Victoria Bradley was eager to become pregnant and bring a beautiful little blessing into this world. So imagine her joy and happiness when she discovered she was expecting!
But just 24 weeks into her pregnancy, Victoria knew that her pregnancy journey would be highly unconventional. It wasn't until her visit to the hospital that she learned her pregnancy could possibly be devastating if her daughter was born too early.
Watching her, Francesca's tiny hands and feet made the nurses marvel. According to Victoria, she said that just looking at the delicate little body, she couldn't believe it was her daughter.
Mom held on tight to her little girl as she watched her fight through multiple surgeries and medical procedures. She cradled her skin-to-skin, which is recommended for preemies to help with bonding and their health.
The sheer amount of physical struggles that occurred during the first months of Francesca's life makes it hard to believe she could one day thrive. But after months of illnesses and recovery, wait until you see her now.
Francesca is a fighter and she doesn't even know it yet. But since day one, she has been an inspiration that the odds can be defied.
