Serendipity and a Failed Abortion

A baby survives his own abortion and was born with only minimal problems.

Maybe it's because there is no abortion here that I cannot really contemplate choosing to go that road in cases where I could pass a medical problem to a child that may result in his death. But I know that my greatest fear is to lose a child. And so, yes, maybe I wouldn't risk ever having one if I knew i'd only lose him.

But the Cramptons were on the Pill.

So their son Finley not only went against the odds of being conceived while on the Pill, he also beat the odds of surviving an abortion. Talk about a will to live, not just survive. Talk about the miracle of life. Talk about meant to be. He's all that and more.

If this doesn't humble anyone who hears of it, I don't know what can.

To Finley, may you lead a more interesting life than the one you had in your Mom's womb. I will be praying for you and your sibling's kidney. Who knows, you may even grow up to someday come up with a medical breakthrough where kidneys and genetics are concerned.
