After enduring two difficult pregnancies, a Pennsylvania mom believes she received a heavenly sign for her third.
Alicia Zeek, 32, went for an ultrasound on Aug. 1, and the mother of two from Chambersburg did a double-take when she saw the snapshot image. To her, it looked like Jesus in a white robe appeared on the left side, watching over her unborn daughter.
"I didn't really know if what I was seeing was really there,'' Zeek told TODAY. "Once I blinked a couple times and realized it was, an overwhelming sense of peace came over me."
Her fiance, Zac Smith, agreed.
"When I showed it to Zac, he told me, 'See babe, everything is going to be OK,''' Zeek said.
Zeek's oldest daughter, Alazeah, 7, was born with pre-axial polydactyly, a condition that resulted in her having two thumbs on her left hand.
Her son, Kayson, 2, was born with a cleft lip and palette after a birth that was life-threatening for Zeek.
The sonogram helped ease the couple's anxiety, and the birth of their daughter, Briella, went off without any complications on Aug. 22.
