The parents of a dying newborn have witnessed a miracle after their son’s hospice nurse prayed over him for hours.
Braden West was born with type 2 Pfeiffer syndrome, a condition that causes cranial facial abnormalities that makes it difficult to breathe. Doctors expected that he wouldn’t live and if he would, he would be blind, deaf, and severely handicapped. His parents then decided to send him to hospice care as a newborn, and that’s where he met a woman who changed his life forever.
When Braden came, the hospice nurse Michele Linn was assigned to his care, but she wasn’t just an ordinary nurse. For months, she spent hours every day at his bedside, praying for a miracle for the little boy. One particular night, Michelle witnessed how Braden’s health was deteriorating and she feared that it was the end of his story. So, she desperately contended for a miracle that night.
“I honestly wasn’t sure if he would make it to morning,” Michele wrote in a Facebook post. “As I watched him struggle all throughout the night, I remember pleading with God to please just take him or make him better, it was just too hard for him, his family, and all those involved in his care.”

After that prayer, Michelle and Braden’s parents saw a miracle unfolding before them! Braden’s health steadily improved and after a few months, he was discharged from hospice. He was the first patient Michelle discharged from hospice care, it was a rare moment for her.
Braden West continued to experience miracles up to this day as he is now 20 years old and has recently graduated from High School. Michele and Braden met again after 17 years for his graduation photo shoot.
“To know him is to love him. He is kind, and smart, loves his family, friends, fishing, planes, Luke Bryan, his truck, and most of all…..he loves Jesus. His faith is so important to him and he shares it with anyone who will listen. To see him now, there is no doubt why God chose Braden to stay. The light of Christ shines so brightly through him. He is hope. He is a walking testament of faith, and he is love in its purest form,” she wrote.Read also: 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVES FALLING 15FT HEADFIRST ON CONCRETE
