Second post in one day: my sweet friend's story

One of my friends and her husband have 4 beautiful and healthy children. Their youngest is me and my husband's godson-he's 2 and will be 3 in Nov. Her husband has unfortunately gone through some hardships when it comes to jobs and has been let go and laid off quite a bit in the last few years. Each time they financially struggled, somehow, someway God has come through for them (ie: anonymous donors, etc).

Well about a month ago, they received an eviction notice from their landlord because they were late paying rent yet again. A few short days later they found out they were pregnant. They were quite surprised and honestly confused and upset with God's timing.

Some time after that they finally felt at peace with the pregnancy and thanked God for the miracle that she was carrying.

Shortly after being at peace with the pregnancy they went in for the sonogram.

She was 10 weeks.

Almost instantly they could see something wrong with the baby.

There were cyst on both sides of the baby's belly. He had a large cyst growing and applying pressure to his spine. His spine didn't appear to be growing properly. There was a cyst on the baby's head. His intestines were outside of his body.

They were devastated by this, as anyone would be.

Some doctor's recommend people aborting because a lot of the times the cysts will grow so large they can cause a lot of damage not only to the baby but also the mom.

They couldn't understand any of this but trusted God and trusted that good would come from their suffering.

Well, this past weekend I was visiting with her and she showed my the sonogram pictures from that sonogram and my heart broke for them. It was quite obvious there something wrong when I was looking at the pictures, and I am no professional. I had tears in my eyes as she described and showed me all that was wrong with this poor baby.

She was so sweet and had said that the pain and suffering she was experiencing she was offering up for my dh and I, because she knew that we had been trying for so long. I was of course beyond grateful and told her we were praying for her also.

Fast forward to today.

She and her husband were heading to see a specialist for another sonogram and were anticipating the potential of the baby not even being alive. They went to the appointment and when the person doing the sonogram began they were in shock...

There was not one thing wrong with this beautiful baby.

Not one.

All the cyst has disappeared and the organs were growing where they should be-inside of the baby.

They had a few others come in to verify and double check but they first person was correct...this baby was completely healthy.

They said, "you can look at it like there was never anything wrong with this baby or that a miracle has just occurred."

Of course we know it was a miracle.

My heart is leaping for joy for my friend and her sweet family. God is so good and he does work miracles. This is the perfect example of having faith and trusting in Him.

God works miracles each and everyday. know the things that occur where there is no other human explanation for?! Yeah...miracles.


So tonight, as I offer up prayers of thanksgiving for my sweet friend and this beautiful baby, I am always continuing to pray for miracles for each and everyone still waiting.

I trust our Lord. I trust that our miracle will come and I will never give up hope and faith while I am waiting.

Blessed John Paul, pray for us!

Where hope grows, miracles blossom. (Elna Rae)

I am crying. such an amazing story of faith. Also a friend of mine experienced something similar, but the cysts were there for most of her pregancy and doctors thought that the one in the abdomen of the baby would mean she would surely die. Her baby, a girl is now a beautiful 1 year old perfect in every sense. They have the Virgin to thank for.
