Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.

Thank you for sharing the story. I was not expecting to be a mother when I became one 11 years ago. I was having horrible heartburn so I went to the Dr. to see why. I was currently having my cycle(or so I thought) so I had no thoughts of being pregnant. Family Dr said I needed a pregnancy test(blood test) so I scheduled that with my OBGYN the next day. So I went home(with 2 OTC pregnancy tests) and told my husband. Both tests were positive and we STILL didnt think anything of it.

to make a long story short,my Dr was concerned about my 'bleeding' and sent me down for a sonogram......and the technician said....'well,we have a good heartbeat' emoticon

I balled with shock and joy.....I heard my daughter's heartbeat.....at 6 weeks

....and 13 months later heard my son's......again....at 6 weeks........ emoticon

I have'nt been the same ever since emoticon

What a beautiful story!

I know from information from my La Leche League organization, that the best place for a new born is on his/her mother's chest. Did you know that babies' lives have been saved simply by placing them in "kangaroo care" on an adult's warm chest? This was shown very miraculously in Bogata in South America. Apparently, there was not enough electricity to run all the places in the poor hospital that required it. Therefore, there was circling electricity on a 2/3 off, 1/3 off basis in Emergency, Operating Room, and Nursery. The incubators in the nursery therefore didn't have power 2/3 of the time. The babies were taken out during the "off hours" and placed on any free staff members chests, and covered with a blanket. The babies lived! Tiny, sickly, premies lived!

We know that a mother's chest temperature can vary, depending on the temperature of the tiny baby on her chest - 7 degrees difference to her own overall body temp if necessary! And each breast side can change independently if the mother has twins!

Isn't God amazing?

A mother’s unconditional loveBy Christina Senour

While browsing the internet for stories this morning, I came across an article that literally gave me chills. An Australian woman gave birth to twins at 27 weeks old; her son, Jamie Ogg, weighing in at just two pounds, was “pronounced dead by his physician after medical staff tried for twenty minutes to revive him.”
Jamie is now three years old and perfectly healthy because of the unconditional love of his mother. Stated in the article, “when Jamie was pronounced dead, the doctor handed him to his mother, Kate, so that she could say goodbye to her son. Kate took Jamie into her arms and tearfully caressed her tiny son.”

Kate held him against her chest, talking to him with her husband, telling him how much they loved him. After two hours, “Jamie began gasping for air more frequently, and then Kate gave him a little breast milk on her finger. The baby took the milk, and then he opened his eyes.” This tiny baby was a miracle.

This story was truly touching to me and gives me so much hope for the pro-life movement. Because of Jamie’s mother, his life was saved, and that is truly beautiful. I sometimes find it difficult to search the news because there are so many depressing stories circulating the media, but when I come across stories like this one I can’t help but smile and think that what truly matters in life is the love we have for each other. When we love each other as Christ has loved us, no evil can triumph over us.

“Keep your love for one another at full strength, because love covers a multitude of sins.” I Peter 4:8
