CLEVELAND — Welcome to the first full week of October- its time to smile! Here is your weekly dose of only good news.
First up- a story close to our hearts here at 3News! Former digital producer Stephanie Metzger just got married to long-time boyfriend Patrick Lawrence, despite waiting almost a whole year thanks to COVID-19. They traveled to Greece to make things official- but the celebrations didn't stop there.
What's better- they made it U.S. official back home in University Heights- and got a whole day dedicated to them in the city! Watch the video to find out why.
Over to Cincinnati- where a tragic situation became beautiful. A 10-year-old boy was recently hit by a stray bullet while playing video games, and that was something the Cincinnati police department couldn't just handle as a simple investigation. They made a personal visit to the boy's home to deliver a gift basket full of toys to help him feel better. Check out the video to see the moment they showed up.
And speaking of police officers, many little kids grow up wanting to be them. But one 7-year-old got the chance, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation! They let him live out his dream by swearing him in for a day. You have to hear the full story.
We're also featuring a great story from our friend Lindsay Buckingham. She recently profiled 82-year-old Elizabeth Brownlee and 86-year-old Lonnie Reid. The two found each other- and found love- later in their life. But true love is always right on time, and they are smitten. You have to hear how Elizabeth talks about her new beau!
