babyfaithhope.blogspot.com is a blog with an amazing testimony.
It is written by a 23-year-old, unmarried woman, Myah, who in her last year of university (with no maternity leave), found herself pregnant with a baby girl who was diagnosed with anencephaly, which is a birth defect considered to be “incompatible with life.”
Myah was given the option to abort, but refused. She carried her baby to term, and miraculously, little Faith Hope has lived 32 days as of yesterday!
Here is Myah’s testimony from her sidebar:
When I was 19 weeks pregnant, I was told my baby had no brain…. I was told my baby was only alive because she was attached to me but that she couldn’t survive on her own. The doctor said I could continue the pregnancy safely, but my baby would die shortly after being born….
Or I could choose to terminate the pregnancy then, which would mean being induced at 20 weeks and letting my baby die without ever seeing or holding her (I don’t even want to know what they do with babies in this case).
Well, to some people this would be a difficult decision, but it wasn’t for me. I knew there was nothing to gain by terminating the pregnancy and I already loved my daughter more than anyone else in the world. Even if she was unconscious like the doctors said and lived for only a few seconds or minutes – even if she was stillborn – it was worth it to me.
And so we began our journey….
Faith’s story is updated nearly every day. You can see video clips of her reacting to noises, smiling, and sitting up… And Faith Hope is not the only one. It is something most people would scoff at if they didn’t see it with their own eyes. Faith Hope is a beautiful, precious little girl. Myah’s blog is an amazing testimony of how beautiful and precious EVERY life is, and of how every moment counts with these little ones.
I could go on and on, but I just love this blog and read it every day since I found out about it.
Please take a moment and read the blog and watch the videos. They will melt your heart!
