The latest recipient of Union Bank's Magic Moments is a young mother-to-be. She found out she was pregnant just two weeks after her boyfriend was killed in a car accident.

It has been a rough four months for Brooklyn Bohac, 20. Back in August, she and her boyfriend, Trevor, had just moved in together and were planning their future.

Those plans were halted when Trevor was tragically killed in a car accident. Two weeks later, Bohac learned she was pregnant.

"I was sad at first (about the pregnancy), but as I've come along the four months he's been gone, I've realized it is a blessing," said Bohac. "I wasn't in the car for a reason and the reason is the baby."

Being a single parent is not easy, which is why Union Bank wanted to help Bohac. They gave her a new crib, car seat, stroller, pack n' play, bouncer, jumper, high chair, blankets, diapers, and wipes. She also received gift cards for a day at the spa, and additional necessities.

She will also enjoy a memorial hand print of her new baby in honor of Trevor at the Lincoln Children's Zoo and a year-long membership.

The nomination for the Magic Moment came from Bohac's mother.

"I wanted to be able to find a way to show her we're all thinking about her and wanted to make it easier," said Kim Weis, Bohac's mother. "I'm just very proud of her."

Because this expectant mother is also passionate about photography and is going to school for it, Union Bank also gave her a gift card for a mommy and baby photo shoot. Bohac says she's overwhelmed by the support, but that doesn't make losing Trevor easier.

"My family and friends are being super awesome, but it's not something I'd ever think. Ever thought I'd face without him. And knowing that he'll never meet his child is a hard thing to grasp," said Bohac. "And I know he would've made a great dad."
