It all happened so fast and it only took Miracle minutes to help her mother, Viola Fair, deliver her baby sister, Jayla, into the world with the help of a 911 dispatcher named Scott Stranghoener.
He said the child followed his instructions to the letter and his mother beamed with pride just thinking about how Miracle helped deliver the baby, who arrived three weeks earlier.
Listeners can hear the calm in Miracle’s voice as she informed the dispatcher, “Hi, I think my mom is in labor. When the situation got worse, she said to her mother: “I’m fine mum, I’m fine!
Miracle Moore, 10, was at home with her mother, Viola, and five-year-old sister, Taylor. Mom wasn’t supposed to have her baby for three weeks, but beautiful little Jayla decided to arrive early. On October 23, Miracle lived up to its name. “She was in a lot of pain and I was feeling bad, so I wanted to help her,” Moore said, as she was surrounded by her family on Wednesday night. KMOV

When Fair had the baby, she couldn’t hug him, and Miracle went into nurse mode and wrapped her in a towel.
Fair added, “She wiped her down and rubbed her back a little bit so she could cry. So she was really helpful. I’m so grateful.”
The North County Fire & Rescue (NCFR) then celebrated the young heroine by presenting her with a special certificate, a pink stork pin that EMS workers typically receive after delivering a baby in the field, and other gifts.
“NCFR couldn’t be prouder than to have such an amazing family in our community! We wish you the absolute best! Thank you for allowing us to share such an incredible moment for all of you!” the agency wrote in a social media post:

Now Miracle is considering a career in medicine, but for now she is busy caring for her sisters Taylor and Jayla.
“She is really cute. She doesn’t cry a lot and I can hold her – a lot,” she said of the baby.
