She Found A Baby With Swollen Head In The Trash. What She Did Next... Unbelievable!

It all started in January 2013, when a young lady pulled in Sarah's office one fine morning, holding a three-month-old baby in her arms. Sarah was always fascinated by kids and had a soft calling to advocate for the well-being of disabled children. Nika (three-month-old baby), suffered from a severe brain condition that caused a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid on the brain. Nika whose head was swollen and enlarged needed immediate medical care. However, it seemed as if the mother was not concerned about the care the baby needs but was more concerned about the condition she suffered from. 

Sarah also learned that Nika's birth mother had tried all possible things to terminate the pregnancy by drinking poison and even went far enough to sell her daughter. Sarah continued to work with Nika and her mother despite everything but was worried to notice that the infant had lost a lot of weight to the point of being skeletal. She realised that Nika wasn't malnourished but was losing weight because of neglect. But one day when Sarah decided to visit the mother and the baby at their house. She was stunned to make a shocking discovery that changed her life forever.

Sarah says,"The first time Nika was in my care, it hit me just how she was neglected and malnourished." She added on by mentioning that her internal organs were beginning to shut down. Most cases like Nika, die before they turn one. Miraculously she had already surpassed the odds.

The doctors still had the same answer. They said her condition is worsening and asked Sarah to pray.
