Doctors Told Them To Give Up On Their Sick Baby But Then This Miracle Happened

NOVEMBER 30, 2016  —  By Hannah Austin

When doctors in Algeria told the parents of one-year-old Marwa that it was time to take their baby off life support, they refused to give up hope. After petitioning the court for an extension of care, they witnessed a miracle.

Marwa was hospitalized in September after contracting a virus that causes neurological complications. Doctors were forced to put her in an induced a coma, but soon informed her parents that she was braindead. According to them, baby Marwa would never walk, talk, or breathe on her own again.

Marwa's parents wouldn't allow doctors to pull the plug on their daughter. With the help of a Facebook petition called "Not Without My Marwa," they raised enough money to challenge the matter in court.

After reviewing the case, the court granted a two-month extension of care. Incredibly, just 10 days later, baby Marwa came out of a coma on her own.

Her father, Jamais, captured the incredible miracle in the video below. He told a local news site, "When I talk to her, she hears my voice, she reacts, sometimes she smiles."

If it hadn't been for her family's persistence, Marwa would have been taken off life support. It's likely that she would have died. Her treatment isn't over yet, but this little one has proven that she is a fighter.
