‘God would not send you this baby in order to let you perish’: A Romanian mum’s miracle pregnancy

Posted by Joseph on 5 July, 2012

Daniela Popa was given the facts by the medical staff:

The newly discovered life in Daniela’s womb now had three strikes against it. Not only did the little one have to contend with the toxic environment of chemotherapy drugs and tuberculosis antibiotics, but it also had just received a double-dose of radiation, which is known to cause severe health defects to unborn babies.

Doctors strongly urged the parents to terminate.

After the tomography, only one doctor had words of encouragement for the distraught Daniela. “Do you think God has sent you this baby in order to let you perish?”

‘You have no right over the life of that child’

Daniela and Richard approached their ‘spiritual father’, Orthodox priest Ion Popescu, and asked if they should follow the advice of the doctors.

“You have no right whatsoever over the life of that child,” the priest responded gently.

After these words, Daniela and Richard remember experiencing a “big burden” being lifted from their shoulders and “moved onto God’s shoulders.”
