Having a premature birth, is one of the hardest things a mom can go through mentally and physically. So when Walter Joshua Fretz came into the world few weeks too early, doctors knew he had no chance of surviving. But little Joshua gave their parents a moment they will never forget!

Alexis Fretz, had a normal pregnancy and everything seemed to be going according to plan. But she felt a sharp pain and began bleeding heavily. She was immediately rushed to the hospital and doctors had no choice but to deliver her baby boy.
