MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The parents of a Haitian baby rescued from the rubble after January’s devastating earthquake said Tuesday it was “a miracle” that their daughter survived, addressing reporters a day after their emotional reunion in the U.S.

Junior Alexis, 24, and Nadine Devilme, 23, hugged their baby Jenny during a news conference in Florida, where the 5-month-old girl was treated. Dressed in a pink outfit and white socks, Jenny was sleeping at first, but woke up and stared wide-eyed into the cameras as they shot footage of her on her mother’s lap.

“I want to thank everybody, first all the doctors, all the lawyers, everyone that has helped because everything that has happened here has been a miracle,” said Alexis, a hip-hop musician in Haiti who spoke through an interpreter. “Because if it wasn’t for your help, we wouldn’t be here and our baby Jenny wouldn’t be alive today.”

The family’s ordeal began when Jenny and her mother were separated during the magnitude-7 earthquake. The mother said she wept when she thought her daughter had died.  Source
