Pregnancy for some people is straight line.

A couple gets pregnant, they follow doctors orders, everything goes as planned and at the end of 9 months, a beautiful baby joins us fellow Earthlings.

While for others, the path to pregnancy is a curvy, mysterious and faith-filled path that tests parents and their families every step of the way.

Rob and Shelly Wall were of the later group when they were informed by doctors how their unborn son was not developing correctly and would be born with only 2% of a brain.

They urged the couple on five separate occasions to terminate the pregnancy.

But despite the unknown, the parents decided to continue with the pregnancy.

Noah was born on 11/11 on 11 o’clock but as the doctors predicted, he was only born with 2% of a brain.

But Noah has made leaps and bounds since coming into this world.

Noah is now six-years-old and has literally grown a brain throughout his life — now having 80% of a brain.

His story is so amazing that he has been coined by many as a “miracle.”

Rob Wall explained why the couple decided to ignore the doctors warnings — sharing how it was due to them being older parents.

“I think possibly if younger people were offered that choice, they may have felt pressured into taking it. Because we’re older parents, we know our own minds and we’re positive people. We wanted to give Noah the chance of life.”

When Noah was born — doctors shared with Rob and Shelley how he would most likely not survive.



Looking back on those tough moments after Noah was born, Mrs. Wall shared: “We waited with bated breath and they put a ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ notice on Noah.”

Right after he was born, Noah’s parents decided to take their son to Australia where they poured their time and resources into the best treatment for brain development.

Noah has been having treatment known as “neurophysics,” after he was accepted at a radical brain trainer center — which consists of a combination of physiotherapy and cognitive exercises.

Rob shared with the presenters, “It’s all to do with the brain’s ability to heal or correct the body’s nervous system.”

Noah now wants to learn to walk independently as well as start skiing.

Mr. Wall shared how the experts usually do not give therapy to kids due to the cognitive side of things but they were fortunate enough to be able to convince them to see as well assess Noah — preparing them for when he is old enough to have that cognitive treatment.

The doctors who dealt with the family in the UK have shared how Noah is “extraordinary.”

Noah is a professional model according to his Facebook page and frequently gives back to charity with his family.

Noah recently posted about all the love they have been receiving from all over the world in regards to his journey.

“It really means a lot to us as a family & hope wholeheartedly that this also helps others understand a little more about being disabled with Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus “you can do anything in life” no matter how young or old you are love your life as it’s the greatest gift ever kindest regards to you & your family!”

You go Noah!
