Miracle Born with just 20% of brain defies odds by outliving doctor’s expectation

What would you do if you were told that your child has only hours to live? Would you give up trying or hold on to your faith for a miracle? Jaxon Buell’s parents certainly believed in the latter.

Jaxon Buell was born without a large part of his skull and brain. Doctors told Brandon and Brittany Buell their son wouldn’t live past a few weeks.

Jaxon was born with only 20% of his brain and skull. It was initially devastating for the couple but thanks to their optimism, Jaxon is soon to celebrate his third birthday. Miracles do happen if you believe in them!

“Jaxon has already shown how strong, smart, and special he is, accomplishing feats that doctors doubted he’d ever be able to do, shows improvements each and every day, and just reached a miraculous milestone in celebrating his firsh birthday,” his family said on Facebook. “Ultimately, Jaxon will need a miracle long-term.”

The family said they have received criticism for not aborting their baby, but the family has responded saying the decision to keep their son was “only our choice.”

Jaxon has most of his brain, but it’s smaller than normal, according to his family. They said he could survive for many years and he’s beginning to walk and speak.

The toddler is said to be making slow but great progress. He can call out to his ‘momma’ and ‘daddy’ and also expresses his ‘I love you’ to them. He is now learning how to grab things, his favorite being a green turtle that lights up when it’s pressed on. He loves it so much that he always has huge grins on his face while playing with it and gives it lots of hugs too.

Jaxon Buell defied odds with his strong will and his parent’s undying faith. A true miracle child.
