In early June, GOP Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler revealed the devastating news that her unborn child had been diagnosed with Potter’s Syndrome, a condition that is usually fatal. She and her husband were praying for a miracle.

Today, she announced the July 15 birth of daughter Abigail Rose. Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, Abigail came into the world as the first known Potter’s Syndrome survivor. Miracles really do happen.

From Rep. Herrera Beutler’s Facebook post:

With great joy, gratitude and hope, we are pleased to share with you the news of the birth of our daughter, Abigail Rose Beutler, on Monday, July 15 at 3:13 AM at Emanuel Legacy hospital in Portland. She weighed two pounds, twelve ounces and was only 28 weeks along. She is every bit a miracle.

She certainly is. Be sure to read the full post. Truly inspiring.

Born without kidneys and requiring dialysis, little Abigail still has a long road ahead of her. But she is blessed to have the love and support of her amazing family.
