Please read this story of a couple who chose to carry their baby to term, despite knowing he could not live past his birth. An ultrasound revealed abnormalities, and a prenatal genetic test confirmed a fatal defect. Their first doctor suggested an abortion, but they chose life for their son–even knowing he might not live until his birth, and certainly couldn’t live beyond it. They chose to love baby Zeke as much as they could for as long as they could. A beautiful but heart-breaking story.
My thanks to Real Choice for bringing it to my attention.
