Glow Wilson's four-year-old son, Bryce, melted his mama’s heart when he let her know how much he needed her. She was three days into a hospital stay and awaiting the birth of her sixth child when Bryce came to see her.
Bryce didn’t intend for this to be an ordinary visit — he came prepared to convince his mom that he immediately needed her back home and that she could delay the birth for another day. “It felt so wonderful hearing what he was saying, I felt I just had to record it,” Wilson, 35, from North Hills, California.
Wilson recorded Bryce’s message and posted it on Instagram, where it went viral. “We need you. We need our mama. We need you to stay alive and we don’t want nothing to happen to you,” Bryce tells his mom in the video. Then, Wilson tries to remind Bryce why she is there in the first place.
“That’s why I’m in the hospital, so they can take out your sister, and I can come home after they take her out,” Wilson says. She then tries to comfort Bryce, all while holding back tears, by reminding him he stills has his siblings and father at home. “I don’t need no brothers, I don’t need no dad. I just need you!” he says without hesitation.
“I cried while I was recording it, but I tried to stay as strong as possible because I wanted to convince him I was going to be okay,” she said. “At the same time, I was really scared to see that it was touching him like that. Thinking about it right now makes me want to cry.” Then next day, Glow gave birth to a baby girl named Dream. Looks like Bryce didn’t have to wait long for his mom to come home.
“Bryce really has an awesome personality,” Wilson says. “He is always affectionate, and hopefully everyone can get to see him for who he is all the time.”
