Newlyweds in their twenties, Derek and Emily dreamt of parenthood with a kid-filled home.
For six years, pregnancy eluded Derek and Emily.
One afternoon, during the summer of 2019, Emily gives Derek miraculous news “You’re going to be a Dad.” Infinite joy unleashes.
Six months later, it’s January 2020, right before the Covid-19 pandemic erupts.
Emily’s textbook perfect pregnancy progresses.
Just three months until the due date, but something isn’t right.
Emily has breast pain. Prescribed antibiotics can’t fix it. Emily is biopsied.
Derek and Emily fear the worst because Emily’s OB/GYN insists on delivering biopsy results in person.
They receive a heartbreaking diagnosis.
Courageous Emily starts the biggest fight of her life, for their unborn son, and herself.
This challenging three-part story tests faith, shouts courage and resilience, and how Derek picks up the pieces and forges his new life as a widowed young Dad with a two-year-old son.
