Miracle Baby Survives!
Raped, alone and left for dead.
Alexis laid in a pool of her own blood. She had survived another savage beating. Forced into sex trafficking by the man that claimed to love her, beaten and stripped of her freedom; isolated from friends, family and everyone she knew, Luis warned her that to contact her relatives would be a death sentence for her and for her entire family. Paralyzed with fear for her own safety and the well-being of her family, she endured beating after beating and was routinely raped by 25 or more men every single day.

A Daring Escape.
It was now or never. Alexis picked her broken body up off the floor and knew that if she didn’t leave the brothel tonight, she would die there. She feared for her family, but she refused to die alone in that horrible place of rape and torture. A daring escape and an agonizing journey to freedom; she clawed, crawled and limped her way to the nearest emergency room. She knew that she was lucky to be alive, but what she didn’t know was that she was pregnant, and her baby’s life was in grave danger.
A Baby’s Life is in Danger.
Years trapped as a sex slave had ravaged her body. Alexis was suffering from so many sexually transmitted diseases, and they were endangering both her life and the life of her unborn baby. Recognizing the urgency and the gravity of the situation, and fearing for her safety; authorities immediately placed Alexis into the care of our Unlikely Heroes restoration home where our experienced team began to take care of Alexis and her unborn child. Our home was able to provide immediate safe housing, nutrition, legal assistance and the extra medical care that she so desperately needed so her baby could survive.
A Miracle Baby.
On August 7, 2016 a miracle happened, and beautiful baby Maribel was born weighing in at a healthy 6 pounds, 3 ounces, but both mom and baby still have a long road to recovery ahead of them! Alexis and baby Maribel are safe and living at our Unlikely Heroes restoration home, but we still have a lot of work to do to provide Alexis and baby Maribel the resources, medical care, education, support, job training and life skills so they can build a better life.
