Why is this child portrayed next to the Queen of Peace of Medjugorje?
She was born only because mom and dad refused abortion, even if the doctors were talking about very serious health problems.
In the fifth month of the second pregnancy, an ultrasound had revealed some serious malformations to the child’s brain, which the couple was waiting with so much joy and that she would have called Federica .
The baby was affected by ventriculomegaly (hydrocephalus) and agenesis of the corpus callosum (absence of the corpus callosum).
Ventriculomegaly is a dilatation of the cerebral ventricles , caused by the increase in cerebrospinal fluid. If it does not flow, the fluid inflates the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain, damaging the psychomotor functions.
The agenesis of the corpus callosum is, instead, the absence of the connections between the two cerebral hemispheres.
Federica was impersonated and the doctor proposed to consider the abortion: the child would have been brain-damaged. It was not operable in the womb and, then, after birth, it would have been too late.
While the mother was taken by despair for the news, her husband, a great devotee of Jesus and Mary, showed me calm and sure that God would help them, to come out of that terrible situation.
Medjugorje: a handkerchief blessed on the belly
She was not a practitioner like her husband, and could not quite understand and understand her words and was about to decide to have an abortion. Thus, heated family discussions began. Her husband, then, also strongly opposed the doctor who was also called Christian, but who, in that case, insisted on the interruption of pregnancy, appealing man as selfish, because he wanted the child to be born, even if malformed .
“Nothing escapes the control of God. God is never wrong. If my daughter is malformed it is because God allowed it to be so! (…) And if God, who loves men so much by having sacrificed his own life for us on the cross and who loves my daughter certainly more than me, considers it opportune for his and for our good to make him born disabled, who am I? to oppose his drawing of love ?! “.
The mother was increasingly undecided, divided between those who advised abortion (even among the family) and those who, instead, tried to dissuade her.
He decided to meet with priests, accompanied by her husband.
One of them blessed her belly and she began to “see clearly” and regain peace.
“They explained to me that, through my little girl, I had the privilege of being able to love Jesus Crucified in my house, every day, and to be crucified with Him. They explained to me that this suffering of ours would produce wonderful spiritual fruits “.
In addition, she was holding a blessed handkerchief from Medjugorje on her belly.
A few weeks later, the couple made the last ultrasound and it was then that it was discovered, much to everyone’s surprise, especially by the doctors, that ventricular dilatation was no longer a cause for concern.
Two days later, on October 13th (the day of the last apparition of Our Lady at Fatima), Federica was born and she was healthy and strong.
The doctors commented: “Science can not explain what happened!”
