All the doctors said she wasn't supposed to survive, but Clara Ray proved them wrong and lived to see her first snowfall.

Last year, on the day before Christmas Eve, Johanna Morton went in to get an ultrasound, expecting happy news. Instead, she was told that her baby was very sick, and that she was probably going to lose her, The Telegraph reports.

But recently, 5-month-old Clara Ray saw snow for the first time.

“This is her seeing her first snow fall. She absolutely loved it,” Morton wrote in a post shared on the Love What Matters Facebook page. “I can’t explain the emotions we felt, as we watched that smile come across her face. Pure. Joy.”

Morton told The Daily Mail that watching Clara Ray’s adorable reaction to the snow made her emotional. “I had a flash back to the countless ultrasound apps and being told she was not going to survive over and over again. It was December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve, when I was first told something was wrong with her heart. I still dreamed and I dreamed of her playing in the snow, watching the Christmas lights and so much more. I was pretty much told she would not see Christmas 2016.

“The whole pregnancy and even now, I sing that song ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ and I will always sing that song to her. I prayed to God for a Christmas miracle, and I got one!”

“I was told she will not survive. ‘You will miscarry’”

Morton was 12 weeks gestation when she was told that her baby’s heart wasn’t functioning normally.

Heartbroken, Morton left the clinic in tears, but her baby was a fighter. Though her heartbeat continued to slow, she made it to 18 weeks gestation. However, each new appointment came with a new heartbreaking diagnosis.
