When I was 12-years-old I spent my days watching Futurama, Malcolm in the Middle, and My Name is Earl while clinging onto the hope that someday my very shit football skills would lead to turning pro.
Spoiler: they didn’t and that’s why I’m writing these words to you now but what I’m trying to say is, some 12-year-olds, 12-year-olds like Jacee Dellapena, don’t do the normal thing for their age.
Just last Tuesday, Jacee helped deliver her baby brother after her mother went into labor at Baptist Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi, reports MS News Now.
The story goes that the doctor working with Jacee’s mum, Dr. Walter Woolfe, noticed how the young gal was doing all she could to support her mum.
Walter decided that it wouldn’t be any trouble if he allowed Jacee to deliver her little brother with his helping hand and guidance.
The 12-year-old revealed all to MS News Now, saying:
I started crying because I thought I wasn’t going to get to see him be born, because I was too short.
Doctor Wolf said, “Why don’t you just let her suit up and deliver the baby?”And I said “What? No!”
Eventually Jacee’s mother gave birth to a healthy seven-pound, six-ounce baby boy named Cayson.
