Birth in destruction

This week, we have witnessed incredible destruction and loss, but a glimmer of hope has emerged. A pregnant woman was swept away by Typhoon Haiyan. She had to hold onto a post in rushing waters up to 13 feet deep to save her own life and the life of her child. Eventually she was rescued and taken to a makeshift clinic set up in a nearby airport, and she gave birth to a healthy baby girl – Bea Joy Sagales. This beautiful baby is a bright light in a sea of darkness, and we can only hope that she is a beacon of hope for people struggling through this hard time.
