Choosing Thomas

A friend of mine posted this story, and I wanted to share it with you as well. It is the story of a couple who chose not to "terminate" their pregnancy after learning that their son had a severe genetic disorder. The text below is from the blog of Denny Burk.

Twenty weeks into their pregnancy, T. K. and Deidrea Laux found out that their son had Trisomy 13—a rare DNA abnormality. After being counseled that “terminating the pregnancy” would be an option, they chose life. In Deidrea’s own words:

“We didn’t not terminate because we were hanging on to some sort of hope that there was a medical mistake or there was gonna be some sort of medical miracle. We didn’t terminate because he’s our son.”

The Dallas Morning News has produced this video chronicling the birth and home-going of Thomas. This is an amazing story of love and life, and you need to watch it.

What a testimony of the grace of God.

Love in the Truth.
