At 17 weeks pregnant Amy was told that her baby, Serenity Grace, had Anencephaly; a rare and fatal neural tube defect in which the baby is born without parts of the brain and skull. Her doctors told her the baby may not survive birth or die shortly after. She was faced with the decision to terminate or carry her to term. This brave and beautiful mama chose to carry her baby to term in hopes of donating Serenity’s organs to another baby in need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I kept asking God for a miracle. And I knew my miracle would be what many wouldn’t consider a miracle. But I knew God would give me something. And I think her smile was that miracle. How can a baby possibly smile even with no heartbeat? Yet she did and she kept that smile! Miracles sure do come in many forms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today I have to say goodbye to you. Today I have to walk away. I sit here holding you. You’re skin against mine. Your body so real. You’re so present. Yet I see your body is failing. The natural process of death is taking place and I know I need to let you go. How am I going to physically place you in the arms of another and walk away from you? The despair in my heart is to much to burden. I want you to stay. I want to hold you forever. I just can’t stop crying and kissing your beautiful lips and cheeks and telling you thank you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you hunny for coming into my life and saving me and blessing me. Given the chance I’d do this all again just for you. For everything you’ve brought me and what you have brought to others. I will always always carry you in my heart and make sure your memory is never forgotten.
