US boy has heartwarming reaction to discovery he will finally be a big brother
Footage from Illinois, United States, has captured the heartwarming moment a boy discovered he was finally going to become an older brother. Sammy had spent several birthdays wishing for a sibling before the news was revealed to him in a riddle on a special shirt. Sammy’s mother, Maria Spohn, had always wanted to have another child but struggled to conceive due to medical complications.
After spending several years overcoming medical challenges, Maria was finally able to begin seeking out fertility specialists in hopes of making Sammy’s dreams come true. As fate would have it, Maria found out that she was pregnant the week she was supposed to start her fertility treatments.
Excited to tell Sammy, she immediately ordered a shirt to assist in revealing the good news. Although Sammy did need a little bit of help from his parents to solve the riddle, he was quickly overcome with joy. After nearly seven years his wish for a sibling finally came true!
Speaking about the video Maria said: ‘Ever since we had my son Sammy we wanted another child, but it took me a while to get pregnant. Meanwhile Sammy started wishing on his birthday candles that he would get a sibling.
So, I finally made the decision to have a procedure and lose weight. I did not want to risk not being able to have another baby soon, so we also sought out fertility treatment. I actually found out the week I was supposed to start my fertility treatments.
We were so excited to tell Sammy that his wish was finally coming true. I knew he would be happy. He's been wishing for so long. He is still super excited and doesn't care if it's a boy or girl.'
