Little Grace completed their family.

A firefighter who had to deliver a baby during an emergency call out has now adopted the little girl.

Marc Hadden said there was no time to get the mother to the hospital when he responded to the emergency call.

Marc helped deliver the baby who was immediately put up for adoption and it was then he and his wife Beth decided to adopt.

The couple already had two sons but had been told it wasn’t possible for them to have more babies.

Says Marc: ‘We had it in our minds and in our hearts for years to adopt and we just left it in God’s hands. We said if it’s meant to be, it will be.’
