“The doctor came in and said, ‘I’ve got good news and bad news,'” Amanda Prentice said. “He said, ‘your blood pressure has skyrocketed here in the last few days, but you’ve got a baby.'”

The baby, Allie, was born at 5 pounds and 5 ounces.



“I never felt her move,” Amanda Prentice said. “I wore the same clothes that I had worn for two years.”

“The only signs she had was her feet and ankles had swollen up, and that was it,” Billy Prentice said.

Congratulations cards and well wishes are pouring into the family from people all across Lawrence County after news of their daughter’s birth hit the news.

“We had been trying for four years and didn’t think this was gonna happen,” Amanda Prentice said.

“We had talked about adopting, and now we’ve got our miracle baby,” Bill Prentice said. “Five hours after they first told me she was pregnant, I was a dad. Where most people have eight or nine months, I had five hours.”

Amanda and Allie are healthy and doing very well.
