Baby born on 7/11 at 7:11pm and weighing 7lbs 11ozs gets $7,111 from 7-Eleven
On each of my birthdays (January 9, if anybody was wondering), I get a lovely phone call from my mom who proceeds to tell me how my birth was a miracle and she's so happy she brought me into this world. And after 27 years, I used to believe all that spiel, until I read about this incredible birth.
I'm not usually a person who believes in "fate", but after reading this child's story, it's hard not to believe the stars did not align for baby J’Aime Brown.
Check out their incredible story in the video below:
In an astounding set of coincidences, this little girl from Missouri was born on July 11, at precisely 07:11 pm, weighing 7 lbs and 11 ozs, ABC News reported. And due to the fact this special little girl was born on the greatest US holiday of the year - 7-Eleven Day - the store chain decided to honor her with an incredible gift.
Now only were J’Aime’s parents - Rachel Langford and Johntez Brown - delighted to received a lovely hamper from 7-Eleven, containing adorable onesies, diapers, and other thoughtful gifts, but the convenience store giants also helped take a huge worry off Rachel and Johntez, with an incredible gift of $7,111 to put towards J’Aime’s college fund, CNN reports.
Any parents out there or anybody who's ever been to college will know first-hand how much pressure this amazing gesture will take away from the parents. "I was completely shocked," she told CNN. "I kind of just freaked out. It's hard for anybody to even get a trust fund for their children. To get a blessing like that, it just helps a lot."
And in another amazing turn of events, the parents say that J'Aime mostly eats and sleeps and doesn't cause much fuss at all: "Since the baby's been here, strangely, we've been calm, getting more stuff done. We've been feeling really good."
If I was these lucky parents, I'd go out and buy a lottery ticket!
