Me and my wife were on our way for counseling about the fetus she was carrying on her womb. The doctor recommended an abortion. Through out all the medical test, they found out that she was carrying an abnormal fetus. Having both a second thought what we have to do, we are confused and was not a pretty feelings with the defeated carrying around the emotional scars through life and is something best left alone and let God take care the rest.
One experience stands out most in our mind as the permanent damage that it can have. We wonder if one of the reason is abortion and get over with, Since, we both grew up in a Christian culture and respectful of human life, we decided not to abort the growing fetus and do the right things of intentions were right and made that decision and accept whatever it maybe and ready to sacrifice as long we continue giving chance of life for our son. Instead of proceeding to the hospital where the doctors are waiting, I made a U turn and headed home. I told my wife that day “Let’s go home, the doctors are not God and most of the time they made mistakes”
My wife cancelled her appointments with that doctor We went to another doctor and the results of the test were the same, our new doctor told us that it’s already seven months, the baby will have a chance to survive and the bad news is that he might be a quadriplegic. Good to know from the doctor what’s the fate for our son when he have a chance to live, me and my wife were both committed for a lifetime sacrifices if it’s going to be.
Six days before Christmas my wife was scheduled on a Caesarean section and on general anaesthesia and we were all ready for the coming to life of our only son .I waited in the waiting room tensed, nervous and having so many different mixed feelings until the nurse called me and telling me a good news that it’s a baby boy, more than 7.9lbs,fair and good skin and most of all healthy, moving his both arms and kicking his legs. Nurse asked me if I’d like to see my newborn son. I was so excited without knowing that I unzipped my Levi’s pants until the nurse told me that zipped my pants first before I can see him with a loud laughter. That tensed feelings and worry vanished upon hearing him crying and whispered to him.” Damned that doctor, If we believed him, we have lost you”
Now, CocoyJR is in high school, he played varsity basketball and football, tall, good fair skin and most of all he has a Hollywood movie star looks. In elementary he always scored 98-99% in SAT test. John Hopkins University wrote us a letter and they are offering him scholarships as long he enroll with them from elementary until he finish his college education. My only son wants to become a fighter jet pilot and he is aiming to enter the United States Air Force Academy. He is a Chickboy though!
