In the video, Mayci explains that in 2015, when she was 19 years old, she found out that she was pregnant. This was already a shock, but then a few weeks later, her boyfriend died in a terrible car crash. Mayci was only 14 weeks pregnant.
She writes, “It was so hard to keep going but I stayed strong for my son.” This text was overlaid onto a video of Mayci holding her son right after his birth.
Then things start to take a positive turn. Over a video of Mayci and her current husband relaxing at the beach, she writes, “A year and a half after my boyfriend’s passing, I met him…”
Mayci shows clips of her new boyfriend at the time playing with her son, and writes, “I wasn’t looking for a new relationship as I was still mourning, but I couldn’t help but fall for this man who loved me and accepted my son as his own.”
Over a beautiful video of Mayci’s husband proposing to her in a gorgeous field, she writes, “We got married & became a family.”
Then over a video of her now husband injecting Mayci with hormones, she writes, “We wanted to grow our fam but had some trouble… but with the help of IVF we got pregnant.” An adorable video of Mayci’s husband shows him reading the pregnancy test for the first time, excited to be a new dad!
