When Arkell Graves went to grab something out of the oven, he got the surprise of his life. Instead of a casserole or whatever he thought might be baking in there, he found a package of buns, and it was right next to an ultrasound picture.
Right away, he knew. “You’re pregnant,” he says repeatedly to his wife before having one of the sweetest, most emotional reactions ever. Before you watch, however, you should know what led up to this joyous moment.
According to WKRN, he and his wife, Dana Griffin-Graves, tried to have a baby for almost 17 years. During that time, they suffered four miscarriages and a stillbirth. So when she tells him that she’s already five months pregnant, his reaction makes all the sense in the world.
Infertility and pregnancy loss are some of those most challenging events in a couple’s life. So to see them get what they’ve yearned for after all these years is simply amazing. Many, many congratulations to this family.
