TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Woman gives birth on U.S. Military Plane while being evacuated from Afghanistan

We’ve seen a lot of tragic news come out of Afghanistan in the last week.  Our hearts go out to the U.S. Marines who sadly lost their lives yesterday serving our country, as well as their families.

In between all the horrible headlines there are some good news updates here and there too. Like this story of a pregnant Afghan woman who was evacuated on a U.S. military plane last Saturday… and then GAVE BIRTH on the plane!

Her blood pressure dropped mid-flight so the pilot descended to a lower altitude, which helped save the mom’s life. The baby was born on the plane and they were both safe and healthy. She decided to name her daughter “Reach,” because the military call sign of the plane that saved her was “Reach 828.”

Amazing.
