A Mother’s Unconditional Love


The miraculous story of three-year Jamie Ogg, who was pronounced dead at birth.

While browsing the internet for stories this morning, I came across an article that literally gave me chills. An Australian woman gave birth to twins at 27 weeks old; her son, Jamie Ogg, weighing in at just two pounds, was “pronounced dead by his physician after medical staff tried for twenty minutes to revive him.”

Jamie is now three years old and perfectly healthy because of the unconditional love of his mother. Stated in the article, “when Jamie was pronounced dead, the doctor handed him to his mother, Kate, so that she could say goodbye to her son. Kate took Jamie into her arms and tearfully caressed her tiny son.”

Kate held him against her chest, talking to him with her husband, telling him how much they loved him. After two hours, “Jamie began gasping for air more frequently, and then Kate gave him a little breast milk on her finger. The baby took the milk, and then he opened his eyes.” This tiny baby was a miracle.

This story was truly touching to me and gives me so much hope for the pro-life movement. Because of Jamie’s mother, his life was saved, and that is truly beautiful. I sometimes find it difficult to search the news because there are so many depressing stories circulating the media, but when I come across stories like this one I can’t help but smile and think that what truly matters in life is the love we have for each other. When we love each other as Christ has loved us, no evil can triumph over us.

“Keep your love for one another at full strength, because love covers a multitude of sins.” I Peter 4:8
