10-year-old Jayden Fontenot is being called a hero for doing something incredible. Last Friday Jayden's mom, Ashly Moreau, unexpectedly went into labor at only 34 weeks pregnant. She was home with Jayden and something felt off.
She went to the bathroom and realized not only did her water break, but her baby was in breech. She could feel the babies legs already out and knew she only had minutes to save her and the baby. She called for Jayden to go get his grandma who lives next door. His grandma was unable to help and instead called 911. Jayden quickly came back to help his mom in the mean time. Ashley knew at this point she only had minutes. Jayden also said he would help her with anything she needed.
Then, Ashley had Jayden slowly pull out the baby each time she pushed. Just before the paramedics arrived, the baby had safely been delivered but was not breathing. Ashley then had Jayden go get a nasal aspirator from the other room to clear the babies nose. Moments later the baby was breathing on its own and the paramedics took it from there.
Thanks to Jayden's bravery his baby brother arrived safely and his mom stayed alive. What a miracle! Jayden is a true hero to his entire family! God bless!
The mother of a 5-year-old boy with autism witnessed something amazing when her son met his autism service dog, Tornado, for the first time. And if you've ever questioned whether animals are a gift from God, this beautiful story proves it!

As parents, we always want to fix things for our kids. But there are some things we just can't fix. So, it was heart-wrenching for this mom to watch her 5-year-old son struggle because of his autism, knowing she was unable to "fix it."
But then her son met Tornado, his autism service dog.
Their connection was instant. It was unlike anything his mom had ever witnessed. It was so beautiful she couldn't help but cry. And after reading her emotional post on Facebook, you'll likely need a few tissues, too!
"See this moment? I've never experienced a moment like this.
Yesterday was the first day my 5 year old Autistic son met his new Autism Service Dog, Tornado. We are Americans that live overseas in Japan and have prepared for nearly two years to meet Tornado.
This picture captures the face of a mother who saw her child, who she can't hug, wash, dress, snuggle and touch freely lay on his new Service dog of his own free will, with a purposeful, unspoken attachment.
This is the face of a mom who has seen her son experience countless failed social interactions on the playground in an attempt to have a friend.
She has sat with her son while he has cried at night for months because he has no consistent connections outside of the family no matter how hard he tries and no matter what he works hard on in his Autism therapies. It doesn't transfer to the natural occurring world for him.
And now she is sitting behind her son silently watching this moment, with the air sucked from her lungs, and no words to say.
It's worth every fight for services for my son, every diagnosis, every new provider, every dollar spent, every paper filled out, every school meeting, every shed tear, every step forward, every step back, and every wonder of the unknown future. Somehow because of this - because of Tornado - I know everything will be okay.
As a mother, I have seen countless challenging and painful moments my son has encountered and cried countless more. Yesterday however, I cried for a different reason. It is a feeling that is indescribable."
What a beautiful gift. God sends each of us special angels. And sometimes those angels just so happen to be furry!
