After a slow day at the station, a Myrtle Beach firefighter went on a call that would forever change his life. A women complaining of stomach pain developed into a serious call as the women began giving birth. “We got her some oxygen, started some IVs and literally as we were getting ready to leave the parking lot in the ambulance, my partner said, ‘We're about to deliver a baby right here.' We had no time to prepare. Before we could do anything — we hadn't even cut her clothes — Gracie came right out. Immediately she was handed to me."
Marc Hadden had been with the fire department for 20 years and never delivered a baby until this fateful day. They got the mom and baby to the hospital safely and both were doing well. Had that been the end of it, Hadden would have had a day he would not forget for a long long time. However, it turned into one he would remember with great clarity for the rest of his life.
Marc and his wife had been praying for a third child but were not being successful. At the hospital, Hadden learned that the mother wanted to put the baby up for adoption immediately. It was an answered prayer in the most unexpected manner. After talking to his wife, the Hadden’s brought Gracie home two days later, and she's forever part of their family now. We recognize you, Marc Hadden.
