Defending Life

Good thing this little fella's parents ignored doctors' recommendations to abort him because of his problems, which include "water on the brain, a hole in the heart and pyloric stenosis."

My cousin's daughter was born with hydrocephaly; she is now a teenager and doing fine. My own son, almost 15, was born with a hole in his heart. It closed up on its own. And I had pyloric stenosis when I was born, and I'm still kickin' at age.....well, let's just say it's been a while. :)

My favorite line of this article is:

"Just to have had him alive for a few hours would have been better than not giving him the chance of life."
