This story was told in 2010, yet the testimony of this mother's love and instinct to care for her brand new baby, who was pronounced dead, is no less powerful. I dare you not to cry as you read this article...
After Kate was told Jamie didn’t make it, nurses placed the baby across Kate’s bare chest so Kate and David could reconcile themselves to his death.
“I wanted to meet him and to hold him and for him to know us,” Kate Ogg told Curry. “If he was on his way out of the world, we wanted for him to know who his parents were and to know that we loved him before he died.”
But a strange thing happened on their way to farewell. After five minutes, Jamie began displaying short, startled movements. As Kate and David looked on, his movements became more pronounced.
Still, the baby’s doctor told the parents any movements were purely reflex, and their son was not alive. Read the article in full!
“She instinctively did what she did,” Ogg told The Daily Mail. “If she hadn’t have done that, then Jamie probably wouldn’t be here.”There's not a doubt in anyone's mind that this mom's instinct was her child's saving grace.
