“It seemed like a relaxing breath, like he was OK. It didn’t seem like he struggled,” Nader said, according to the report. “It was God’s way of telling us his last breath was OK.”
Nader, Baby Joseph's mother on his passing. Baby Joseph was given a relatively minor surgery to insert a tube to help him breathe in America that the Canadian government refused to administer. after his surgery, Joseph was allowed to live out the rest of his time in the comfort of his own home surrounded by the family who loved him.
Without the tube his last breath wouldn't have been "relaxing", he would have died a much more painful death in the cold sterile environment of a hospital. His life may not have been worth much to the Canadian government, but it certainly was to his family.
Rest in Peace Joseph.
