When she came into this world in September 2017, her mother was terrified as her daughter's first day of life might have also become the last. Doctors said the girl would not survive outside her mother's womb.

Throughout her pregnancy, Kitty's mother, Bonnie, anticipated the worst news. So Bonnie had no idea she would become a proud mother to her little survivor.

An ultrasound at the twentieth week of gestation brought unexpected news. Bonnie, who by that time had had two teenagers and a month-old boy, could not believe that something was wrong with her pregnancy.

But the test revealed that she was expecting a baby with Down syndrome.

This chromosomal defect is considered rare, affecting 1 in 700 babies in the United States. Although the news about Down syndrome was not what the family expected to hear, the bad luck wasn’t over and the worst was yet to come.

Later, three heart problems and one defect of the digestive tract were diagnosed at once. This meant that the baby would be fed by catheters and would require several cardiac surgeries immediately after birth.

In several months, Bonnie, 36, gave birth to her "wonder girl" and recently expressed her admiration for the baby, who is finally out of danger, despite the doctors' predictions.

Waiting for each surgery to be over was a torture for the dedicated mother, but watching the baby smile made all these efforts worth it.
