The famous proverb "I love you to the moon and back" seems very contextual for an Argentinian mom who came back to life from near death because her daughter needed her and saying NO to her child is not something a mother could do.
Maria Laura Ferreyra, 42, of San Francisco, Argentina, had spent 30 days in a vegetative state after facing an assault while on her motorbike, reports The Sun.
The doctors had lost all hopes and even suggested the family that they should consider donating her organs. But her husband, Martin Delgado, was not ready to give up on her and said that while "those words we hard", he was sure that she is going to wake up. Fifteen days after being in a coma, Maria's reports showed some neurological activities but she did not wake up.
However, after a few days when her youngest daughter visited her to the hospital, they all saw a miracle happen. The little girl sat beside her mother on the bed and started making the noise she usually made when she was hungry.

Maria then pulled down her gown and started to breastfeed her, The Sun reported. Martin said, "It was a magical, unique moment. We all cried. Seeing how they hugged each other, that motherly instinct, it was amazing."
According to The Sun, the local media suggested that Maria has still not regained consciousness. Neither is she aware of her surroundings nor is she responding to words. But this incident has strengthened Martin's belief that she will wake up and return to her family soon.

He is hopeful that "now all the good things start, she is going to be able to be with her kids". Reportedly, the couple has three children, aged 17, 13 and two years old.
He also said, "She touched her as she used to before the accident." The father-of-three added that "now all the good things start, she is going to be able to be with her kids". He is also fighting a legal battle to win justice for his wife and his children who cannot wait to have her mother back. And going by this miraculous incident, it is clear that Maria is also putting up a fight against all odds to unite with her family.
Martin said, "What we hope is justice is done, for the three kids who are waiting for her and are suffering a lot".
