"Immediately, I asked about the cystic hygroma not being measured," she said. "She gave me this sweet smile and told me that there was nothing there to measure. It was gone."
Kate's pregnancy went on rather uneventfully until November 5th, when her precious baby boy was born: "He was perfect. 10 fingers, 10 toes and a head FULL of hair! The doctors were shocked. So much so, they ran every test possible trying to figure out something that must be wrong with him. They all came back negative and clear. He does have a very common small heart murmur that is expected to close on its own. That’s all."
"The baby that was given 0% percent chance of survival is here and healthy," Kate wrote. "I cannot fathom the idea that I could have changed my mind on November 4th. Just said, 'To heck with it,' because I changed my mind about having this baby."
When a doctor gives us any sort of advice or order, so many of us take it as though it were gospel truth. Our hearts should ache for the thousands of mothers who, unlike Kate, simply took their doctor's word and aborted children who could have lived happy and healthy lives. Just as bad, the practice of aborting children with "undesirable" defects and conditions promotes such a despicable view of special needs children as a joyless burden.
Still, we know the living God who holds the world in his hand, and this is something that continues to give Kate strength: "I choose life. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. I will pray for New York and the leaders that made that decision. As I know all too well, nothing is too big for God
