We all love to eat at Chick-fil-A and love what the company stands for. When I found out what they did for a mother who had to use the restroom after the store had closed I was speechless.
Robert and Falon Griffin had pulled into the Chick-fil-A parking lot when Falon, the mother in the story, needed to use the restroom all of the sudden. Once they got out of the car it all happened so fast. Robert Falon posted the story to facebook and it instantly went viral with over 75 thousand likes in 23 hours.

Here’s the story, as told by the father himself…
“Last night I delivered our baby girl IN THE BATHROOM AT A CHICK-FIL-A! Here’s what happened:
“Maggie and I loaded up the car last night to go to the hospital for delivery, and we were dropping off our daughters with a friend who was meeting us at Chick-Fil-A to pick them up. By the time we got to the restaurant , Maggie was in active labor and said she REALLY had to go to the bathroom. But it was after 10pm and Chick-Fil-A was closed. After banging on the glass, the staff answered the door and let Maggie in.”
“I loaded the kids into our friends car, kissed them goodnight, and went in to find Maggie. The manager said “she’s in the restroom and she’s screaming”. So there we were…..my wife and I in a tiny stall in the bathroom, and I could see the top of our little girls head crowning as maggie was straddling the toilet. I told Maggie, “sweetie, we are gonna have to do this right here, right now”. After shouting to the manager to call 911 and to bring any clean towels, Maggie and I started delivering our baby.”
“When she got to the shoulders, I realized the chord was wrapped around her neck TWICE. didn’t want to alert my wife, so just told her try to relax for a minute and I was somehow able to unwrap the chord from the baby’s neck.”
“With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin. Paramedics arrived 15 minutes later so we kept her warm by having the chick fil a staff warm up white towels in the kitchen and keep bringing them to us. We were also on speaker phone relating vitals to the first responders who were on their way.”
“For all the chaos, we all did amazing. Cut the chord while still in the bathroom, kept Gracie stable and mom calm, and it all worked out….not as planned, but everyone’s healthy. Her birth certificate reads “Born in Chick-Fil-A” and The hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician.”
“I thinks it’s pretty ironic that a proud conservative, Christian family would have a baby in a Chick-Fil-A, and wrapped in a Trump 2020 T-shirt! BOOM”
With the story going viral comes over 10,00 comments in less than 24 hours. They are just as amazing as the story itself. How the people are reaction is so powerful and fill my heart with joy!
We think it’s pretty cool that Chick-fil-A went above and beyond to help a family in need! America needs to hear more about stories like these. In a world where so much negativity is spread every day, it’s nice to have one like this come across my Facebook feed!
