There is a video of a gender reveal party which was posted last year to Tiniki Thomas’ YouTube channel that nearly broke my heart. The expecting couple must have had their baby by now, however I want to share with you this video just to make sure we are all aware of how important, at the end of the day, family is.
People in the video seem to be in high spirits. The parents are beyond cheerful sitting next to each other between a box on which it says: ”Boy or girl?
We see two more ladies in the same shot, standing on the mother’s side. People are cheering from behind the camera.
“Alright, are we ready?!”-shouts a female voice.
The mother and the father take their places.
One of the girls in the shot explains the parents that they should lift the lid of the box in order to find out the gender of the baby they are expecting.
The countdown starts from 10. The parents are fidgety and cannot wait to take off the lid. They both have their hands on the box.
“…six, five, four, three, two, one..!”, the parents take the lid off!
Three white balloons came out of the box. A knot is fastened with a string to the balloons.
“Read it!” someone yells at the mother!
The mother is in shock and starts crying. What seems to be happening?
There comes the tricky part.
The father starts reading the letter to the guests.
In the comments below the video, Tiniki Thomas took to explain the reason behind the three balloons.
“This family at the time had dealt with 3 miscarriages late in pregnancy; 2 with the couple and 1 with the sister. It took a lot to get them where they were that day.”
This is where I start bawling.
“So emotions where at an all time high. They expected the box but we decided to put a twist to it with the balloon mommy reveal while letting them know the other babies have not been forgotten.”
Now, a lady brings a balloon sculpture of a pregnant mommy to the room. This belly holds the answer to the baby’s gender.
The mother is to pop the belly with a needle! As soon as they are done with the countdown, she pops it to reveal pink balloons!
Everybody in the room starts jumping up and down and sheering at the top of their lungs!
The mother and the father are beside themselves. Six pairs of hands are hugging them at the same time!
I wish this family all the love and luck in the world!
