A thought...

I was just doing some research on one of the conditions the doctor's told us that Brayden had. I felt called to share with you something that I just read in this particular medical journal:
"In some cases where severe defect is detected early in the pregnancy, a therapeutic abortion may be considered."
Excuse me? Do those two terms, therapeutic and abortion even belong in the same sentence?? I have had my share of heartache trying to get others to see the value of Brayden's life. The fact that he is ALIVE should be all the convincing one should need. Aren't we all going to die one day? Brayden is not dead, he is a life, a precious baby that we will always be thankful for. I feel this world has become so that we look more at what is convenient and not what is right. There is no easy solution for Brayden. Of course I wish Brayden was completely healthy, but that doesn't change my love for him or God's love for him. What I know to be true today is that therapeutic abortion or terminating a pregnancy are both generic terms that try to cover up what is really being done to one of God's children. What I know to be right is that God is still knitting Brayden together, God hasn't had the final say yet,and finally Brayden is still alive and we should all praise God for that. Happy Easter everyone.

James 1:17 

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.


  1. That's right, Deana! I am thankful for Brayden's life too! Your journey has really been an example of faith!! Thank you for sharing, even in the hardest times!

  2. Deana,
    My niece Amanda sent me the link to your blog and I'm so glad to be here and "meet" Brayden. He is in my prayers, as are you and Marcus.

    I know some of what you're feeling. I have also carried a very sick baby and rode the roller coaster of hoping God would do a miracle of healing. For us, the miracle was that she was born alive and we got to hold our precious Kali for the hour she lived.

    I pray your miracle is a healthy Brayden.


  3. I am sometimes amazeda t the medical community and the lack of true compassion. How they could call an abortion therapeutic is beyond me. I hope you feel the love for you and my admiration of your unconditional love for your son!!

  4. I love your perseverance and faith through all this. Very inspiring. Praise God for the life he's made!
