Special deliveries don’t always come in the form of letters or packages. For Council Bluffs, IA, City Carrier Richard Danielsen, Jr., the newest member-to-be in his family was somewhat more eager to say hello than he anticipated.

Richard and his wife Nikki were expecting their fourth child when the moment of arrival drew near. They made all the necessary calls and departed for the birthing center shortly thereafter. Before they had traveled four miles down the road from their home, Nikki announced that their child was on its way.

Richard pulled over to the side of the road, exited the vehicle, and ran to the passenger side of the vehicle just in time to deliver his son. They continued their trip to the birthing center afterward and were in the midst of celebrating Aiden’s arrival into the world when the couple was told that Nikki had encountered life-threatening complications during the birth that needed to be addressed. An ambulance quickly raced them to the hospital in time to correct the problem. Nikki made a speedy recovery afterward, and the couple is now enjoying quality family time with their son.
