If people weren’t asleep in my house when I read Darren Carlson’s post from Monday, I think I would have stood up and cheered! Maybe I should have anyway – this was something worth celebrating.
Darren is President of Training Leaders International and he and his wife are expecting a child in a few months. He wrote on Monday about receiving some hard news about their baby.
He observed that the doctor immediately stopped referring to their baby as a child, and started referring to this little one as a fetus.
A fetus that could be terminated.
Thankfully, the doctors were wrong and their little one is developing normally.
But more thankfully, the news didn’t change how Darren and his wife understood their baby: “in our eyes, nothing had changed.” It is clear, this baby would be welcomed into their family.
Thank you, Darren, for sharing your story! May every father and mother respond this way to such news!
