A Miracle is Born

After being born at only 26 weeks, Miracle's survival lived up to her name. Read Transcript


IT WAS A LONG ULTRASOUND.

THEY JUST LOOKED AND THEY

STARED.

SO THAT KIND OF MADE A RED

FLAG.

WHAT'S THE MATTER?

Reporter: THIS COUPLE

CAME TO THE DOCTOR'S

APPOINTMENT EXCITED TO SEE

THE IMAGE OF THEIR SECOND

BABY.

THEY NEVER IMAGINED THE

ULTRASOUND WOULD REVEAL

ALARMING NEWS.

DO YOU SEE THAT OPENING?

LOOK AT HER HEAD.

ALL THE BONES ARE NOT FUSED

TOGETHER.

Reporter: THE TWO

OPENINGS IN THE SKULL WERE

JUST THE BEGINNING OF BAD

NEWS.

THERE IS A HOLE IN THE

HEART BECAUSE THERE ARE TWO

OUTLETS THAT THIS BLOOD IS

RUNNING THROUGH, AND THERE

SHOULD ONLY BE ONE.

Reporter: AND THE FINAL

BLOW, THE ULTRASOUND SHOWED

THAT THE BABY'S SPINE WAS

CURVED.

I SAID TO MYSELF, NO.

WE ARE CHRISTIANS.

I'M A PASTOR.

THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO

HAPPEN TO ME.

Reporter: KNOWING THEIR

CHILD FACED MULTIPLE HEALTH

PROBLEMS, THE COUPLE PUT

THEIR FAITH IN GOD THAT

THEIR BABY WOULD BE BORN

HEALTHY.

JUST HANGING ON TO GOD

THAT YOU CAN'T DISAPPOINT

US.

AND ALL OUR EGGS ARE GOING

TO BE IN YOUR BASKET.

WE HAVE NOTHING ELSE.

I HAD A CHOICE TO MAKE.

I'M GOING TO BELIEVE GOD,

THAT GOD IS GOING TO TURN

THIS AROUND FOR HIS GLORY.

Reporter: BUT TO

COMPLICATE MATTERS, MIRACLE

CAME THREE MONTHS EARLY,

WEIGHING ONLY ONE POUND,

SEVEN OUNCES.

A TEAM OF SPECIALISTS

QUICKLY WENT TO WORK TO SAVE

MIRACLE'S LIFE.

I WAS PICTURING THE

LORD'S HAND, WORKING WITH

THE DOCTORS, GUIDING THEM,

AND JUST WATCHING OVER HER.

SHE WAS BARELY BIGGER

THAN A DOLLAR BILL.

SHE WAS THAT TINY.

I TOLD MY HUSBAND, IS SHE

BREATHING?

AND HE SAID YES.

AND I SAID, IS SHE OKAY?

HE SAID, I DON'T KNOW, BUT

SHE IS REALLY TINY.

Reporter: MIRACLE'S

PROGNOSIS WAS BLEAK.

SHE HAD DIFFICULTY BREATHING

AND HAD A HOLE IN HER

HEART.

HER SKULL WAS NOT FUSED, A

CONDITION KNOWN AS

ENSELFELSO.

AND HER SPINE WAS CURVED.

PROBABLY WITH HER

PROBLEMS, THE CHANCES OF

GETTING THROUGH ALL OF THAT

WERE PROBABLY LESS THAN

10%.

Reporter: AS DAYS

TURNED TO WEEKS, THE DOCTORS

SAID EVEN IF MIRACLE LIVED,

SHE FACED SEVERAL SERIOUS

HEALTH PROBLEMS.

EACH DAY, WHEN WE WENT TO

VISIT WITH MIRACLE, THERE

WAS A DOCTOR SAYING I'M NOT

SURE HOW MUCH SHE'LL BE ABLE

TO DO, HOW UPRIGHT SHE'LL BE

ABLE TO STAND.

THEY EVEN QUESTIONED MENTAL

RETARDATION.

Reporter: THEY REFUSED

TO BELIEVE THE DOCTORS'

REPORTS.

I KNOW OF ANOTHER DOCTOR

THAT HAS NEVER LOST A CASE.

HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST.

SO WHEN THEY CAME WITH THEIR

NEGATIVE REPORTS, WE NEVER

SAID ANYTHING.

WE JUST LISTENED TO THEM

BECAUSE UNDERNEATH OUR

BREATH WE KEPT SAYING, I

WILL BELIEVE THE REPORT OF

THE LORD.

I WILL JUST TALK TO HER,

HONEY, I'M FIGHTING AND

DADDY IS FIGHTING, BUT I

NEED YOU TO FIGHT BECAUSE

THIS IS A BATTLE WE CAN ALL

WIN.

JUST HANG IN THERE.

JUST HANG IN A LITTLE

LONGER.

WE'LL GET THERE.

WE'LL GET THERE.

Reporter: THEY

CONTINUED TO PRAY FOR A

MIRACLE EVERY DAY, AND SO

DID THEIR FRIENDS AND

FAMILY.

PEOPLE THAT WE ASKED TO

PRAY FOR MIRACLES, WE KNEW

THEY WERE PRAYING PEOPLE.

WE WERE NOT LOOKING FOR

SOMEBODY THAT WOULD APPEAL

US AND SAY, DON'T WORRY, GOD

WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER ONE.

WE KNOW GOD WILL GIVE US

ANOTHER ONE, BUT WE WANT

THIS ONE TO LIVE.

Reporter: ONE OUNCE AT

A TIME, MIRACLE GOT

STRONGER.

THE TURNING POINT FOR US,

FOR ME, WAS WHEN THE TUBES

STARTED COMING OFF.

WHEN THEY WERE ABLE TO WEAN

HER OFF THE VENTILATOR, AND

THEY TOOK OUT HER FEEDING

TUBE, AND SHE HAD STARTED

GAINING WEIGHT.

AND I THINK THE MOST

EXCITING DAY THAT TURNED

THIS WHOLE HOUSE UP SIDE

DOWN WAS WHEN THEY CALLED

AND SAID, YOU CAN BRING

CLOTHES FOR MIRACLE.

SHE CAN WEAR CLOTHES NOW.

Reporter: FOUR MONTHS

LATER, MIRACLE WENT HOME.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, SHE HAD TWO

SURGERIES, ONE TO FIX THE

HOLE IN HER HEART, AND ONE

TO FIX HER SKULL, AND HER

SPINE STRAIGHTENED ON ITS

OWN.

YOU THINK IN THE BACK OF

YOUR MIND, THEY WERE RIGHT

IN THEIR STRONG BELIEFS, AND

THAT SURELY HAD SOMETHING TO

DO WITH IT AS WELL.

Reporter: THE LITTLE

GIRL WHO WASN'T SUPPOSED TO

LIVE A NORMAL LIFE IS A

HEALTHY 6-YEAR-OLD.

IT WAS JUST PURE JOY,

WATCHING HER DO WHAT OTHER

KIDS DO, AND WATCHING HER DO

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAID SHE

PROBABLY WON'T BE ABLE TO

DO.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL TO WATCH.

ONE OF THE DOCTORS SAID

IT BEST.

HE SAID, WOW, YOU KNOW, THAT

NAME MIRACLE, IT'S REALLY

WORKING FOR HER.

SHE IS A MIRACLE.

AND WE JUST SAY, WE SERVE A

MIRACLE-WORKING GOD.
