In December 2015, doctors told Johanna Morton she was going to miscarry. Just a few weeks ago, she watched her daughter see snow for the first time.
Morton told The Huffington Post that when she was 12 weeks pregnant, doctors discovered something was wrong with her baby’s heart based on the way it sounded.
“They told me I was going to miscarry,” Morton said. “A week or two after when I didn’t miscarry, it seemed like every appointment we would be told something else was wrong with her heart, another diagnosis.”
Doctors later told Morton that her baby would be stillborn. Her daughter, Clara Ray, defied the odds, though, and was born via C-section on June 14th at 37 weeks.
“It was a miracle she hung on,” Morton said. “Even in the operating room, they couldn’t tell me if she would be born alive.”
