Father shares photo of baby with powerful message

(WTXF) A father shared a precious photo of his baby on Facebook. The image of the beautiful baby quickly went viral.

Marshall Joyner posted the photo of his baby girl, Olivia-Jax, saying the doctors tried to get himself and the mother to abort the baby three times. According to the father, doctors said the baby's intestines were out of the body and her legs and feet were deformed. Marshall said in the post the doctors said that baby had Trisomy 18 and wouldn't live outside the womb.

Through it all, the parents kept up the hope that they would have a happy and healthy bundle of joy.

Olivia-Jax was born a month early, with perfect hands and feet. Her tummy is also as it should be. She doesn't have an extra 18th chromosome and is almost 7 months and doing great! She is absolutely perfect.
