Mother refuses abortion and receives a life saving heart transplant

Sweet story out of Chattanooga of faith and respect for human life. A young woman, Miracle McIntosh, had one child and was pregnant for a second time and also had a  serious heart condition. 
"McIntosh was diagnosed with postpartum cardiomyopathy in 2008 while carrying Zoei. It is a rare disorder in which a weakened heart is diagnosed within the final month of pregnancy or within five months after delivery, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine's website."
The doctors recommended abortion but the mother refused.....
"I felt like God didn't bless me with a baby to abort her," said Miracle McIntosh.
It took faith but Miracle did deliver a baby girl and three years later received a heart transplant.

"She is determined and she has her faith in God. It's not in her hands anymore."
