On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Chris and Julie Reuschel share their moving story of being pregnant with a baby girl who was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 and would likely die before she was born. The couple gave her the hope-filled and beautiful name Faith, and she remained in the womb for 37 weeks. When Faith was born, she had no heartbeat. But a few seconds later, God intervened, and she began breathing, allowing Chris and Julie to have 45 priceless minutes with her before she passed. The Reuschels have since sought to bring good out of their tragic experience by founding a ministry called Faith45 which helps families through infant loss by supplying resources to support them in their grief. Listen in and be encouraged by this wonderful reminder of God's beautiful miracle of life.
