MiraclesDonnie 3 months old and weighed 2 pounds[/caption] Do you believe in miracles? I do and here is one of the reasons why.
My son, his name is Donnie and he is 2 years old, he will be 3 on January 15th and he is such a little miracle.
Donnie was born at 23 weeks gestation he weighed 1 pound 2 ounces (a micro preemie) and the doctors told us he that was probably going to die. There was an 85 % chance he would not survive. He was on the strongest breathing machine possible, and his little eyes were still sealed shut, but we had faith that he would make it. There were a couple of nights that things did not look good, and the doctors kept asking us to consider turning off the machines that were keeping him alive. They suggested that i could hold my son as he passed away, but we simply could not and would not do it.
I can’t really explain it in words but i knew he would be okay.
I can’t tell you how many nights they said he would not make it to the next morning, and i would cry and pray and beg God to heal him, and for him to give me strength, and he did. Donnie had to have 6 abdominal surgeries, because his intestines kept rupturing, he had to have a colostamy bag, and had 4 draining tubes all at once, plus 1 heart surgery to close a valve, and eye injections because he had rop, and most of this was before he even weighed 2 pounds. But finally the day came six months later when he got to come home and weighing in at a staggering 6 pounds. That was one of the happiest days of my life and that is the reason that no one will ever convince me that miracles dont happen. So do you believe in miracles? Have you ever experienced a miracle? If so i would love to hear about it.
