A 10-year-old girl helped her mother give birth. With this feat of hers, she could not be ashamed of her own name, Miracle.
On October 23rd, Viola Fair gave birth at her home in Jennings, Missouri. She called her 911 with her Miracle call.
During a phone call with Central County Emergency 911 dispatcher Scott Stranghorner, Miracle remained calm throughout as he listened to instructions to deliver her baby sister.
I heard a miracle on the phone and instructed my mom to lie down and reassured me it was okay.
“She’s here!” she says when her sister is born.
“Is the baby breathing?” Strangener asks.
“Yes, she is crying now,” Miracle replies.
“Okay, well done,” he says to the girl.
Miracle was the first to welcome her younger sister Jayla into the world.
“When baby Jayla arrived, Miracle wiped her face, stimulated her to cry until paramedics arrived, and was there with a towel to help keep her warm,” North County Fire Rescue said. Corps said in a Facebook post about the birth.
Fire and paramedics arrived on the scene within minutes and took Fair and Jayla to the hospital.
This week, the fire and rescue team honored Miracle for her bravery by awarding her a special certificate and a stork pin. She also received a tablet with her games and her diary. The cover reads, “You can change the world, girl.”
She also reunited with her sister’s birth teammate, Stranghener.
