20. STARTING A FAMILY
Breanna and Robert Lopez, both employed in the military had just managed to start their family as they’ve dreamed for many years.

18. UNEXPECTED CONTRACTIONS
It was a little over a week that Breanna started to experience some strange contractions… It was four months before her due date and she was sure that it was too early to experience such thing so she just assumed that it was something else, But the contractions were becoming more and more frequent and Breanna decided pay a visit to her doctor…

As it is usually done in this kind of situations but also because Breanna’s baby had some kidney problems, the doctors told her that her baby should stay in the hospital. It was its only chance to remain alive. Robert and Breanna paid their newborn baby a visit everyday, and they were spending whole days with it.
14. A NEW DISASTER
It was only a few weeks later when the Lopez family was struck again by bad luck… Robert’s car had just broke down while the couple was on their way to the hospital.

13. A MYSTERIOUS PASSENGER
One day Breanna’s friend Jody was driving them to the hospital when she stopped by at a gas station to pick up a mysterious woman. Jody explained that the woman was her friend Sara and asked the couple if they minded her joining them. The couple entirely focused on their child, didn’t spend much time thinking about it.
12. SARA WAS STRANGE
Even though Breanna’s mind was set on her child she noticed that Sara was behaving quite strangely. It appeared that she was anxious and sitting on the edge of her seat. She also caught her staring at them multiple times… What was going on?

The couple was confused to see Sara and Jody step out of the car and moving towards the hospital with them. They were sure that something was going on and Sara was becoming more and more strange as the minutes were passing by.
10. THE REVEAL
Upon entering the lobby the masks dropped… Sara, as Breanna had correctly assumed, wasn’t Jody’s friend. She was in reality a famous local reporter named Cassandra Jones. Cassandra had shared the ride with the Lopeses for a very moving reason.
9. THE CAR WAS TAPED
Cassandra admitted that there were hidden microphones as well as several cameras in Jody’s car that were recording through the whole ride. The couple felt a little bit intimidated but Cassandra explained that this was all because the wanted to capture and tell this heartwarming story for a good cause.

Cassandra revealed to the couple that there was a plan behind her actions with the code name: “Surprise Squad”. The local community was aware of the couple’s issue with their transportation to and from the hospital so Cassandra decided to run a crowdfunding campaign to do this.
7. A SPECIAL GIFT
Breanna swept into tears while hearing Cassandra explaining just how many people were willing to help the couple as much as they could. With the money raised by the crowdfunding, the “Surprise Squad” had just bought a very special gift for the couple.

The Lopeses collapsed when they saw a brand new Nissan Sentra waiting for them just behind their backs. It was just what they needed as on top of all their problems the transportation issue was a big one… But there was an extra surprise.
5. A SPECIAL BACKSEAT
Cassandra walked with the couple and introduced them to their new vehicle. The car was stunning but there was something inside of it that would brighten the couple’s day. There was a special seat in the back of the car, specially tailored for their child to ride with them safely.

Months after the ultimate gift that the couple received, more good news started coming their way. The doctors were happy to tell to the anxious couple that their son was finally recovering in a fast pace. The couple couldn’t be happier.
