Children are a parent’s greatest treasure. When it comes to their daughters and sons, a parent will do just about anything to protect their babies. But what happens when they’re not there to come to the rescue?
The unbreakable bond between loved ones is what keeps us all going. Family is the most precious gift of life. While it’s the job of fathers and mothers to keep their families safe, Macie Semrau, a 6-year-old girl from Maine, was able to step up to the plate when her dad needed it most. This story about a child hero is a heartwarming example of how beyond their years kids can be and how a human as young as a child can create miracles!
Just A Regular Morning
On the morning of April 12, 2022, the Semrau household woke up thinking that the day would be just another regular day. Kyle Semrau, the father of 6-year-old Macie and 4-year-old Caleb, was spending the day resting after working an overnight shift while his children played at home.
Kindergartner Macie should have attended school that morning. However, on this particular Tuesday, the feeling of missing her father kept her home. With Macie’s stellar attendance record, this decision was an unusual but very lucky one for the life and health of her loving father. The timing for this family asks the question: “coincidence or fate”?
