The Boston Marathon bombings were full of horror and shock and devastation -- but for at least one couple, that terrible day was also full of unexpected and indescribable joy. Caroline Reinsch and Christian Williams were just feet from the finish line and both were seriously injured and rushed to the hospital, where Williams would end up undergoing six operations to save his leg. Caroline had a hole in her thigh and a torn quad muscle. While at the hospital, however, she found out some news she wasn't quite expecting but that turned the horrible day into a beautiful one: Caroline was told she was pregnant.
... The couple had been trying to conceive for almost a year with no luck when they were at the marathon to cheer up a friend. After the blasts, both were rushed to separate hospitals. While at the emergency room, Caroline was asked if there was any chance she was pregnant and she replied she did not think so. She and Christian had pretty much given up hope of that.
... Caroline spent 11 days in the hospital and then went to reunite with her boyfriend at his hospital. A few days later, Caroline's doctor called her to talk about her discharge papers and told her some stunning news -- her pregnancy test had shown a slight positive. He suggested she take another one at home. She did and that one was positive too. She then took a final one in the hospital restroom where she went to visit her boyfriend. Then she handed him a positive stick.
