Quadriplegic Gives Birth

Pierce Michael Carston is a true miracle baby. He was born healthy in a natural delivery at a Florida hospital, even though his mother is a quadriplegic.

16 years ago, his mother Michelle dove off a pier not knowing the water was shallow. She says she fell into depression for many years after that, until she met Peter in an online dating service and they fell in love, and now they have baby Michael. She told reporters in Florida today that hopes that her miracle will inspire others who are disabled.

"That's my whole thing. Let me be a person for others to be motivated by and get their head out of the 'Woe is me' pity pot and say, wow, there is another avenue and I can choose to be happy," says Michelle Carston a quadriplegic mom.

Michelle says she is proof that heart and spirit can win over tragedy.
