The family enjoyed a little (big) miracle.
The Pattonai family from Arizona faced a huge surprise when their son Finley was born with a proud weight of 6.5 kilograms. Mama Carrie Patunay and Papa Tim are thrilled about their wonders – because the couple previously suffered several miscarriages.
Mama Carey has miscarried repeatedly
Baby Finlay is a real miracle, says Mama Carey in an interview with the American news portal “Local 12”. Before that, she and her husband tried for a year to have a brother for their sons Devlin (10 years) and Efrat (2). The family’s mother from Peoria, Arizona, had to go through a lot before: In the year before Finlay was born, she struggled with two miscarriage.

The planned caesarean section at the 38th week of pregnancy had to be offered daily because the amniotic sac had ruptured. Only – oops – that Finley would be such a big piece, no one expected it. His height is 61 cm and about 6.5 kg – this is not familiar even to the attending doctors and nurses. They said: Oh my God! And Mama Carey remembers, I couldn’t believe she was so big. “When they weighed it in, they said ‘6.4 kilos! We’ve never seen anything so big!” Then hospital staff asked if they could take selfies with the mother and baby, Carey said.
