“She disappeared from sight for just a moment,” Juanita recalls. “She’s a busy child and likes playing in her room by herself.”

As reported by, “Even though the family’s pool [was] surrounded by a fence, that’s the first place they checked for their missing 2-year-old. And that’s when they saw something truly terrible.” Somehow, Kaylin had managed to bypass the pool’s gate. And her parents spotted their daughter’s lifeless body, floating facedown and unconscious in the water.”

Fearing the worst, the Dedekind’s rushed Kaylin to the hospital via ambulance, only to be told that the doctors could not find a pulse, Kaylin was dead.

Unwilling to give up, the Dedekind’s cried out to God for His power to revive Kaylin. For His power to push back death and bring their daughter back. It was then that Kaylin’s heart miraculously started beating again.

“When I finally saw that heartbeat on the monitor, it was as if my entire life changed,” Siegfried recalled.

“I’ve always been a Christian. But that night I gave myself over to God for my child’s life. I’m a reborn Christian now,” Siegfried proclaimed. “It was a terrible time, but we are serving a great God. There was really miracle on miracle,” Siegfried said in regards to Kaylin’s resurrection and supernaturally quick recovery.
