23 Year Old Became A Father & Grandfather In One Week!

Not many stories blow us away these days, but this one made us cry! 

And believe us when you read what Tommy Connolly has done for his cousin you will be blown away as well. 

Tommy Connolly was just a 23 year old college student, athlete, living his life one day at a time. 

 Training daily to be a champion sprinter, studying, working part-time & loving life. 

Until the day he received a Facebook message that changed his life forever. 

Long story short, he took in his cousin Angela who was homeless and pregnant and adopted her! 

You heard that right, adopted her! 

A week later, she gave birth to his grandson. 

But read his story for yourself, from his mouth below....

It's truly amazing and we have no words! 

"If it's one or two years of my life I have to put on hold, to make sure two lives are going to be saved, it's nothing at all."

-Tommy Connolly

 

On Facebook, the cousin said she was “the luckiest girl in the world”.

“Since carrying this gorgeous boy, all of my friends kept telling me that he would be taken away from me,” she said. “This made my pregnancy very difficult. All I wanted was to give this little man a better life than I had – a second chance was all I wanted. Thank-you, Tommy for everything, and for helping me with my spelling.”

 

Tommy's older brother, Liam set up a Gofundme page & it raised $50,000 to help the new family get started.
