Our Baby News

Our lives veered off in a seriously strange direction on Tuesday 1 July, with the disclosure at a standard multi week output of a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in child – for this situation there is no stomach on the left side, permitting different organs to float into the chest hole, uprooting the heart and crushing the lungs.

We were alluded to King Edward for expert consideration under Prof. Jan Dickinson, and through an amniocentesis it was found that child had Pallister-Killian Syndrome, an intriguing chromosomal issue. A few infants are somewhat impacted, however many will have serious to significant scholarly incapacity, will be wheelchair bound, as well as have numerous other extreme actual turn of events and medical problems. As a feature of the condition, my significant other has a lot of amniotic liquid (Polyhydramnios) and that implies the ‘knock’ is a lot bigger than it ought to be, and jeopardizes pal of an early birth.

At the current week’s output we at last educated the visualization the group of specialists are giving for our child, and that there are obvious signs for our situation that child won’t get by.

It is hard to make sense of the distress we are currently encountering. At first it felt like we were in a quiet before a tempest as we felt like everyday life was much as it was previously. Yet, with the current weeks news it is presently like the tempest mists are beginning to come in.

Thus we come to how would we petition God for child, and all we can manage to say is – God’s will be finished. Our God is a God who can play out a wonder in this little child’s body in the event that he so wishes. Our God is additionally the God who, in the expressions of Job (Job 1:21), compromises away. How then do we ask? In the event that God’s will child gets by – that there will be more than adequate time for the lungs to develop, the organs are kept down by God’s hand to permit space for the lungs to develop and develop, and that child flourishes and has a satisfying life. Furthermore, assuming it is God’s will that we just know this child for a brief time frame, that God will make that unmistakable to us both and we will know when to give up.

We actually need to hear others’ news – we need to celebrate with you in your uplifting news and lament with you in your not extraordinary news as well, similarly as you also ride the rush of distress with our child news.
