2 days ago my older sister went in for her anamoly scan, expecting to be greeted by her healthy baby, she didn't get the good news she prayed for, at 21 weeks her unborn son (my nephew) was diagnosed with a heart defect, and upon sighted the sonographer had to terminate the scan.
Yesterday, she was scheduled for an appointment down at London hospital to determine the outcome of her unborn child, there was no hopeful news, his heart was not developed enough to survive, a tube was missing and the valves wern't formed, and he was not expected to make it to his 10th birthday, he wouldn't be able to run, walk, and even said would be brain damaged. Today I pray for her health, and I cry for his, for a heartbeat will stop today, two eyes will not open to see the world, a cry will never be heard.
The abortion is scheduled for today, and over the course of the next few days she will have to live knowing her baby is dead in her womb, and then give birth to him.
Please, all I am asking for is just some kind hearted prayers, no discrimination or judgement for her descision, she's devestated and will always remember these days for many years to come.
R.I.P to a beautiful baby boy who was so wrongly taken. I love you nephew.
