    So the wish-granting storks in the NBC6 Sports department set up a special meet and greet between the Birdman, and Bird baby.

    The circumstances surrounding this precious little boy are nothing short of
    miraculous.

    The Pereiras – Jessica and Ernesto – have been married for 14 years, and had to conceive a child for eight of them. Their prayers were answered after the couple won an in vitro fertilization procedure off a raffle from the Fertility and Genetics facility in South Florida.

    Jessica and Ernesto call baby Lazaro their "little blessing” and he's already made a big splash in his first 8 months.
