Doctors Suggested Abortion, But God Had Other Plans!
The sweet-faced Olivia-Jax is so picture perfect she almost looks like a baby doll instead of a real baby! It’s hard to imagine that doctors suggested abortion not once, but three times. And yet, that’s exactly what happened. Thankfully, her parents didn’t listen, and God answered their prayers!
Melissa and Marshall Joyner were overjoyed they were having a baby girl. They chose the name Olivia-Jax and counted down to meeting their little one.
But then things took a turn for the worst. They were repeatedly told Olivia-Jax would suffer from all kinds of birth defects. As a result, doctors suggested abortion. And had Melissa and Marshall listened, the world would have never known this precious angel.
Marshall shared the adorable photo of their perfectly healthy baby girl on Facebook, along with the stunning story of what happened when he and his wife chose to put their trust in something bigger than science!
“Hi, I’m Jax.
Doctors tried to bully my parents into aborting me three times. They said my intestines were out of my body – my momma and daddy wouldnt let them.
They said my legs and feet were deformed and not worth the mothers risk – my momma and daddy wouldn’t let them.
Then they said I had Trisomy 18 and wouldn’t live outside of the womb – and my mommy and daddy wouldn’t let them. Daddy said he didn’t believe them- he said their evidence was pathetic – daddy said I was fine. My mommy agreed. And went against the will and advice of the top doctors of their field “high risk pregnancy”.
I was born a month early – I’m in the 95+% for everything – my hands and feet are perfect – my tummy is just like it is supposed to be – i don’t have an extra 18th chromosome.
I’m almost 7 months old now because i was born a month early and – I’m fine. My name is Olivia-Jax not fetus not human tissue. I’m a little girl that my mommy and daddy didn’t give up on – and I’m fine”
What an incredible blessing! And an amazing reminder that with God can do anything. Each life is precious, even if the odds look stacked against it. Putting our faith in the Lord above to provide is the best thing we can do.
“But Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26
