Leaving the hospital after 60 days spent in a neonatal intensive care unit is a cause for celebration! In fact, Bodie Blodgett received a very special graduation ceremony and was dressed in a cap and gown on his last day at the NICU at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The little boy's family carried him through the hallway surrounded by his doctors and nurses that helped him transform from a baby unable to breathe on his own to a thriving 2-month-old being able to leave and go home for good. Such an amazing moment!

Mom-To-Be Hears Late Father's Voice During Gender Reveal

Mom-To-Be Hears Late Father's Voice During Gender Reveal

We've seen all types of gender reveals here at RTM, but this may be one of the most sentimental ones. Ana's mother Jennifer Jones-Prothro is pregnant and wasn't planning on finding out the gender of the new baby unless her husband really put something creative together. It turns out, her loving hubby James went above and beyond, piecing together voice recordings of Jennifer's late father Charlie revealing it was a girl. Charlie passed away a year ago and always liked to be surprised by learning the gender of Jennifer's children, so this idea was especially poignant, according to CNN. my mom is pregnant and didn’t want to know the gender unless my dad found a creative way of letting her know... so he put together clips of my granddad’s voice (who passed away a year ago) to announce it to her :’) pic.twitter.com/wYV2GMDHeW — ana (@anaxyoung) August 23, 2018 View Now
Dad Entertains Son Battling Leukemia

Dad Entertains Son Battling Leukemia

It's always difficult to understand why people, especially children, have to deal with cancer. Kennith "Clutch" Thomas' 15-month-old son Kristian was recently in the hospital for 32 days after being diagnosed with leukemia. Kristian was born with Down syndrome and a blood disorder, and doctors had previously told the family he could develop leukemia at any point, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. After finding out that Kristian could finally go home from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, dance instructor Kennith wanted to celebrate. Taking inspiration from his son's battle and singer Ciara, Kennith set out to cheer up and entertain Kristian to the tune of Ciara's new song "Level Up."  Kennith and wife Josilyne also coincidentally have a dance studio named "The Level Brand."   When you wake up to your sons number LEVELS UP!! And we get to go home for a few days as he is killing CANCER!! TAG @ciara this song right on time #GODSPLAN #fightkristian #fightcancer #FIGHTLEUKEMIA #locking #dance #love #son #fatherandson #levelupchallenge A post shared by Kenny Clutch (@kennyclutch_) on   Jul 21, 2018 at 9:28am PDT The story even got the attention of Ciara herself! The song is a dance and personal challenge, asking those taking part to think of three ways to better themselves in life. Kristian has already proved himself to be a warrior though, and we are completely inspired by the strength of the entire family!   My can’t take it watching this proud Father @KennyClutch_ dancing doing the #LevelUpChallenge because his baby’s numbers were up. God is so good! We’re dancing for you too angel! Let’s #LevelUp against Cancer together! A post shared by Ciara (@ciara) on Jul 22, 2018 at 11:19am PDT View Now
Hospital Hosts Free Baby Shower For Deserving Moms

Hospital Hosts Free Baby Shower For Deserving Moms

While it may seem like a normal thing to have a baby shower, it's often a luxury for many soon-to-be moms. To provide some relief to expectant mothers and give them a chance to celebrate, the St. Bernard Hospital in Chicago decided to throw a massive baby shower. More than 100 deserving women from a high-poverty neighborhood showed up, and all received gifts to take home. Evelyn Jones is the vice president of Nursing Services at the hospital and devised the idea last year, according to ABC News. She spent about $1000 of her own money this year, but it's definitely worth it to provide attendees with the only chance they may have to have a baby shower. via Good Morning America   View Now
