    Like she said “ I wanted to finalize my journey with Josh.” Plans they would’ve had anyways.The dad was not being weird by saying “ My baby”. He was trying to help Mandy cope with her loss by being thete for her and giving her shots.When he said “ He’s hung.” He said THAT’S WHAT JOSH WOULD’VE SAID.Mandy is a young woman and everyone grieves differently. Same thing with the family getting tattooed. They loved this person tremendously and wanted him carried on through their tattoos.They’re not a strange family, but very loyal and living and involved. Maybe we from dysfunction can’t relate because they are so supportive of each other. Her getting another boyfriend may have been too soon, but everyone copes differently. There’s a lot of live for the new baby and when Kaven is older Josh’s mom will be glad that Mandy had him and carried on her son’s life.

      I feel like it is awesome that this kind of thing can be done, and I can't help but feel like God blessed Mandy with this baby because He allowed her to have him! My problem with it is, I felt like Mandy and her family were obsessed with Josh! The baby part, I can understand, but all the other stuff, they were acting way too obsessed about him! I hope Josh's parents r allowed to have a close relationship with Mandy and her child because they need that, and this is their son's child too, even if he isn't here anymore!

        The former mother-in-law says Mandy has a current boyfriend. Totally her life/business, if true but I wonder how he feels about all this? Or is he just a ‘hobby’? 😉

          How could I be taken without his consent. When they're married? It's not like they were just dating.

            Why is that mom talking about this in front of a CHILD.

              Don’t judge unless you’ve been in this situation. If you have prayers to you.

                Her parents and in-laws were so amassing and supportive what an awesome story, everyone handles there grief different, all these judgmental comments are really sad . Unless you've been in her shoes you have no right.

                  This was not the first time this event. has taken place. My family was the first to have post mortem sperm produce an actual living child. In 1995, California, my brother tragically passed away. Along With his wife, whom he had planned on starting a family with later on in the year that he died, our family contacted Cappy Rothman who is in this video, and he extracted sperm from my brother 30 hours post mortem. 3 years later, my niece was born.

                            Not the lords work. Stealing sperm from a man who is dying and getting inseminated after his death? Abomination! And just rude!

                                This girl seemed slightly delusional to be honest. At first she seemed to see her unborn child as a reincarnation of Josh. The baby was beautiful and healthy and I hope they all saw him as a completely different and unique person in his own right. I got the impression that the mother was used to getting her own way and a bit callous as she dumped her mother in law, who behaved which much dignity. The new boyfriend? So soon? Did she get a new boyfriend in order to make sure she has a financial provider....if I were him I might feel totally in second place to the baby and the constant reminder of Josh. I don’t think that relationship will last very long - but hopefully I am wrong!

                                  This is sweet, touching, weird, and a little unsettling. I'm not sure how something can make you feel all these things in one documentary.

                                      I totally understand her. She wanted a baby by Josh. It's just weird without his consent. Also life goes on. If she remarried she did it after he died. She can't dwell all her life. She has to continue and be happy so Josh's soul could move on.

                                            I'm happy for her that her son pregnancy and her son's birth had no complications. If anything had gone wrong she would have been devastated for the second time. I pray she allows her son to know Josh's family even when she develops a serious relationship.

                                                            Considering the post below mine I will refrain from reading them . But my comment is as long as she can provide for the child and doesnt rely on government assistance then it's Nobody else's decision. And I wish her all the Good Luck in the world. I am adding to my comment that it is so nice to see that her whole family was so in Love with him, it's not often you see that.

                                                              Becoming pregnant after your spouse has died is so selfish. Every child deserves the chance to know their father. Disgusting.
