He is indeed a miracle and here is how Forrest Wayne; the baby born without arms and legs will make you believe in miracles.
Motherhood is the sweetest gifts of all and the greatest spiritual journey of all.
Meet Forrest Wayne, the beautiful baby born without arms and legs will make you believe miracles exist.
Alexandra comes from a nature-loving and organic food loving family who are not so positive about the medical system.
She says, “While I did have regular visits to the OB, I declined my late-term ultrasounds and opted for as little intervention as possible.”
They had regular prenatal care and went for all their tests; according to everyone, everything was OK.
Until the 41st week when they went for an ultrasound in order to make sure the baby is ok and she was approved to wait for the delivery.
More than a week past their due date, they got to know that there were limb abnormalities.
After Forrest was born, they noticed that he had never grown his arms or legs.
It was a really emotional journey but the parents went through it because of love.
She says, “Forrest entered the world in September and has already taught so many of us about the real power inherent in love.”
Because the conditions were all sudden and it was impossible to hold in the fight, the parents took over to gofundme.
She says, “The call for help was answered by a community of the most prayerful and faithful people. Within days of announcing his birth, we were more than halfway toward our goal with over $50,000 in funds, which would be put toward his future needs. We received donations in the form of diapers, and therapists offering service; we received donations in the forms of prayers, and well wishes, and love.”
Forrest has taught everyone to show as you are and love with our hearts wide open.
We, sincerely spend so much pretending that we are ok and that we don’t need anyone but perhaps, if we open up a bit and admit we are not doing okay, life will give us more chance to serve.
It feels good to serve one another, doesn’t it?
