Thanksgiving miracle

When Elijah Dawson Ott came into the world six years ago, born three months early, he weighed just 1.7 lbs and was slightly longer than a dollar bill. Hospitalized at Sacred Heart for four months, his parents Tim and Nellie stayed close by at the Ronald McDonald House, while he fought for life and won. The power of love, the power of prayer ... now a happy and healthy kindergartner, Elijah and his family have much to celebrate. How fitting that this little boy's birthday falls on Thanksgiving!


  1. Beautiful story, darling little boy. Good example of the power of prayer. Happy Birthday Elijah!

  2. He is truly an acceptional child with a wonderful family. He is now a roll model for his other sibilings and brings much joy to everyone he meets. God Bless you!
