It was a frightening ride for Laura Goncalves and her 12-year-old daughter Tanisha Andrade back in December. The pregnant woman attempted to drive to the hospital, but her contractions were so severe she went into labor. Tanisha, who was on the passenger side, called 911 and helped deliver her baby sister.

Veronica Kpodo is also proud of her daughter Priscilla Tsagli.

The 9-year-old girl called for help after seeing her mom choking from a pill. Her daughter’s quick action saved her life.
