Doctors Said to Abort Jaxon Because He’d Died After Birth. Two Years Later He’s Defying the Odds

Days have turned into weeks and weeks into years for little Jaxon Buell, a Florida toddler whose parents were advised to abort him.

Jaxon, who was diagnosed with a rare brain malformation before his birth, recently celebrated his second birthday – a milestone that doctors thought he would never see.
“We celebrate Jaxon’s life every single day,” his parents, Brandon and Brittany Buell, told TODAY. “We try to make it special for him. Whether reading a book in his room or cuddling on the couch together, it’s the littlest thing, but for him, it’s the world.”

Jaxon has microhydranencephaly, a rare, often fatal condition where part of the brain is missing. According to the Buells’ doctors, Jaxon is missing 80 percent of his brain. The Florida family previously told Fox 29 News that they have received criticism for not aborting Jaxon; but the Buells said life was “our only choice.”

As LifeNews previously reported, doctors gave Brandon and Brittany a grim picture of their son’s future: “They told us he wouldn’t hear, see, or have any senses. He wouldn’t tell us he was hungry. He may not do any of life’s normal luxuries. Early on it was very tough for us. It was tough not knowing what we were gonna get and we could lose him at any time.”

Today, the family said Jaxon can do all of those things.

Jaxon's miraculous story continues
