  1. A little miracle amongst all the wreckage and tormoil! Praying for even more miracles in Jesus Christ’s name.

  2. This baby is a God. So powerful his bitth caused the Warth to shake. True facts, thats why it was a shallow earthquake πŸ˜‰

  3. No human can even comprehend what those little ones experienced burried alive in dark and cold for tens of hours. If watching and knowing this does nto make your heart ache, no matter who they are, where they were born, what language they speak, there is something fundamentally wrong with you.

    1. Sadly I know a person that would not be affected by this. He cries for his dogs, buys them expensive food and things but when it comes to a human being…even an innocent child, he does not care. Yes, there is something fundamentally wrong with him. Sadly there are many people like that that walk this Earth.
