A true “miracle” baby was born at 2:22 a.m. on 02/22/22 in an unlikely birth, according to a North Carolina hospital.
Aberli and Hank Spear named their newborn daughter Judah Grace 10 hours after giving birth on the special Tuesday at the Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington, N.C. in, you guessed it, delivery room No. 2.
“Today is an extra special ‘twos-day’ for this newborn and her family!” Cone Health shared on Facebook.
“Baby Judah is an answered prayer for her family,” the hospital network tweeted, along with several photos of the family.
“Mom Aberli is a Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, and the necessary cancer treatments she went through made pregnancy unlikely,” the hospital network explained. “But the family continued to pray for a little one – and today their prayer was answered!”
The hospital added: “Judah Grace’s name fits her story perfectly. Judah means “praise” – and she is a blessing for her family!”
“We are so happy for this sweet family! Happy birthday, Judah Grace!”
Grandma Kristi Engelbrecht told WFMY Aberli’s battle with cancer lasted six years up until 2020.
“Judah is a reminder of all things good, God’s promises kept, and a community pulling together for the good of one another,” Engelbrecht told the station.
