Baby Samantha weighed on 13 ounces when she was born. For the past three months she has been in the neonatal intensive care unit. Her parents, Victor and Angela Gale have been there every step of the way as their baby fights for her life. At one point, doctors told her parents it Samantha's chance didn't look great, after a problem with her intestines. Now four pounds, Baby Samantha has overcome many hurdles, and her parents have faith that she will come out on top. KSLA News 12's Domonique Benn introduces us to Baby Samantha.
