PLUCKED FROM THE NEWS…Imagine that you and your significant other go to the doctor for your baby’s 19 week ultrasound. How exciting is that?
Then you hear the word anencephaly and all your excitement is quickly replaced with a feeling of devastation.
Anencephaly is a birth defect with serious consequences. This condition prevents normal development of the brain resulting in parts of the brain and skull missing. Almost all of these babies die shortly after being born.
When Keri Young was told that her unborn daughter, Eva, had anencephaly it didn’t take long for this remarkable woman to decide that she would carry the baby to full term in hopes of donating Eva’s organs.
Her husband, Royce Young who is a writer for ESPN shared the ordeal on a Facebook post.
In my opinion I believe Keri to be a very courageous and compassionate woman. I absolutely support what she is doing.
What about you?
This is a wonderful gift to others in need. She is brave and courageous in my opinion. thanks for posting this and supporting her.
I agree Anne. I am not sure if I could do it. She must have such bitter/sweet emotions. Sad that her baby won’t live but happy that she will be able to give someone else a chance at life.
Thanks for your soul uplifting works…. I am blessed by your word….
You are welcome. I am glad to pass on such stories…
I can only agree with you, Cheryl 🙂
Thank you. It’s hard to only pick ten songs for the blog when there are so many more good ones.
I totally agree – even if her baby can never live a full life, she can help others to live theirs to the full.
Through her pain she still thought of others. What a compassionate woman she is.
I totally agree. She has so much love, even in grief.
It’s amazing to me that she could see through all her grief and think of others….
I support her bravery.
