I am one of those people who have looked at an ultrasound screen, and been told that there was something wrong with the baby.....and it makes me so sad to think that others would have aborted what would become this.....
Both of these little people have had tracheostomies. and between them, there have been eighteen surgeries so far. Life for them is.....life. Sometimes hard, sometimes very, very hard.....and sometimes glorious....like on beautiful Fall days with a little chill in the air and glow in the sky. They were meant to be here. They are a testament to life, even when it isn’t perfect, and their little bodies need extra help....they make others better, they aren’t just a syndrome to be done with.
Embracing life is embracing imperfection.....and trials.....and running like crazy on Fall days, even if you have to stop every once in a while to have your trach suctioned, or have food down your g-tube.
God bless all of those walking tomorrow in the March for Life in Washington DC. We stand united in prayer, especially in this house.....giving witness to those special needs children who should have a chance to smile on a Fall day.
