I knew I would be in for a good cry when I clicked on the link to a video about one couple's decision to have their baby boy despite the diagnosis of trisomy 13. What I got was not only a dose of tears but a dose of faith and inspiration and awe. The video, which traces the pregnancy, birth and short life of Thomas should be required viewing because it is a reminder of the power of one small life, no matter how brief, no matter how seemingly "flawed."
Watch the video. Please. Share the video. This is the kind of thing that can change hearts and minds. Click HERE to watching "Choosing Thomas." To read the mom's diary of her baby's life, click HERE. Thank you to Ed Mechmann at Varia for highlighting this gem.
