Inside a Chicago-area hospital, a baby boy remains in grave condition after his mother was killed. But a photo has emerged of him with his father.

In the photo, taken Sunday by a student pastor, the baby is being held by his father Yovany Lopez. The infant is attached to various tubes and appears to be asleep in his father’s arms. Around the time the photo was taken, the baby opened his eyes.
“We were just praying and praying and he opened his eyes, and his dad said, “Oh my God, he opened his eyes!'” Cecilia Garcia, a student pastor who is assisting the family, told CNN.
“We’ve been blessed, although this is a really bad tragedy, they’re such a loving and humble family and it’s just so wrong what happened to them.”
A missing pregnant woman has been found dead. Her baby was forcibly removed from her womb, police say
Garcia said she was horrified when she first heard about the slaying of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, Yovany Lopez’s pregnant 19-year-old wife.
She was killed last month after she was lured to a Chicago woman’s home on an offer of free baby clothes.
Police say Ochoa-Lopez was strangled and her unborn baby was cut out of her. Her body was found in the garbage can in the backyard of the home. Police arrested and charged three people in the ghastly killing.
Garcia says the country has united in support of the family.
“I felt like I was watching a scary movie when I heard about this. It was really bad,” said Garcia, who is a member of the Lincoln United Methodist church in Chicago.
“But she’s (Marlen) evoked the whole nation of people, pouring their love out for this family. He’s (Yovany Lopez) a single dad now, and we’re praying this baby makes it.”
