A little over eight years ago, my niece heard these words from a woman, "I will not bring this child into the world." The woman was not an expectant mother, she was my niece's OB/GYN. At five months into her pregnancy, an ultrasound revealed my niece's child had no apparent brain matter . . . . Many experts advised termination of the pregnancy.
. . .
Today, this young boy attends second grade, is preparing to make his first communion, sees and comments on the beauty that surrounds him . . . he is a thriving little person deserving of care. Ultimately, he is a child of God, deserving of the special place in this world that God intended for him.
