Broad-shouldered Marine Josh Newville and his girlfriend, Air Corporal Emily Lehan, decided to legitimize their relationship, for which they asked the command for a short vacation.
Then the newlyweds will have to return to the service, and even the honeymoon will not work out properly. So they tried to fit as many events as possible in the allotted time.
In particular, Emily prepared a special speech for Gage, Newville’s son from his first marriage. And it was a sentimental surprise for all the guests at the celebration.
After traditional ceremonies, vows and exchange of rings, the bride, and now a young wife, asked to speak.
Taking the microphone, she read out an appeal to 4-year-old Gage, for whom she officially became a mother. Or is it a stepmother? It’s not about the wording, but about the woman’s attitude to the child.
“I want you to be safe and do your best to be a good person. I hope you realize soon what a special boy you are. You are so smart, beautiful and kind, you helped me become who I am today. And even though I did not give you the gift of life, but life gave me a gift. It’s you”.
A strong move, and for a four-year-old boy who grew up without a mother, the ultimate dream.
Do we need to specify that his reaction was predictably touching?
Even the big dad-Marine shed a tear from the tenderness of this scene, to say nothing of the stunned guests. We are sure this family will have a good future filled with love.
