Morawa family in emotional Mother’s Day reunion after six month hospital stay

It was a Mother’s Day gift a WA family will never forget.

Baby Sara Romy Babu, who was born 17 weeks early at a tiny 641g, spent the first six months of her life in hospital.

COVID-19 rules meant her big sister Abygail could not visit and had never met her precious sibling.

That was until a few days ago, when the family from Morawa got the green light to take Sara home — just in time for Mother’s Day.

Proud father Aby Romy Babu decided to keep the sibling’s reunion a surprise.

“We decided to keep it as a very good surprise for her,” he said.

“It was priceless.”

However, the family’s joy is tinged with heartbreak. When Sara was born at 23 weeks and six days, she had a twin.

But Mira’s tiny heart stopped beating.

“They had to stop after four rounds of CPR,” her father said.

The family say Mira would never be forgotten — and her sister will always be treasured.

“More than I love anyone,” Abygail said.

Sara’s name has extra special meaning — named after Abraham’s wife in the bible to mean “mother of all”.
