Matthew and Sarah Edwards's world was forever changed when they were told at the 12 week scan that the precious baby she was carrying was diagnosed with a birth defect called Anencephaly. This birth defect affects 1 in 4600 babies born in the world. Babies with Anencephaly do not develop a skull and in this case, their brain.
Their hearts are broken because anencephaly is a fatal birth defect and they know their baby will not survive after birth.
"The only thing I find comfort in is giving my baby a voice," Sarah says. "A voice that is small, but matters and a life that will be short, but that God created for a purpose."
Their strong faith and their son Arlo help Matt and Sarah maintain their joy through it all.
I was honored to sit down and chat with this courageous young couple to hear their story.
