After Leah was born a made a promise to myself that I would do all I can to raise awareness about dwarfism, because of dwarfism I have come to meet the most amazing people all over the world , One such mom is Sareta and her little son named Christian.
Thanatophoric dysplasia is a severe skeletal disorder. Type I is characterized by extreme rhizomelia (disproportion in length of upper arms and thighs), narrow thorax, a relatively large head, normal trunk length and absent cloverleaf skull. The spine shows platyspondyly(flattened vertebral body shape with reduced distance between the endplates) the cranium has a short base, and, frequently, the foramen magnum is decreased in size. The forehead is prominent, and hypertelorism (wide set eyes) and a saddle nose may be present.
With all odds against him on 12th April 2011 Christian Simon McRann was born, he was diagnosed with Thanatophoric Dysplasia Type 1.
He was given little hope of leaving the delivery room alive .He is 2 month old and is holding on to life Christian smiles, opens his eyes and stretches his little arms and legs.
All I know is God DOES care, and HIS WAYS are above our ways! I can’t understand why God works the way He works sometime, but I always quotes this verse; “For all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” (Rom 8:28)
Nothing is Impossible
Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It puts us in tune with divine wisdom, which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often we do not pray in certain situations, because from our standpoint the outlook is hopeless. But nothing is impossible with God.
Nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied; no human relationship is too strained for God to bring about human reconciliation and understanding; no habit so deep-rooted that it cannot be overcome; no one is so weak that he cannot be strong. No one is so ill that he cannot be healed. No mind is so dull that it cannot be made brilliant.
Whatever we need if we trust God, He will supply it. If anything is causing worry or anxiety, let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust God for healing, love, and power.
Into the experience of all there come times of keen disappointment and utter discouragement–days when sorrow is the portion, and it is hard to believe that God is still the kind benefactor of His earth born children; days when troubles harass the soul, till death seems preferable to life.
It is then that many lose their hold on God and are brought into the slavery of doubt, the bondage of unbelief. Could we at such times discern with spiritual insight the meaning of God’s providences we should see angels seeking to save us from ourselves, striving to plant our feet upon a foundation more from that the everlasting hills, and new faith would spring into being.
So I call on all my friends and blog readers please keep Christian in ur prayers and send some positive thoughts his way for God has a plan for his life no matter how little he may be.
