Here we are again, back to March and Trisomy Awareness month. I would like to say Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss who coined the phrase "A person's a person no matter how small." True story. Anyway, I love this little clip about a boy who is living with Trisomy 18, here he explains a little bit about it. He has Mosaic Trisomy 18, Ella had Full Trisomy 18.
What I love most about this video is that Brandon a- defied the odds b- put together a very informative clip and c-points out that "evolutionists say this is a good thing." If evolution were true we sure have "evolved" to a special kind of stupid to think that it's ok to kill those who are "advancing in evolution" by evolving into a more complex being with more chromosomes. Thankfully we know better and know that each one of us were "fearfully and wonderfully made." I refuse to believe that we are here for any other purpose. It is evident even in our children, we are created in His image, to love and be loved! God has a perfect design and purpose for each and every one of us. The human body was made to thrive with 46 chromosomes, and adding to that only takes away from His perfect design, clearly. Ella had 47 chromosomes, which actually meant she was lacking parts, resulting in heart deformities, cleft lip and palate, lung issues and apnea as her brain was not able to read signals from her lungs to breath. She actually defied the odds as her issues were not as life threatening as most happen to be. Some babies are even born without any brain at all, and it is also a fact that they can not reproduce. That alone defies the whole evolution theory, and the reality that most of those who are living with "mutated" cells are unable to live without a lot of support makes it hard to believe that this is basis for human existence. God made Ella as perfect as any other human being. Shortly after she was born Drew found himself asking God how this could be, how when he knew the scripture that said He knitted her together in my womb- Psalm 139. It was then that God revealed to him the depth of that verse, saying to Drew "I formed her inward parts.....and her soul knows me very well." From then on we never, and still refuse, to ask "why?" We know that God did not do any harm to our Ella, she is still made with love and always knew love and will always know love, as she is in the presence of her Creator now. I am not convinced she ever left His presence to tell you the truth, the peace she emitted was beyond all comprehension! Philippians 4:7 That my friends is the power of the Gospel, giving purpose and hope to each and everyone of us. Ella was a daughter, a sister, a grandaughter and a friend at the moment of conception, and I am sure of that.
So in honor of March and Trisomy Awareness Month and Dr Seuss' birthday I want to say "because after all a person's a person no matter how small."
