The Power of the Mommy Instinct


I am sure a lot of you have heard about this story. There is a woman in Australia who delivered her twins premature at 27 weeks. Her daughter lived, but the doctors said that her son was dead. They handed him to her wrapped in a blanket. She unwrapped him and put him on her chest and held him. She talked to him and cuddled him and fed him some breastmilk on her finger and he started to breathe again! He totally recovered and is now a healthy 5 month old baby. I love this story! This woman didn't listen to the doctors, she listened to the spirit....even if she didn't know that was who she was listening to:) Heavenly Father works in amazing and beautiful ways!

Thank you for giving me another miracle to add to the list.

In August we have talked about "Miracles of the Savior" in Primary.

Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are trying in so many ways to show to the world that their are wonderful miracles everyday on this earth.
