MIRACLE MONDAY – Kesha and Kaia Osborne

When Kesha Osborne was born, they were not expecting her to survive. Kesha was born at just 22 weeks and weighed 1 lb 2 ounces.

“I had a hole in my heart and bleeding on the brain. I was on oxygen and a feeding tube. My lungs were not fully developed at that time. I had to wear little glasses to protect my eyes from the lights because they were not fully developed either,” said Kesha Osborne.

Kesha spent 100 days at the NICU before she made her miraculous recovery and got to go home.

28 years later, she gave birth to her daughter Kaia. Kaia had a twisted ovary and ended up in the same St. John’s NICU that Kesha was at.

“My mom recognized one of the nurses and found out that, that same nurse took care of me in the NICU!” said Kesha. “In total, 3 of the nurses that took care of me in 1989 were still working there and took care of my daughter as well. I believe it was God’s way of saying everything is going to be okay, these wonderful people took care of me as tiny as I was, and they will take care of Kaia too.”

Today, Kaia and Kesha are both happy and healthy. Kaia will be 2 in September and Kesha will be 30 in August.

“St. John’s has done incredible things for myself and my family. They work miracles.”
