Do you believe in miracles?
This is an amazing story – I’m so glad they told it in video form because it adds so much texture. Forgive the spoiler, but baby Isabella, who could have been terminated was born perfectly healthy. After ultrasound detected no bladder or kidneys, termination was recommended. In addition, complicating the situation was placenta previa – potentially dangerous for the mom without very close monitoring. Watch the story.
Baby Isabella’s outcome reminded me of another story that caught my eye several years ago. A Texas couple learned their baby girl was missing her kidneys and had little to no amniotic fluid – suggesting a fatal condition for the child. The parents decided they would terminate, but the Catholic hospital would not permit them to . . . and what follows is another incredible story.
