UK’s tiniest baby, given 1% chance of survival, turns 10: mom was advised to abort
BIRMINGHAM, July 10, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– When Aaliyah Hart was born in 2003 at City Hospital, Birmingham, three months prematurely, weighing just 12oz and only 7 inches long, and with undeveloped lungs, doctors told her mother that she had a 1% chance of survival.
Aaliyah, defying the odds, turned ten in May and says that while she likes school, she loves sports and is the captain of the girls' football (soccer) team.
Almost as big as her peers now, at four feet tall and weighing 56 lbs, Aaliyah said, "I really like playing football, it's a lot of fun playing with my friends. Being the captain makes me feel very proud.”
“I like school but I really love sports. I know I'm a bit smaller but I try not to let it make a difference. My favourite team is Manchester United. I really like Wayne Rooney," she said according to a Daily Mail report on the amazing little girl.
Aaliyah is the smallest surviving baby ever born in Britain.
Aaliyah's mother Lorraine, herself only 5 ft., 1 in. tall, recalled that after she and her husband Ricardo had tried for 15 years to conceive without success, she was delighted when she found she was pregnant.
