In 2017, an Alabama family of four was driving home from Christmas shopping when the unthinkable happened: They were in a tragic car accident.
Thankfully, the mother, father and newborn boy in the car survived without critical injuries.
But 3-year-old daughter and sister, Lacey Jane Ayers, was not so fortunate. She was airlifted immediately to Alabama Children’s Hospital, according to the Daily Mail.

“The evening following her accident, Lacey was not expected to make it through the night. However, she miraculously started to respond,” the family wrote on the Love for Lacey Facebook page in December 2017.
“Since then, Lacey has started to take very small and very slow steps towards recovery.”
