I recently read a story about a mother who drowned her baby girl in the bath tub. Her pediatrician noticed her long bones looked a little shortened and mentioned that it could be possible that she had a form of dwarfism. The mom couldn’t handle the fact that her daughter would have this because it didn’t fit into her idea of “perfect” so she killed her. The baby didn’t even end up having a form of dwarfism.
When I was pregnant with Jude and going to several different specialist and having to talk to many genetics counselors, I was told more than once that I should abort and try again because my baby didn’t fit under the “normal” category. They looked down on me for saying no to abortion and acted as if I was a horrible person for bringing Jude into the world.
Babies are killed daily because their parents hear they could have something wrong with them so they just end their life. An innocent, beautiful and God given life, gone because they didn’t fit into what society sees as “normal.”
This is the way I see it. It is 100% the medical professionals that stand for and support this atrocity. They deem those who decide to have and keep their children with genetic disorders as abnormal. Having the blood shed of an innocent baby on your hands, whose life you stole from them because it didn’t fit into your idea of “perfection”, this is what is NOT NORMAL.
My own baby has a form of dwarfism. We have our battles but Jude is happy just like any other baby. He is joyful and loving. He is absolute perfection.
Having Jude’s life here has done amazing things. His story has changed hearts and lives. It has been a story of hope to the hopeless. It has been a story of miracles. It has brought joy to all who know him. His life has mended relationships and brought healing. Jude was created for a purpose! I believe every life is. There is no such thing as an abnormal baby.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
