Mother's touch of love&instinct mixed with a little hope&faith brings life to a dead baby,dying baby&a 3yr old!

Felt like sharing some less political and more inspirational posts tonight.

These are must reads!! One of the most beautiful stories of our time...another example that miracles still happen and that the healing power of our Creator still touches lives through love. This mother used her instincts and touch which through God's will her baby survived.

Here's another similar story:

A miracle baby struck down by meningitis has survived despite suffering seven heart attacks in one night.

Ivan Cawley shouldn't have made it through the night after enduring the staggering number of cardiac arrests - including one where his parents lost him for 12 minutes.

Mother and father Sade Jackson, 20, and Phillip Cawley, 24, were told to say goodbye to their first-born after medics said there was little chance of survival.

Nearly out of the woods: Ivan Cawley (pictured here with mother Sade Jackson-see link) has one more hospital check before he is given the all-clear - after surviving meningitis and an astonishing seven heart attacks in one night

Sade told how the ten-month-old was left temporarily paralysed and hooked up to a ventilator within hours of contracting the deadly disease.

But now he has one final check-up and should be given the all-clear next week, just two months after his ordeal throughout the night of July 4 and 5.

Sade, of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, said: 'Everything was going fine. I'd had no complications in pregnancy and he was born a healthy 7lb 1oz. We were settling in to being first-time parents.

'It was a Sunday night and we put him to bed as normal and he was fine. But then when he woke up at around 4.30am he was drenched with sweat and his skin felt like it was on fire but at the same time shivering.

'It was really scary. We waited for the doctors to open and took him down straight away.

Medics were so sure the ten-month-old would not make it through the night they told his parents to say goodbye...

Miracle mum brings premature baby son back to life with two hours of loving cuddles after doctors pronounce him dead

It was a final chance to say goodbye for grieving mother Kate Ogg after doctors gave up hope of saving her premature baby.

She tearfully told her lifeless son - born at 27 weeks weighing 2lb - how much she loved him and cuddled him tightly, not wanting to let him go.
Although little Jamie's twin sister Emily had been delivered successfully, doctors had given Mrs Ogg the news all mothers dread - that after 20 minutes of battling to get her son to breathe, they had declared him dead.

Having given up on a miracle, Mrs Ogg unwrapped the baby from his blanket and held him against her skin. And then an extraordinary thing happened.
After two hours of being hugged, touched and spoken to by his mother, the little boy began showing signs of life.
At first, it was just a gasp for air that was dismissed by doctors as a reflex action.
But then the startled mother fed him a little breast milk on her finger and he started breathing normally.
'I thought, "Oh my God, what's going on",' said Mrs Ogg.
'A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle. Then he held out his hand and grabbed my finger.
'He opened his eyes and moved his head from side to side. The doctor kept shaking his head saying, "I don't believe it, I don't believe it".'

Sweet slumber: Five-month-old Jamie sleeps in his mother's arms as she gives an account of his remarkable survival
The Australian mother spoke publicly for the first time yesterday to highlight the importance of skin-on-skin care for sick babies, which is being used at an increasing number of British hospitals.
In most cases, babies are rushed off to intensive care if there is a serious problem during the birth.
But the 'kangaroo care' technique, named after the way kangaroos hold their young in a pouch next to their bodies, allows the mother to act as a human incubator to keep babies warm, stimulated and fed.
'He started gasping more and more regularly. I thought, "Oh my God, what's going on?" A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle'
Pre-term and low birth-weight babies treated with the skin-to-skin method have also been shown to have lower infection rates, less severe illness, improved sleep patterns and are at reduced risk of hypothermia.
Mrs Ogg and her husband David told how doctors gave up on saving their son after a three-hour labour in a Sydney hospital in March.

All smiles: It was after Kate gave her son some of her breast milk on her finger that he began breathing regularly
'The doctor asked me had we chosen a name for our son,' said Mrs Ogg.
'I said, "Jamie", and he turned around with my son already wrapped up
and said, "We've lost Jamie, he didn't make it, sorry".
'I took my gown off and arranged him on my chest with his head over my
arm and just held him. He wasn't moving at all and we just started
talking to him.
'We told him what his name was and that he had a sister. We told him the things we wanted to do with him throughout his life.

Her husband added: 'Luckily I've got a very strong, very smart wife.
'She instinctively did what she did. If she hadn't done that, Jamie probably wouldn't be here.'
Mrs Ogg held her son, now five months old and fully recovered, as she spoke on the Australian TV show Today Tonight.
