This Father's Day will be extra special for the Mozeley family.
Mark Mozeley, 47, and his 27-year-old son Gary do everything together. They build docks and piers on Lake Norman for the South Iredell family business, Mozeley Construction.
After work they hang out, cook out and enjoy spending time with each other's families.
In October, Gary's wife Kristina, 26, gave birth to their first child, Austin.
Then, the family grew a little more last week as Mark's wife Beverly, 44, gave birth to little Hannah at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center.
Gary, meet your new sister. Austin, meet your Aunt Hannah. She's 10 days old.

Inconceivable recounts this journey from hopeless diagnoses to elated motherhood.

After eight caffeine-free, nutrient-rich, yoga-laden months, complemented by visualization exercises, Julia received amazing news; incredibly, she was pregnant.
Nine months later she gave birth to a healthy girl.
