We all know Christmas is the traditional time for miracles, but thankfully they aren’t always unique to the festive season.

Miracles happen across the world the whole year round and ones which involve children are the most special of all.

This year, families and parents across the globe experienced real-life miracles and now is the time to celebrate them!

Miracle baby boys

Just weeks after his birth, baby boy Jack Jones was tragically diagnosed with Vein of Galen Malformation, a condition which affects just one in 5 million people. However, the little boy was saved by doctors who used a medical form of superglue to relieve pressure in his brain. Brave Jack made a full recovery thanks to this miracle glue!

Joshua Fuda was born in October despite his mum Cindy being told she would never conceive as a result of suffering from auto-immune disease Lupus Nephritis. Joshua’s arrival isn’t the only miracle experienced by the Fuda family, however, as Cindy gave birth to their other miracle baby, Isaiah, four years previously!

Rachel Collins and Tyler O’ Driscoll were advised to terminate Rachel’s pregnancy when doctors learned at 20 weeks that her unborn son had a very slim chance of survival. The couple went against doctor’s advice and ten weeks later, baby boy Alfie was born by Caesarean section and miraculously suffered no health complaints!

After trying to conceive for fifteen years and tragically suffering thirteen miscarriages, Ayshia Zaman and husband Haider welcomed their long-awaited, happy, healthy six pound son Awais into their lives in July of this year!

Miracle baby girls

Baby girl Angel Noemi Quiles miraculously survived after her mother gave birth to her just four hours after waking from a two-week coma. Angel’s mother Jenny was hit by a tow truck on the way to a doctor’s appointment in Florida and lost consciousness, but thankfully her little girl held on and was born by Caesarean section weighing a healthy 6 lbs.

The baby daughter of a woman, who was tragically killed by an Israeli air strike, was delivered safe and well ten minutes after her mother was pronounced clinically dead. The resilient little girl was dubbed ‘a miracle’ by Dr. Fadi Al-Khrote, who tended to her and her mother. Infants in utero are not expected to live for longer than five minutes after the death of their mother.

Baby Chloe Bennett, who was diagnosed with a heart defect while still in the womb, underwent and survived two major operations, one of which took place when little Chloe was a mere three hours old. The brave little girl was born with a ‘back to front’ heart, but her determination and the expertise of doctors means that Chloe celebrated her first Christmas this year!

A baby, referred to as ‘Chopstick Girl’ has miraculously survived despite weighing just 23 ounces and measuring just 11 inches in length at her birth in November. The baby girl’s premature delivery at 23 weeks was as a result of a procedure carried out on her mother’s cervix. Doctors in China had advised the woman that her child may not survive the procedure, but the little girl defied all odds!

Miracle kids

A couple from Co. Limerick, who suffered through four miscarriages, celebrated this Christmas in the company of their four seven-month-old babies, Amelia, Mollie, Lily-Grace and Lucas! Speaking about their four beloved arrivals, proud parents, James and Grace said: “The babies are our Christmas miracles- we are blessed.”

The mother of a 12-year-old boy from Washington named William Thomas recently learned that all her son wanted for Christmas was to receive some post, so she initiated an online campaign on his behalf. William, who suffers from autism, then went on to experience his own little miracle when he began receiving mail from people around the world who wanted him to know he was included, cared for and loved.
