Marc and Beth Hadden were blessed with two sons, Will and Parker. The South Carolina couple desperately wanted another baby, but doctors told them they were unable to conceive another child.
The couple realized adoption was the best path forward, but they “left it in God’s hands” for the time being. Years went by without adopting a baby.
“We said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it will be,’” Beth recalled.
Not only is Marc a husband and father, he also works as a fireman and part-time police officer for the city of Myrtle Beach. One evening, he and his crew arrived on scene for what they thought would be a rather normal emergency call: A woman was in labor, but there was no time to get her to the hospital.
Marc eventually ended up delivering the woman’s baby.
Overflowing with happiness and excitement, Marc called Beth to tell her the amazing news. Delivering the child gave him so much joy.
But then Marc learned that the baby girl, named Grace, had immediately been put up for adoption. He and Beth realized this was the strangest and most touching twist of fate imaginable.
Two days later, the unthinkable happened. Watch the video below to meet the Hadden family, and be inspired by this happy twist of fate!
For Matthias Nebel the choice was easy. From the moment he planned on auditioning to the time he decided what song to perform, he knew what to do to force the coaches to turn around for him.
And with how well he has performed on stage, the judges didn’t really wait for his last note before all of them pressed their buttons. The moment Matthias unleashed the rocker in himself, the judges got lost in his performance. They were singing along and were clearly having a great time!
Matthias performed one of Bon Jovi’s most popular songs “Bed of Roses.” Hearing the first few notes of the song, the judges have already shown interest in Matthias. And when he reached the higher parts of the song, two of the judges instantly hit their buttons. The other two didn’t wait that long to press theirs either.
Seeing all four judges turned, Matthias’ band mates, stepbrother, and father were all ecstatic. They were happily cheering him on. Matthias ended up with coach Michael Patrick Kelly who also happened to be a huge Bon Jovi fan.
“Bed of Roses” was officially released as a single in 1993 by the American rock band Bon Jovi. It was written by the band’s lead Jon Bon Jovi in a hotel room. Considering the band’s success as a glam metal band during the 1980s, the release of this single gave them a newer and more mature sound. Its power ballad style made them a lot more popular and the song instant reached the Billboard Hot 100’s 10th spot.
Bon Jovi have produced songs that made waves worldwide. Some of their popular songs include “Livin’ On A Prayer”, “You Give Love a Bad Name”, “Always”, “Bad Medicine”, “I’ll Be There for You”, and “It’s My Life.”
Matthias, also known as Matt Valentine, has an intense passion for music. He performs as a rock singer and goes on tours with his band in Austria. He works as a lifeguard and community servant.
Matthias’ performance is truly a delight for any rock and Bon Jovi fan.
