There's a good reason why Nereida was flying while so far along.
The family was trying to get to Pennsylvania to spend Thanksgiving with her grandmother, who was diagnosed with cancer and was worried this would be her last Thanksgiving dinner with grandkids and great grandkids. Nereida had been cleared by both her doctor and the airline to fly.
Mom gave birth to a healthy baby girl!
Nereida delivered a healthy baby girl at 2 p.m. Soon after, she and the baby were taken to the hospital. And the baby's name? "We're going to call her Sky," Nereida said. The baby's full name is Lizyana Sky Taylor.
Nereida is so grateful for everyone's help.
"I just want to thank them so much," Nereida said. "Everybody was so great. They're like my heroes. It was an experience that I will always remember." She also went on Facebook to post a message of gratitude.
The family is now trying to raise funds to get Sky back home.
Nereida explained on the GoFundMe page: "It’s cold outside, and we have no baby clothes, car set, etc. We only have what the hospital has available, and we are going to need a rental car. Please help us get baby Sky reunited with our family back home!" So far they have raised $690 of their $4,000 goal.
