When Tatyana Ramjohn’s water broke at 19 weeks of pregnancy, she and her husband began to pray for a miracle.

Her doctors told her to have an abortion because her life was at risk and her unborn son likely would have disabilities — if he survived at all, according to God TV, a Christian media group based in Florida.

But Ramjohn and her husband, Timothy, refused to end their unborn son’s life and put their trust in God. Now, Easton is 3 years old and defying doctors’ predictions.

“He’s … making so much improvement and his journey has encouraged and brought joy and hope to so many people,” Tatyana said.

In early 2019, Tatyana Ramjohn said her water broke at 19 weeks of pregnancy, before her unborn son was viable. Doctors told her that her life was at risk if she continued the pregnancy and her unborn son probably would not survive, according to the report. When doctors told her to have an abortion, however, she and her husband refused.

“We were handed a list of abortion clinics,” Timothy remembered. “Because at 19 weeks the chance of survival is 0 percent if she went into labor. In addition, an infection or hemorrhage can put her life at risk. All we had was faith.”

The Ramjohns put their trust in God, and Tatyana spent the rest of her pregnancy on complete bed rest. Eight weeks later, Easton was born on April 15, 2019, and even the doctors described him as a “miracle,” his parents said

He was born prematurely at 27 weeks, weighing about 2 pounds, and spent four months in the neo-natal intensive care unit, his parents said.

“We have a long road ahead, but we are more than confident that God will see us all the way through. What a gift!!!!!” Timothy wrote on Facebook after Easton was born.

When the family finally took him home from the hospital, they praised God for the miracle of their son’s life.

“123 restless days of around the clock care, prayers and love in the NICU, we finally get to bring him home. Thank you, Jesus, for this miracle,” Timothy wrote on Facebook.

Three years later, the Ramjohns said Easton is doing better than doctors ever expected.

“His brain wasn’t fully developed in utero (agensesis of the corpus collosum), but he’s defying the odds and is so smart!” his mother said.

The family recently celebrated his third birthday.
