When one expecting Australian couple went to the doctor for routine scans and a check up, they couldn’t wait to find out more about their baby.

Tragically, the information they did find out left them devastated. When expecting mom Thembe Moyo was 21 weeks pregnant, doctors discovered her baby boy was suffering from a condition called nasal encephalocele, which made his brain grow outside the skull because of a hole in between his eyes.

“It was confronting. We were scared. We were shattered. Lots of tears,” dad Sipho Moyo said. “In their words, he wasn’t going to be human. He wasn’t going to be a human being.”

Doctors told the couple to terminate the pregnancy, but they quickly refused. When baby Jayden was finally born, his skull was inside a large growth that stuck out from his skull as doctors said it would, but a week after his birth, 10 specialist surgeons got to work putting his brain back inside his head.

After the complicated and risky surgery, doctors were stunned by Jayden’s progress. The six-hour surgery was so successful that the baby suffered no permanent damage and would only need plastic surgery on his nose later in life. “Jayden makes us happy. His smile, considering everything he’s gone through, he’s just an amazing boy,” Moyo said.
