Miracle Baby Born Weighing Less Than a Pound

Seven-month-old Noelle Christine Aguiar already is melting hearts.

This beautiful little girl was born weighing less than a pound. Doctors predicted that she would not survive – first in the womb and then in her earliest stages of life.

But today Noelle is a smiling, thriving miracle of life. Now weighing six pounds, seven ounces, Noelle is finally out of the hospital and home with her parents.

Her mother reflects on the long, uncertain months that they faced: “When she smiles, it makes all of it worth it. Every IV, every blood stick, every surgery. That smile erases it all away.”

Too often people justify abortions because of the preborn child’s abnormalities or possibility of death. They argue that it is more merciful to kill a preborn child with abnormalities than to let it live. They argue that parents should have the option to kill a preborn child that might die in the womb, rather than wait to see if it will live.

But Noelle’s story and the lives of so many other precious children disprove this case for abortion. How can we know if a child will ultimately live or die in the womb? How can we judge that a miracle won’t happen? How can we predict that a child will not enjoy life because it has a disability? We can’t.

Noelle’s parents chose to hope rather than to try to predict the future. Now, they have a beautiful baby girl — and no regrets.
