Miracle baby cheated death with the help of an angel-in-disguise!!
Meet Sarah Conque, a passionate young missionary who has done the unthinkable and acted as one of the best representatives of humanity. By accepting an unwanted baby suffering from hydroencephaly and bringing her up as her own ward, Sarah has proved that there still exists goodness in a world bereft of human conscience and values.
Sarah is just 28 years old. As a certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, Sarah had been consistently working to alleviate child suffering in Haiti where treating and caring for children with deformities has become her life’s mission. As a young graduate, Sarah worked for the Danita Children Medical Center in Haiti. She moved there from Louisiana in 2013. Sarah’s story of saving a baby, who is being called the miracle baby, is both heart breaking and heartwarming.
1 Little Baby Nika, a Social Outcast at 3 Months Old
Nika was a little three month old baby whose mother was ashamed of her condition. Nika was suffering from hydroencephaly with a brain slowly enlarging due to accumulated cerebrospinal fluid. Nika was also suffering from extreme malnutrition and in dire need of emergency care. Her mother would wrap her in blankets to shield her away from onlookers out of shame. Nika at 3 months was a social outcast. It was sad that her malnourished condition was due to sheer parental neglect. Had Nika been older she would had definitely been emotionally scarred.
Nika was brought to the attention of Sarah Conque when another woman entered into the medical facility with Nika. When Sarah saw Nika, she no doubt had a lump in her throat. Till that time, it seemed that for 11 month old Nika, humanity had unfortunately ceased to exist. She was a cursed child. Nika’s weight was recorded at 6 pounds out of which the majority was cerebral fluid.
