Find out why a solid support system is so important in your weight-loss journey.
I am disappointed as I could not hear the video. My computer volume was up. I tried mute and unmute on the video. Nothing worked and I don't read lips. :0(
How wonderful that they had family and friends to support them. Thank you for sharing your story.
Oh, my gosh! That's what I had after giving birth to my 3rd child. I didn't realize how serious it was. I was also was soon a single mom shortly after her birth. I just remember a lot of pain, help from my family--and the nurses spoiling my daughter rotten by the time I got out of the hospital. :D
Beautiful family! You should thank God everyday for your healing and for your family!
Great Video! Beautiful family! :)
What an awesome video!
This just goes to show how important it is to have family support. Thanks for this heartwarming video.
What a heart warming story.
Thanks for sharing this heartwarming story. God bless.
Blessings to this family.
Great Video. Beautiful story. I am so happy that everything worked out in that family's life.
My prayers and blessing to the family and friends and God.
That is not something you hear about happening every day to somebody. Scary.
A beautiful story. God and a Family...such anchors.
Something to remember, a supportive family and good friends are a blessing and a gift.
