A couple injured in the Boston Marathon bombings welcomed a baby girl about 8 months after the terror attack. On Dec. 30, Mail Online reported that Caroline Reinsch, 39, and Christian Williams, 42, found out that they were expecting a baby after they were rushed to the emergency room following a bomb explosion near the finish line at the Boston Marathon in April of 2013. While focused on their injuries, Reinsch and Williams found out that they conceived a child two weeks prior.

According to the report, baby Marlowe was born on Dec. 18 -- six days early, but the best wish the couple could have asked for was granted: Marlowe is healthy.

The couple injured in the Boston Marathon believe their baby is a blessing -- like any other new parent -- but there is something very special about Marlowe's timing. While most people were seriously hurt, both physically and emotionally, after the bombings, Marlowe provided this couple with instant hope which was hard to find in such a dark time.

"'I don't think that Caroline or I view Marlowe's conception as a miracle. But, we do think that her timing was quite miraculous. When we could have been focusing on the hardships of recovery, we instead turned our attention on our future as a family. It was just what we needed," explained new dad, Christian Williams.

The Boston Marathon couple's baby helped Reinsch and Williams get through a very hard time -- and now Marlowe will be responsible for many more years of joy.
