In 2005, our son was given a “not compatible with life” diagnosis in my twentieth week of pregnancy in Tampa, Florida. My husband and I chose to not terminate our bundle of joy and Samuel was born via c-section on August 2nd. Relying on our faith, we faced many tenuous weeks in the hospital which turned into months in a struggle for our son to survive and wean off the hospital ventilator. Though our son’s diagnosis means “death bringing” in Greek, God had other plans and our son came home at six months old.
