Once Upon A Miracle
by Wanda D. Baylis
Wanda anxiously awaited the day she would finally give birth to her baby daughter. But as the doctor began to perform what seemed to be a rather routine C-section, Wanda heard the most terrifying and unexpected words she could have imagined:
“Where’s the baby? The baby is not in the uterus!”
Alexis Lynn Nicole (Nikki), grew for 7 months in her mother’s stomach—literally, not in her uterus—but in her abdomen. Unprotected by her mother’s womb, her entire left side was crushed. With wit and inspiration from her Grandmamma; Wanda courageously faced and is now sharing with others, in her book, Once Upon a Miracle, how to overcome life’s biggest challenges with a smile.
Wanda decided that she would give Nikki a lifetime of love in whatever time she was allowed to have her in this earth. Nikki’s life was a short 7 ½ weeks, before she finally succumbed to the unique challenges that accompanied her miraculous birth. Nikki’s courage and fighting spirit provided inspiration and joy to everyone who knew her. She even taught the most staunch unbelievers that it’s not over ‘til God says it’s over.
Once Upon a Miracle is a true story of a mother’s love and great faith. It will cause you to—laugh, cry, believe in miracles again and to come to understand that with God all things are possible!
