After this period, her body began responding and started supporting itself. More than anyother thing, her willpower and her parents’ love made her walk out of the danger zone.

The survival of these babies and many others is an indication and a lesson that no failure is final. If we have a fighting spirit and a will to bounce back, we can always flourish.
