Down syndrome pregnancy completely healed!
This testimony touched me personally because it’s so similar to the testimony regarding one of my own daughters. In the 1980’s at an early pregnancy check up, late on a Friday afternoon, we were told there were strong indications/results that our daughter would be born with down syndrome.
If that news wasn’t shocking enough, it was also strongly recommended by the nurses that we terminate the pregnancy.
Wow, what started as an exciting afternoon, came to a screeching halt. I think I literally had difficulty exhaling hoping what I heard wasn’t real.
The overwhelming news shocked our world and having drifted from God at the time, this still caused us terrible distress to consider such a harsh recommendation.
Even though someone we trusted and respected was strongly recommending termination, and even though such a horrible option seemed somewhat socially acceptable to consider in that decade, I believe the spirit of God deep inside us told us that an abortion was wrong.
After four days of what I believe was a “spiritual battle” for our daughters very life, we decided to trust in God and had great peace about the decision to keep the baby. Although I had peace (no doubt from God not my own means), if I’m honest, I can admit it didn’t seem like my faith was very strong back then and I was actually prepared for the worst. I’m so grateful that we had friends who prayed, and stood in the gap with their own prayers and strong faith….so grateful.
Today, I’m happy to say my daughter is now a healthy, beautiful, brilliant grown up woman who graduated from Grad School with honors, and currently embarking on her own faith building journey called life…..God is so good!!
Check out this similar story of another miracle healing by Jesus, from Steve and Holly Trover through Andrew Wommack Ministries:
As time progressed and their three beautiful children, Joshua, Luke and Chloe grew, Holly chose to capture the joy of motherhood by having a professional portrait taken of the children. She had the portrait framed and with deep satisfaction hung it on the wall in their family room. The Trover family was content.
2 years later, in 2008, Steve like many business owners began to see the economy slow. As a result he turned to the Lord and began to seek His wisdom for their business. As he prayed for God’s direction, the Lord began to impress on Steve’s heart that they were to have another child. This was not quite the guidance Steve was seeking. Steve resisted sharing the news with his wife for a couple of months until finally, one night while working at his computer, God said it was time to tell her.
Although Holly was completely surprised by Steve’s news, the two conceived their fourth child almost immediately.
Several months into the pregnancy, when the time came for Holly to have her second ultrasound, the doctor delivered some devastating news. After careful measurement and calculation the doctor said that there were several factors that clearly indicated that the baby would be born with Down syndrome. The doctor went on to show the Trover’s in detail what led her to the diagnosis. Before leaving the room, the doctor went as far as to talk about possible termination of the pregnancy through abortion.
Termination of the pregnancy was not an option for Scott and Holly.
The enemy had come to steal from Steve and Holly, but they stood their ground. Drawing on the revelation they had received from Andrew’s teaching in their church small group, and knowing that it was God who spoke to them about having another child, they refused to believe that this was God’s plan for their baby. In the face of this negative report of a medical reality in the natural, Steve, standing on faith in God’s word, took his authority and rejected the diagnosis. “I cancel this diagnosis in the name of Jesus. We don’t believe these things that were spoken over our child and we don’t accept it…” Steve rebuked.
Several months later the Trover’s returned to the doctor’s office for another ultrasound. The couple entered the examining room determined to see different results. After a long time passed, the doctor finally spoke and said that if this had been the first time that she had seen this baby, she would have told the Trover’s that their baby was perfect in every way. However, in disbelief, the doctor continued to take measurements. Finally, exasperated, the doctor threw up her hands; she couldn’t offer any explanation for the transformation she saw in the Trover’s baby.
Yesterday my husband and I also were shared with the news that our baby boy will have Down’s Syndrom. I am in my 22nd week of pregnancy. We also declare this diagnosis not to be true, and we are praying for a miracle. Please pray with us, that our little boy will be completely healthy as well!
Hi Christina, my husband and I just watched the YouTube video and he showed me your comment.
My husband and I also received news just this week that our baby boy has Down syndrome and I’m almost 21 weeks pregnant so I know exactly how your feeling. We are praying and rallying for our son that he will be healed, but we are also asking for the strength and courage to give us peace for the plans that God has already planned for him.
I’ll also be praying for yourself and your husband that you continue to seek and lean toward God. Because he has already planned everything for our babies.
Can I ask what tests you’ve done and if they have found anything else with baby?
I look forward to hearing from you and if you would like to email privately my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thaank you! Thank you! Thank you! for doing more than writing a column but doing this video! If I may I would like to share my story and ask what was your “mental method” in between the diagnosis and the second specialist visit?
My story is very similar at its start but my husband and I are still looking forward to have our “testimony on paper” so to speak.
Ill explain. our first born (Zoe) was diagnosed in utero with a heart defect. because of the heart defect type they also gave us a high ratio that this particular defect also means down syndrome. When we were given the news It was as if I could not process the information and just cried. My husband said we believe in the Most High god and do not receive that diagnosis then and there. We were also told that abortion was an option and declined. I was not surprised at the offer but the persistence of the offer. When we left the hospital we began looking to everything in Gods word for a in depth study of healing. My husband went on fasts and both of our families are saved and we had a family prayer meeting.
January 29 Our Zoe was born and the doctors confirmed her diagnosis by kareotype. She had a 3 month stay in NICU and we continued to pray, fast and my husband would go visit others a pray for their children who he would meet in the support groups.
Zoe’s heart was healing even though the doctors said there was no way saying “its a car without a whole engine”. We knew this vecause we kept requesting ultrasounds of her heart and the nurse thought he was looking at a repair ultrasound. Although after discussing this with our doctor we still went through with the surgery. Because we kept asking for more time but our doctor said if we asked “for any more time he would have to report us to social services and would no longer fee comfortable being our pediatric cardiologist”.
So fast forwarding to our daughters heart surgery went very well and she is well!
What is stumping me in our situation is she was also diagnosed with TMD and Hypothyroidism and is healed of those completely. The specialist she saw for those things said “we have no reason to see her anymore”! And she had meds for those that they said she would have to take the rest of her life.
So, we are currently believing that she is healed of down syndrome as well.
Although it is very hard on me mentally sometimes. Are there any scriptures you can direct me to, to meditate on or advice?
thank you! thank you again for your testimony Steve & Holly!
Will email you shortly.
