Parents knew their son wouldn’t live long, but they gave him a chance at life

Parents, T.K. and Deidrea Lauxs, knew something was wrong when their preborn son, Thomas, was not developing correctly inside the womb. When they discovered that Thomas suffered from Trisomy 13 Syndrome, a chromosomal disorder that causes severe developmental delays ranging from profound retardation, malformation of the face and head, and incomplete formation of the brain, kidneys, or heart, they knew Thomas would likely live outside of the womb for a short time. Rather than choosing abortion,  T.K. and Deidrea chose to give Thomas a chance at life.

Watch this gripping and powerful story that details the journey these parents took — the emotional struggles and moments of joy — to give their baby boy a chance at life.
