One of the most precious parts of Christmas is taking in the look of pure joy on your kids’ faces as they open their presents and discover what’s inside. Some gifts can be more meaningful than others and for the young boy in the video below, the gift his parents gave him is clearly one he will cherish for the rest of his life.
The video was posted anonymously to Love What Matters on Facebook with a caption explaining the backstory to the tear-jerking video, “Our family lost twins in June 2016. We all took it hard, but my son took it especially hard, not able to understand why this was happening when he wanted to be a big brother so badly. After 15 months of trying again, we finally got pregnant with our Rainbow baby. We told our son, by wrapping up a framed sonogram picture.” Parents aren’t the only ones who are affected by the loss of a baby, it can be extremely difficult for kids to understand and process as well.
Obviously, from his response, his parents managed to give him the greatest gift he could ask for this year. “His reaction was heartwarming and more than I expected. I couldn’t record anymore at the end. I had to go and sit on the floor with him, and cry together. This baby is going to have the best big brother in the world, even with an 11.5 year age gap. I have a feeling they will be the best of friends.”
