have the baby they'd been trying to conceive since 2012.

During her treatment for a damaged right thigh and quadriceps muscle at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital in Boston, Reinsch was given a pregnancy test, which came back as a "slight positive." Doctors advised her to take a follow-up pregnancy test at home, which revealed she had been pregnant for about one or two weeks at the time of the bombing."

God is good. :)


Where sin abounds, grace abounds al the more. Congratulations to the new parents,
what a blessing out of such a tragic event.
