A Miracle

Have I mentioned that I'm in a small group through my church youth group?  Well, I am.  And this year, my small group leader is a young mom (married, of course).  And she and her husband are now expecting twins.  Well, about a month ago, they found out one of the twins wasn't doing very well.  His fluid-what babies use to grow and strengthen their lungs-was very, very low.  And the doctors were saying he didn't have much chance of survival. :( It was pretty devastating for my small group leader and her husband.  But this past Tuesday, she had another appointment, and guess what?  Baby B's (that's what the doctors call him since he'll be born second) fluid level is pretty normal now!  God works in mysterious ways, and this is one of them.  One doctor told my small group leader that it's very rare for a baby's fluid level to increase...but Baby B's has.  God definitely has made a miracle happen.  There's still a chance that it could drop, I think, and his growth rate might not be as high as Baby A's.  But there's a lot more hope now... God is definitely awesome.

  1. Amen! When I was born, I had a hole in my heart and they were going to have to do open-heart surgery on me. But, when they took me to get checked out by the heart doctor he said, "Why are you here? There's nothing wrong with this baby!" My heart had been completely healed! God is so amazing... :D
