If it wasn't for a flight delay, this soldier would've been in the air when his daughter was born. Blessing in disguise.
When he called the wifey to see how was she was doing, she was dilated 5 centimerters soooo that baby was coming .... Due to a flight delay, Brooks Lindsey watched his child enter the world from an airport over FaceTime.
The heartwarming moment was captured by a fellow traveler on the same flight to Jackson, MS. "This Army soldier was on my delayed flight home yesterday to MS," Tracy Dover wrote on Facebook. "He had to watch the birth of his daughter on FaceTime.
He was crying and our hearts were breaking. We all gave him space. When we heard the baby cry, we all rejoiced for him. I wanted to share this because I never want us to forget about our soldiers who serve us everyday and the sacrifices they make.
"He called me as soon as that flight landed in Dallas at 2:38 central time and I was 5 centimeters dilated," Brooks' wife Haley told Love What Matters. "He was scheduled to take off at 3:55 but LUCKILY his flight was delayed to 5:45.
Without that delay Brooks would have been in the air and unable to FaceTime!"Brooks' mother secretly FaceTimed her son when Haley began to push. The doctor quickly realized what was going on.
