A two-year old baby girl who was born 25 weeks premature, and was fitted with tubes in her throat in order to save her life, finally spoke her first words and told her parents that she loved them.
South Yorkshire's Bronte Cassell was born 25 weeks premature and weighed just one pound. A number of medical complications meant that doctors had to fit in tubes to help her breathe. Bronte spent her first two years communicating with just hand signals or mouthing the words.
AdvertisementThe tubes were recently removed by the doctors and the first words that she spoke were to her father and mother, "I love you daddy. I love you, mummy."
"We just looked at each other and cried. It was the first time we had ever heard her really speak", Bronte's mother Hellen told the Daily Mail.
