Ask any mother and they will tell you: doctors and science may think they have it all figured out, but when a baby wants to come…a baby wants to come! You can’t stop it. You can’t deny it. You can try, but in the end, you will be the one looking foolish as your child is born somewhere other than a hospital bed.
To Serve And Protect
Constable Mark Diebold Did Much More Than That
It used to be that birth was a natural and wholly unpredictable thing. Fast forward a couple of centuries and we now try to turn this act of biology into one of convenience. There are tests and drugs which are supposed to make the specific date of delivery a given, but as anyone can tell you nothing is certain when it comes to infants.
Just Ask Destiny Hall
So when Destiny Hall was going from her home to the hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, she could never have imagined that her child would be born in a gas station parking lot. The story goes a little something like this. After driving the 45 minutes from her home to the hospital, the medical staff turned her away. Even with all the pain she was in, they made it clear she was not in labor. So she headed home with her husband Caleb. Next thing you knew, she was headed back. She knew she was going to have this baby and nothing was going to stop her, not even Constable Mark Diebold.
