Baby Born From Rescued Embryo
The embryo’s were rescued from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Baby Noah Markham was born by Caesarean Section at St. Tammany Hospital in Louisiana and weighed just over 8lb 6oz (3.78kg). Mother Rebekah, 32, said she chose the name “because God put it on his heart to build an ark”. Her embryos were along with 1,400 other canisters of stored embryos in liquid nitrogen retrieved by police boats in 2005.
Although most of us know that not much is being done in the way of reconstruction in New Orleans, due to the lack of funding from the Government, but a story like this gives hope to those wondering if anything good is coming from Katrina.
