Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian organisation, invited Pam Tebow to tell the story of her decision to keep her baby, a decision which has led to the success of NFL player Tim Tebow today as a quarterback for the Florida Gators. In the 30 second commercial Pam talks about her miracle baby, Timmy, and the need to be tough. The spot leads viewers to the Focus on the Family site where Bob and Pam Tebow are interviewed.

Tebow’s parents were living in the Philippines as missionaries when Pam Tebow contracted amoebic dysentery, then learned she was pregnant with Tim, her fifth child. Doctors told her that her placenta had detached from her uterine wall, a condition known as placental abruption, and recommended that she abort her fetus. Complications from a placental abruption can include the death of the fetus and the mother. But Tebow gave birth to a healthy son after spending the last two months of her pregnancy on bedrest. In 2007, he became the first sophomore to win the Heisman trophy.
The Tim Tebow spots were produced for Focus on the Family by creative director/copywriter/director/editor Stephen Vidano via Vidano Films, with creative director/copywriter Mark Waters, director of photography Brian Baugh, production coordinator Adrian Chynoweth (Production Coordinator), and with original music composed by Luke Atencio. Sound was mixed by Nate Jones. Post production was done at Crosspoint by conform Steven Lopez, and colorist Eric Anolin.
