Mamička Vanessa McLeod túžila po štvorčlennej rodine. Preto, keď sa dozvedela, že pod srdcom nosí ďalšie dieťatko, bola šťastím bez seba a veľmi sa tešila. Avšak potom prišiel veľký šok. Lekári zistili, že dieťatko bude choré a odporúčali jej ísť na potrat.

Podľa slov lekárov sa dieťatko malo narodiť s chybou srdca a bez časti horných končatín. Mamička ale potrat odmietla a ďalej žila so svojim drobčekom v brušku. V druhom trimestri sa dozvedela ďalšie negatívne správy. Vraj dieťa má vážnu vývojovú chybu a opäť jej navrhovali potrat.

Manželia znovu odmietli a na svet prišla ich dcérka Ivy. Dali jej šancu na život a sú šťastní, že sa neriadili slovami lekárov. Naštudovali si všetko o zdravotnom stave dcérky a urobia všetko preto, aby sa mala dobre. Ako vravia, kašlú na slová ľudí a berú Ivy takú, aká je. Veselé a bezstarostné dieťa tak vďaka sile a presvedčeniu rodičov dostalo šancu na život.

With preschool starting for Elena, I’ve noticed some huge changes. Her vocabulary has exploded, she’s become much more sociable with other kids, and she’s just blossoming and growing up faster than I’d like ❤️ She also did something else for the very first time.. she commented on the fact that Ivy doesn’t have hands. She’s never done this before. (It’s not bad, I’m just feeling overly emotional about a lot of things lately.) When Ivy and I drop Elena off at preschool, the other kids love saying hi to Ivy, and last week one girl looked at Elena and said “your baby doesn’t have hands!” Which is totally okay, it wasn’t anything negative, just an innocent observation. But I could see Ellie’s brain turning, and she didn’t say anything back— she just kept holding on to Ivy’s little arm. But then we came home and while playing with Ivy, she said “Mommy, Ivy doesn’t have hands.” So then I showed her that it’s okay, Ivy will just use her feet, and she was made that way ❤️ and we played with Ivy’s feet for the next few minutes. I’m sure they’ll both have a lot of questions as they grow up, I think this just caught me off guard because Ellie’s never said anything before. I know she’ll always look out for her little sister, though. This morning she hugged Ivy and played with her and kept calling Ivy “my princess,” and told her how much she loves her. Watching these two together just makes my heart so full. ❤️just some Sunday morning ramblings.
