Doctors told 27-year-old Nicollete Soto that her life was at risk because her unborn baby was developing outside her womb in a rare condition known as a cornual pregnancy.
Though physicians couldn’t remember any case of a successful pregnancy with such a condition, Soto would not consider an abortion and carried the pregnancy to 32 weeks before doctors delivered a health baby.
She eventually gave birth to Azelan Cruz, weighing 2 pounds, 14 ounces and named the baby after the central figure in the Chronicles of Narnia, a book written by Christian author C.S. Lewis.
“We took a risk,” Soto’s boyfriend, Victor Perfecto, told a newspaper. “We left it for the doctors to decide when to deliver the baby and God to decide everything else.”
“She decided, ‘I want to keep going,'” he added. “All I could do is support her and be there.”
