College student grabs mom’s old notebook by accident—when she looks inside, she texts mom in tears

It’s funny how one simple, random accident can teach someone so much about life. A simple mix-up helped this young college student realize how precious her own life was … while her mom rediscovered just how much she loves her children.

Hailey Weiss, 19, was getting ready to return to the College of New Jersey for her sophomore year when her mom, Carrie, reminded her to take her school supplies from the basement. In a rush, she grabbed her mother’s spiral notebook, mistaking it for her own, and went off.

When Hailey opened the notebook, she found some strange stuff inside, including a curious “wheel” chart, with the months of the year on it, made out of colored cardboard.

The notebook was empty, but there were labels in her mother’s handwriting, which said: “Test Results,” “Referral,” etc.

The “wheel” turned out to be a gestation chart with a calendar to help women keep track of their fertility cycles, when they are trying to have a baby.

Hailey’s mother recalled: “Then she saw the calendars that came pre-printed in the notebook with the years 1995 to 1997 and found the due date calculator.”

Hailey caught on to what she was looking at and texted her mom in amazement: “The notebook I’m using for college helped you guys keep track of how to create me!”

“I like almost cried,” Hailey added.

“I am crying,” her mom said. “You are my miracle,” she added, before her daughter went off to class.

Carrie and her husband had battled with infertility issues for years when they first married. Carrie consulted doctors and specialists and had kept track of all the information needed to conceive in a notebook. She had completely forgotten about it after having conceived.

“It gave me a moment of pause,” Carrie said. “We miss her when she is at school, but we are all so connected. There’s a lot of pride about how we came to be a family and we all cherish it.”

This touching story reminds us that our arrival in the world was by no means something insignificant. Many factors had to be exactly in the right place for our birth to happen. Just being here is nothing short of miraculous.
