Doctors Said Eli Would be Disabled or Die, So He Should Be Aborted… He Was Born Healthy

The news just kept getting worse and worse for Courtney Mitchell and her unborn son.

It began when Mitchell went for her 20-week ultrasound. Her doctor discovered strange pockets of fluid in her placenta and ordered a high risk ultrasound for the next day.

After the second ultrasound, doctors told Courtney and her husband, Chris, that their son had genetic problems and probably would not live outside the womb. Doctors gave baby Eli less than 1 percent chance of survival.
