Royce and Kerri Young were ecstatic about adding another member to their family until devastating news made their worlds come crashing down.
During a routine ultrasound, a doctor told the Oklahoma residents something that no parent ever wants to hear — their second child, Eva, had anencephaly, a rare birth defect that causes babies to be born without parts of the brain and skull. The condition is as serious as it as rare. Most infants with the disorder don’t survive longer than a few hours or days after birth.
Royce and Kerri were presented with the option of terminating the pregnancy, but they both made an incredibly selfless decision to give birth to Eva so they could donate her organs. Royce was so touched by his wife’s bravery that he recently wrote about how much he loves and admires the way she’s handling their heartbreaking reality. Make sure you have a few tissues at hand as you read his heartfelt message below.
