Carina and Adrian were crushed when doctors told them their baby suffered from gastroschisis. It’s a birth defect where the abdominal walls do not form properly. Because of the high chance of still birth, doctors suggested they terminate the pregnancy.

. Alec’s Arrival
The couple’s precious baby boy — Alec Ezra Romo — was born three weeks early, with his intestines on the outside of his body.

“When they delivered him he was silent at first,” Carina said. “But then I heard him cry for the first time and it was such a relief, like a weight was off my shoulders.”

He still had a lot of fighting to do, but he was here!

Doctors decided to use a plastic bag — a tube-like, silo bag — to gradually squeeze Alec’s intestines back where they should be. All they could do was pray it would work, and that little Alec would survive.

Alec battled a blood infection and two hernias, but God was on his side. The little warrior overcame, and the silo bag treatment was a success!

Even though we were told he might not make it through delivery and he’s been so through so much, it shows it was worth fighting for him to have a chance,” Carina said. “He’s our miracle.

Carina and Adrian were over the moon when it was finally time to take their baby boy home. A house full of family was waiting to welcome them. But the ecstatic parents snuck away to their bedroom.

“I don’t know where I would be without him,” Adrian said. “Everything I do is because I want him to proud to have me as his father, just as I am so proud to have such a fighter as my son.”
