BCK reader Carolyn responded with her own testimony:
My daughter passed due to Spina Bifida. It was detected when I was 4 months pregnant. The doctor prediction was accurate and she died soon after I gave birth. She was born with multiple abnoralities and the back of her skull was missing. All of her brain was hanging out. She had a area in her back in whic flesh never covered around her spine. This was December of 1996. Don’t know what caused it but I was only told it could have been the fact I didn’t have enough folic acid in me. I was a mes this but have recovered mentally since. That would have been my first child. I now have a 5 year old that God has blessed me with. Hope evrything goes well and GOD proves the doctors wrong
