Brenden is delivered, and he cries his first sounds as if to tell his mom and dad that he is here. Medical knowledge says he can’t sense much, lacking the upper parts of his brain. But I see him respond to his mommy and daddy with squeals. What do the experts know? God allowed him to be born this way, and his mother rejoices with tears as her wish to see him alive is granted. God has been gracious to all involved. Following lots of photos and tears, I realize that we are so much richer for having been involved in Brenden’s birth.
Brenden only lived 14 hours after birth, but at least his mom and dad held him in their arms
