Protection

This story is awesome: “We’re twinseparable! Happy with his brother, the boy who refused to die“.

Doctors told a woman that one of her to-be-born twins wasn’t in good shape and that he should be aborted for the sake of the other twin. But Gabriel had other plans and among them was LIVING.

At Birmingham Women’s Hospital, when Mrs Jones was 25 weeks pregnant, doctors tried to sever Gabriel’s umbilical cord to cut off his blood supply and allow him to die.

But the cord was too thick, and they could not cut through it.

As a last resort they divided Mrs Jones’s placenta so that when Gabriel died, it would allow Ieuan to survive. Mrs Jones said: “I put my hands on my stomach thinking of Gabriel. It was devastating. I had said my goodbyes.”

But the next morning Mrs Jones felt Gabriel kicking. A scan showed his heart was still beating. She said: “No one could quite believe it.”

Gabriel hung on, and his enlarged heart started to reduce in size. He also gained weight.

Let’s start praying protection for all those babies the enemy is taking out before they even see their parents’ faces. Surely there can be more stories like this.
