– capable of living
– having the ability to grow, expand, develop
Hundreds of pregnant women all over this world, every day, are being told that the child they are carrying is not a “viable fetus.”
Who determines the meaning of the viability of life?
What would a doctor classify as viable?
How about a lawyer?
What about a parent?
Better yet, whose life would God determine as “viable?”
Society as a whole has taken upon itself to set certain standards, goals and objectives that a person should have the abilities to achieve in order to be determined as viable.
And yet, from one culture to the next, those standards vary greatly. From person to person, the definition of viable fluctuates with the same uncertainty as the varying palate of each individual’s own taste buds.
So, when faced with an adverse prenatal diagnosis, where can a family turn for answers?
It is our desire to share with you through this website, stories of hope, stories of how God uses every life to display his character, for within each and every one of us, God has created the capacity for a relationship with him. God also gives us the ability to touch others around us and it is sometimes through those least expected, that God can touch us in the most profound of ways
I Corinthians 12:18-26 “But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be?As it is, there are many parts, but one body.”
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”
On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.
And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment.
But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
