Love, Hope and Miracles; Miracle Baby

This post is to let anyone interested know about a little guy surviving against all odds. He was born a Thanatophoric Dwarf. It is also called thanatophoric dysplasia. You can look it up on the web. This condition is considered not compatible with life and usually the only treatment offered to most moms is a theraputic abortion. Well this little guys family said no, and by the grace of God this little tyke is surviving against all odds. He will be 3 in August. He is just too cute. Docs had even said he would be a vegetable and not be able to give or receive love or smile or interact. Well you can see by his darling smile the Docs were wrong. He needs continued support and prayer.
Here is his website: Samuel's Website
Samuel's name means God Hears
Thought I would post a nice story.

What a cutie! I'll send up a prayer for him and his family. I printed your pea soup recipe. I'm going to make it Monday. Have a great weekend!

What a trooper! He sure looks happy doesn't he? :-)

I get so angry when I hear an abortion was recommended because a child will be a "vegetable." Who says a person's life is less valuable just because he cannot "give or receive love"? That's reason to kill somebody? Ugh!

Obviously this little guy is no "vegetable" - but even if he was, he would still be a child of God and his life is just as valuable as anyone else's.
