There are some angels in the form of humans right here on this earth among us.
We may never get to see them or sometimes we may never get to hear their stories but that doesn’t mean good people don’t exist. This is such a heartwarming story of a couple who adopted a baby born without a brain although they already have several kids of their own to take care of.
Story Of The Adopting Parents A.K.A The Angelic Couple
Although Josh and Allison Lewis are a big family of four biological and three adopted children, they decided to adopt two more. These two newbies were Sam and Ava. They’re basically twins and the couple had no problem in adopting them.
There are some times when you don’t know what you’re putting yourself into until you’re knees deep. Even if you read the whole story of this couple, they have no regret as most people would since one of the twins was born without a brain.
Here’s What You Need To Know About Josh And Allison
Back in 2015, this couple got a call from an adoption attorney that they had filed for.
They didn’t hesitate and packed up to leave for a 10-hour long journey to adopt the baby since they didn’t know this was a pair! This was until the adoption agency did call again and gave them the shock that the woman has twins.On this, they did agree to take care of both.
Although the attorney told them that one of the babies won’t survive considering the health risks involved, they still got to the hospital.
This couple met a healthy baby boy but the sister was struggling for life.The doctors told them that they don’t have to take the sick child with them but the angelic couple insisted. Josh and Allison decided not to separate the pair.
What Allison Says About The Twins
“When we arrived, we saw a healthy baby boy who was with the nurses cuddling them on the floor. IN NICU there was a 3-pound little baby girl and we found out soon enough that she does not have any brain.”
Allison continues reminiscing the story of this wonderful surprise: “I knew and the docs knew she wasn’t going to survive but I didn’t want to leave her behind.”
Ava’s Fight For Survival
The adopted, born-without-a-brain baby’s name was Ava Leigh Lewis. She stayed in the hospital for about 46 days until she could finally go home and the doctors commanded to. It was a surprise on how did she survive this long but the couple knew that she was special.
This angelic couple took care of her when they brought her home. Everyone showered her with lots of affection, care, and love from the whole family. It wasn’t possible for her to survive this long anyway!
She had seizures, pain, and several other medical health conditions that simply showed signs of no survival.
Josh Speaking About Ava With Love and Compassion
“We had a choice to leave her at the hospital in the hands of the doctors where she couldn’t really have survived.
More than medical treatment as there isn’t any to give her a brain, she needed a chance with life.We believed Ava had to experience the beauty of love and mercy from others at home so we brought her home despite knowing the complications we would face.
But The Baby Passed Away…
Sadly, Ava was 7 months old only when she passed away.Every day before her death felt like the last one but for 7 months, she survived real good.
The couple says even though they’re heartbroken upon her death but they’re hopeful and happy.Because she’s in much Greater Hands; God’s protection and love now.
