She Woke Up From Coma To Find Out She Is A Mom

Touching your baby for the first time, holding it in your hands, watching him/her open eyes, and the moment he/she clutches your hand with those tiny fingers.....ask a mother, this is undoubtedly the best feeling of all!

A mother's love knows no bounds. It is the strongest proof that the concept of 'love at first sight' exists. Motherhood changes a woman's entire being. It recreates their existence and path of life for ever.It's a feeling so intense, that it has the capability of sparking a miracle. Yes, miracles do happen.

A miracle happened to Sharista Giles too. You can follow her here on Facebook.

The infant turned out to be a fighter. He survived, grew stronger and soon was able to leave the intensive care unit to meet his mom.

This was when the miracle happened. Sharista's aunt Beverly wrote on Facebook, 'She opened her eyes and blinked and squeezed our fingers when we asked her to, she was following her Dad's voice and then she saw her baby. She is not communicating still, but this is a good start. God is great. Keep praying.'

It seemed like Sharista was responding to her baby boy, who was soon named Leighton Isiah Giles. He stays with his Mom's family since April 2015. He visits his mum regularly now.

Beverly updated another Facebook post according to which they went to meet Sharista, painted her toenails and hung a poster size picture of her baby so that she can see him all the time.

Yet another post by Sharista's aunt said that the baby went to meet his mommy at her facility on Friday to celebrate Mothers Day.

When the baby was kept on his mother's chest, she puckered her lips twice and kissed the baby on his forehead.

Every time when Leighton visits his mom, she is seen to be more responsive which strengthens her belief that one day she will come out of coma.

They played a video of her baby laughing out loud which made her turn towards him as he was looking at her and cooing.

Unfortunately, since July 2015, things are going downhill for Sharista. She has an appointment with a neurologist in August 2015.

Lets hope that this ending turns out to be a good one. Miracles do happen for those who believe. This pair of Mother-son deserves one.
