Miracles Do Happen

I have been semi-following the blog of a mother who was told at 20 weeks that her son would surely die. Instead of terminating the pregnancy her family decided to carry the baby and pray for a miracle. That miracle came just a few days ago when little Stellan was born. Happy, healthy, and full term. They just went home from the hospital. I know that not everyone who reads this blog is of the praying persuasion, but there is no other explaination for me. He is a living, breathing miracle. Here is a link to her blog.
I would not be honest with you if I didn't tell you that for a second (just a second) I caught myself wondering why she got her miracle and I didn't get mine.

I also read about this family, and I'll be honest, I wondered that, too. When we weren't able to end our pregnancy, I was convinced we would get a miracle, but we didn't. That hurts, but I am still happy for that family.

i agree - i still wonder why were there no miracles for my girls.

Just as everyone else is often hard for me to read miracles because I can't understand why my labor didn't stop and my sons weren't saved...didn't I deserve to keep my sons too?

But I try to pray for everyone.
