Another day, another video forwarded – right? Nope. Not this one. This video led me to chills followed by tears.
Here is the story of Kelsey Nicole Dinger. Born on May 13, 2008 – she is a miracle baby.
When Kelsey Nicole arrived, she was not breathing and had no heartbeat.
After working on her for 20 minutes, after a time when doctors typically would of stopped – her heart started to beat. Watch her story: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B38_UvTOAvM[/youtube]
Two of our children were born with umbilical cords around their necks requiring immediate action from the medical staff. Those tense moments immediately following their births as we waited for their first scream, still makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it. We had a few minutes of prayer before knowing our babies were okay. Kelsey Nicole’s parents had 20 minutes of waiting to see if their daughter would live. Then after she was brought back to life, there were the days of not knowing if an experimental treatment would work, nor if their baby would suffer from brain damage.
Through hope, prayer and modern day medicine the treatment worked. This child survived and had no brain damage. She’s a miracle.
Wherever your faith is, I hope this video gives you hope. Miracles DO happen. No, unfortunately not all prayers are answered. But the story of Kelsey Nicole Dinger will hopefully bring a little glimmer to your day, like it did mine.
