A new stepmom made the 4-year-old son of her Marine husband break down in tears over the weekend. No, this is not one of those “evil stepmother” stories – quite the opposite, in fact.
US Marine Corps Sergeant Joshua Newville married Senior Airman Emily Leehan and, along with saying her vows to Newville, Leehan also recited vows to his son, Gage, as he stood at the altar with his father. Her loving words prompted little Gage to burst into tears and rush to hug his new stepmom in an emotional moment that is going viral.
Her beautiful vows to her new stepson:
I want you to be safe and to try your hardest and to be a good person.
I know that you and I will butt heads, but I hope that with all my heart, that as you become grown man you will understand my methods and realize I have only done what is best for you and that I love you.
The last thing thing I hope you learn is that you are a special boy. You are so extremely smart, handsome, and kind to others. You have helped shape me into the woman that I am today and I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you.
What a powerful statement of love between all three of them!
Watch the heartwarming moment below – and have the tissues ready!
The honeymoon is postponed because both husband and wife are still on active duty at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Trenton, New Jersey.
Best wishes to the happy family and thank you for your service to our country!
