Mother Finds Out She's Having A Boy - There Was One Heartbreaking Problem

Nicole and Trey were taken aback when they went in for a routine ultrasound. Nicole was 20 weeks pregnant when they found out they were having a boy. They also found out that their unborn child had a heart defect that would require surgery after he was born.

According to Shareably, the news was devastating for the couple.

“We probably spent the better part of a week crying, scared,” Nicole said in tears.

The prospect of having their newborn undergo open heart surgery was a lot for them to handle.

“I was devastated there was times we cried we didn't know what else to do,” said Trey. “I decided we needed to stop moping about this and we needed to be positive this with this.”

That’s when he came up with an inspiring nickname for his unborn son, The Tin Man after the character from the “Wizard of Oz.” He and his family even made shirt that read “I <3 Tin Man” and a photo of the movie character with the quote, “A heart is not judged by how much you love, but how much you are loved by others.”

Their son was born and eventually had open heart surgery.

“His surgery was the most nerve wracking day of my life,” said Trey.

Thankfully the serious surgery went well and the child is doing fine and prepared for future surgeries.
