They said he would never make it. They said no one would question our decision as the pregnancy was earlier than 24 weeks. They said if he did live, he would be severely handicapped.
Each day they filed into our small hospital room with their forecast of doom. They told us that termination – to have an abortion – was our only logical choice. They made it sound easy. They made it sound safe. They said it was our choice.
We told them No. We told them our son’s future was God s choice, not ours.
And God chose Jacob.
Jacob arrived at 26 weeks. He survived. He lived. He lives still.
This is the remarkable story of how one couple trusted their unborn child’s future to God, not the medical professionals.
