WATCH: Baby Boy Abandoned At Hospital. What This Nurse Did Next Is Incredible.

Published

on

Can you imagine going into work one day and coming home an adoptive parent?

Seems like a pretty incredible occurrence, but for one ER nurse in San Bernardino, Joshua Kohls, he saw no other option when a baby boy was abandoned by his mother at the hospital where Kohls works.

“When he called to tell me that there was a baby left at the hospital, it was heartbreaking,” Joshua’s wife Robin recalled in a heartwarming video released by San Bernardino County.

In 2016, a precious, healthy baby boy named Logan was born in the labor and delivery unit of the hospital where Joshua works. When his mother, whose name has not been released, went outside to smoke a cigarette, Kohls says she never returned.

At first, when Robin got the call from Joshua, she thought the situation was “crazy,” but shares in the video that she “couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t cope with it… It just sat on my heart.”

“We prayed about it, and if it’s meant to be, we’re gonna leave it up to God,” Joshua said, recalling the decision to email little Logan’s social worker in the hospital in hopes of fostering to adopt.

Two days later, God made his next big move in uniting Logan to the Kohls family, Robin said. “To this day, I still have the voicemail saying, ‘we’re releasing him to you guys! Come to the hospital and come get him.’”

“I saw him and knew right then that he was going to be mine, and I was going to be part of his life,” Robin said, explaining her love for this baby boy at first sight. “Every night from that moment on, I would take him to bed and tell him, ‘I am so lucky to have you. I’m so lucky God put you in our life.’”

Robin and Joshua’s incredible love, from day one, for this little baby boy was as strong as if they’d brought him into the world themselves. “I will love him until the day I die, even if he doesn’t know who I am,” Robin said of the beginning of their fostering journey. “Right now, you’re with us, and I want you to know what love is.”

At that time, baby Logan’s future with the Kohls was still uncertain. Would he be placed in another home? Would another family seek to adopt him? In spite of this, Robin had such peace, telling the little boy every night that, if God saw fit to take him away from their family, she wanted him to know and “look at the stars every night and think, ‘there’s one person in this world that loves me.’”

Fast-forward to 2018, and you’ll find the Kohls family experiencing one of the happiest days of their life in, of all places, the San Bernardino County courthouse.

“Today means so much,” the couple said through tears in joyful unison. It was the day Logan finally, legally, became a Kohls. “It means that he’s forever going to be ours.”

“Even though he’s been ours in our heart, he’s been ours in our love,” Robin describes the day of Logan’s legal adoption as her “birth day” with him after “laboring with him” through two years of fostering.

Even Joshua and Robin’s young, biological son and daughter know how special that day is to the family. If you ask them, Robin says, they’ll tell you “today is the day we’re gonna adopt Logan and make him ours forever”

God tells us in his Word how much he cares for little ones and “the least of these” in society. Fostering and adopting is such a beautiful reflection of God’s love for the lost, the cast aside, the abandoned. We wish Logan and his family a blessed life together!

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
