Victoria Bradley was eager to have a child. She had been waiting for this beautiful blessing for a long time, so imagine her joy and happiness when she discovered she was pregnant! However, at only 24 weeks, the woman discovered that her gestation wasn’t be normal. She would have to give birth immediately, if she wanted to save her life and her daughter’s. The girl was born a few days after the limit allowed for abortion.
The emotional pregnancy made Victoria very anxious. She didn’t know if the baby would resist… she was so small and fragile. Doctors said she probably wouldn’t live long.
The mother called Francesca to the sweet and beautiful blessing. She had no idea that her little girl was about to become a miracle. The girl’s arrival in this world was so precocious that if it was only two days earlier, she could have been aborted. Although her drastically premature delivery was a shock to Victoria and the doctors, her mother expected her to survive.
Watching her, Francesca’s tiny hands and feet made the nurses marvel. According to Victoria, she looked at the small delicate body and couldn’t believe she was her daughter.
The girl’s mother was always beside her as she watched her struggle for various surgeries and medical procedures. She cradled her skin-to-skin, which is recommended for premature babies.
During the first months of Francesca’s life, no one thought she would survive. But after months of illness and recovery, see how she is now!
Francesca is a fighter and her story is an inspiration to us all: we should never give up, even if the odds are small! Share it if you agree.
