Couple Dana and Arkell Graves went viral when they announced on Youtube they were pregnant after 17 years of infertility. But conceiving their baby Kaleb was half the battle.

During her pregnancy, Dana was warned by doctors that if she continued to carry the baby, she would die, according to People. 

She refused to go on with the delivery until it was a time where they could actually take care of him in the neonatal intensive care unit,” Arkell added. “I’m going to tell you, just looking at my wife, it was the most selfless thing I have ever seen somebody do.

Kaleb was born 16-weeks early and delivered through c-section. During his birth, Dana’s blood pressure spiked to near-fatal levels–placing her in critical care for two days.


Despite early complications, ‘Baby buns’ continues to thrive, with the happy family finally returning home together last week.

Dana explained ‘At this very moment, all of my men are asleep under the same roof. Some days I really didn’t think that it would happen.’

Well look at God:
