I have a friend, one who is very dear to me, despite the fact that we have never met in person. Tomorrow, she will do something that no mother should EVER have to do. She will give birth to her baby boy, Isaac, knowing that he will return to his maker that very same day.
Isaac has a life ending birth defect called Anencephaly. Anencephaly is when a baby develops with little or no brain. So while he is in her womb, he is alive, and well and moving around like any baby would. Tomorrow, he will come into this world and be loved by Misty, her husband and their three older children but they have to do the most difficult thing I could ever imagine. They have to give him back.
If you would, do me a favour and send Misty and her family all the strength you can spare. Pray that little Issac will live, just for a few minutes, so they can witness his life with their own eyes. Just a few precious moments, that's all they are asking for. I don't think that is too much given the sacrifice they are making.
Misty, know that there many people praying for you as you go through this. We are here for you as you face this, this that I cannot adequately describe.
We are here.
