Doctors Tell Parents To Make Funeral Arrangements, But Daughter Defies Odds And Becomes A Mom

By  | 

Mothers everywhere perform a balancing act that few others can comprehend.

They do it all, from taking care of the kids and the house, to taking care of the chauffeuring and the cooking. They never seem to stop moving and they never seem to disappoint their loved ones.

And while every mother has a different story to tell for how she does it all, Sydney Learning is a mom that we could all learn from.

She was diagnosed with a flesh-eating disease as a child, and her leg was amputated. But, unfortunately, the doctors thought that the amputation and treatmentsweren’t working.

As her major organs started to fail, and her heart stopped for the third time, they told her parents to make funeral arrangements.

But, they didn’t. And Sydney survived, and then thrived. And although her life as she once knew it was over, she decided she was going to make her new life even better and she did.

When the magical day came that she found out she was pregnant, she couldn’t have been happier. The doctors said it was twins, and she was ecstatic to start her own little family.

Would she be able to balance her life as a mother living with onlyone leg? We’ll let you decide after watching the video, but we’d say she’s done it all: she’s a phenomenal mother, role model, and all-around woman.

Stories like this remind us of the little things that we should be thankful for,because women like Sydney are the real heroes!
