A woman who was told her baby would likely not survive and was advised to abort her child before she was born, defied the odds and gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl earlier this month.
A Facebook post from Brisbane Birth Photography in Australia described the "Christmas miracle" that took place when a family was told that their baby had a genetic condition that gave her "between a few hours and young adulthood to live." Told to abort the baby, the mother nonetheless went ahead with the pregnancy.
Upon the birth of the young girl, the family learned "to the shock of doctors, nurses and well....everyone involved really.....that she was perfectly healthy."
"There are no words," the birth photographers wrote in response to the incredible story.
