Rep. Jaime Herrera BeutlerJaime Lynn Herrera BeutlerOvernight Health Care — Presented by the Association of American Medical Colleges — Governors criticize Trump move on pre-existing conditions GOP lawmaker looks to address racial disparities in maternal mortality rates Senate committee to vote on bill tackling maternal death rates next week MORE and her husband are hoping to bring the greatest gift of all home this Christmas: their baby daughter.

The Washington Republican’s office tells ITK that Abigail Rose Beutler, who was born prematurely in July, could join her mom and dad at home by the Xmas holiday.

While pregnant, Herrera Beutler’s yet-to-be-born daughter was diagnosed with Potter’s sequence, which affects the kidneys and can prevent development of a baby’s lungs. Herrera Beutler wrote in a Facebook post that multiple doctors didn’t expect Abigail to survive. But after receiving what the lawmaker described as “unproven treatment by amniofusion,” in which doctors injected saline into the womb, Abigail was born with fully developed lungs. Herrera Beutler, 35, called her newborn’s arrival “a miracle.”

The nearly five-month-old Abigail was recently checked out of a California children’s hospital and moved to outpatient care in the Golden State.

Spokesman Drew Griffin told The Columbian newspaper that Herrera Beutler and her husband, Daniel Beutler, are “thrilled for Abigail to reach this next milestone in her journey and are enjoying their first time spent with their daughter outside of the hospital setting.”

Abigail will eventually need a kidney transplant. Griffin told ITK in an email that his boss’s story “has been an inspiration to us in the office and I know to countless others who have heard it.”
