Stillborn baby revived after 20 minutes suffering from severe brain damage, microcephaly, cerebral palsy and encephalopathy.

Payton is a 6 month old miracle baby born Dec. 29, 2011. She was delivered at 3:47 via emergency c-section due to a placenta abruption. She weighed 1112 grams (2llbs. 7.7 ounces) and was 15 inches long. A placenta abruption occurs when a baby's oxygen and nutrient suppy is completely cut off from the mother. Payton was pronounced dead at birth and showed no sign of life for 20 minutes. A miracle occured and God intervened allowing her tiny frail body life once more. Due to her lack of oxygen at birth she was diagnosed with severe brain damage, microcephaly, encephalopathy, sub clinical seizures and was placed on life support. Her doctor asked her dad and I to remove her from life support because there was no hope for her, and if she were to survive she would be severely mentally retarded, suffer from cerebral palsy, be deaf and blind, have learning disabilities, and emotional disorders.We chose to keep the faith and to turn everything over to God. Payton has been out of the hospital now for 3 months.She appears to be developing at the rate of a 3 month old infant (preemies are always a little behind) and is not blind. She hears in her right ear but wears hearing aids in both ears, she has mild cerebral palsy though it does not seem to interfere with her day to day activities thus far, her brain is growing at a much slower rate than it should be and we have found a doctor who may be able to perform a stem cell transplant to regrow the damaged cells in her brain so she can live a normal healthy life. We are asking for any amount you are willing to donate. Thank you for reading her story and thank you for your donations.
