A newborn boy, still tied to the placenta and umbilical cord, was left on someone’s yard. The little one was exposed to the sun and would have perished if a 9-year-old girl who was acting as an angel didn’t accidentally come across it.
Elysa, a 9-year-old Indiana girl, noticed strange noises while playing outside. She went to look into it since she thought one of the pigs had escaped. She walked slowly, watching the tiny pink legs.
When Elysa heard the “abnormal” creature, she screamed and ran inside to notify her mother. Brad Edwards of CBS 2 interviewed her and she said, “It just freaked me out, I didn’t know what it was.”
The mother, Heidi Laub, went to investigate and found a newborn close to one of the bushes.
I exclaimed, “What?” when she announced, “Oh my God, it’s a baby.” Elysia recalled a specific detail.
I only saw pink legs kicking away, Elysia remarked. “I could tell it was alive, and that we were on to something.” I had no reason to question myself. I saw that we required help.
Fortunately, the youngster was taken to St. Anthony’s Hospital, where doctors found that he was well. They said the infant was only a day old.
According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Elysa is the infant’s guardian angel.
Elysia feigned guilt, “I didn’t do it.” “God helped me,” someone said. He put me in that circumstance.
If I hadn’t been there and God hadn’t told my brain to make me go there, we would have discovered a dead baby in the yard this afternoon, the stunning girl said. “It would be much different and much worse.”
Because of Elysa, the infant received a second chance at life.
