    Woman Crashes Car, Gives Birth Alone

    I can see why the mother picked the name she did for this little girl! Thank heavens mother and daughter are doing well.

    Her Father said he did not know she was even pregnant.


    Its nice that they are both ok but her irresponsible behavoir could have killed them both.
    Have to wonder what type of mother this one is going to be.

    She misspelled the baby's name. That's one of my peeves is that misspellings are considered mainstream okay nowdays. :-(


    Can you imagine not telling your family you were pregnant? My family didn't react well, even though I was married and employed - but what a weird homelife to not tell them at all.

    No refrigerator magnets or any of those do-dads you get in a Hallmark store (with the names on them) for her! lol

    What are these people thinking when they come spellings like this? It could be My Rake L. Weird.

    Glad everything turned out okay, but geeze...

    I've met people that have saddled their children with odd names, and I'm sure they didn't have a clue how to spell the name correctly...so they guessed.

    What a story!
    She must be a strong 21 year old to go through that and all the time having a broken leg, that alone is sooo painful.
    I like the name and doubt it is misspelled, I really think it was a bit of a miracle.

    Oprah actually got her name from the Biblical name orpah but nobody could pronounce it right, they always called her oprah. I guess it just stuck with her and they started calling her that.

    The name Miracle in Spanish is Milagro. It is considered a pretty name here in Costa Rica. And you have to admit, that baby is a living miracle to have survived all that . I don't think it is an ugly name, and it does stand for something meaningful.It sure beats Apple, dontchathink ?
