Hope Clinic Presentation - the story of Noah & Owen
press pause to stop music
In the spring of 2006 we found out we were both expecting our third child and due within three weeks of each other. Kristin's son Noah was diagnosed prenatally with a fatal syndrome, but defying all odds, was born alive, lived 1 hour and 42 minutes, and was loved into eternity by his mommy and daddy. Jen's son Owen was diagnosed prenatally, just three months after Noah's diagnosis, with multiple birth defects. At first doctors thought his condition would be fatal as well, but Owen has defied the doctors' predictions and has faced his many challenges with a smile. Two years after Noah died Kristin and her husband found out they were expecting again. They were thrilled to find out it was a girl and devastated to find out that her heart had not formed properly. Her diagnosis, a "random" birth defect, was not at all linked to Noah's genetic disorder. Doctors suggested terminating these "defective" babies to both of us. Time and time again God has proven his sovereignty, power and mercy to us and many others through these two little boys and precious little girl. We hope and pray that through them you will understand God's deep love for you and every human life.
