Michelle Hui’s world was turned upside down when she miscarried on her way to work. But little did she know that she was actually expecting twins – and one of them went on to survive, even after she took abortion pills prescribed to avoid infection. The 31-year-old bank worker from County Kildare, Ireland, was six weeks pregnant when she started bleeding and went to hospital, fearing she was miscarrying her baby. She had to endure five separate tests by two different doctors before she was given the heart-breaking news that she had lost her baby.
Michelle was given abortion pills to prevent the risk of infection – but little did she know one of the babies was still alive. Michelle then had to have a medical abortion to prevent any infection and was given abortion pills to expel the foetus from her body. But devastatingly, further tests revealed the mum had blood clots in her womb, which had to be removed. But this bad news turned to joy when doctors spotted a tiny heartbeat. They were astonished to discover that Michelle had been pregnant with twins – and one of the babies had survived the miscarriage AND abortion pills.
“The miscarriage and abortion were absolutely horrific. The ten days between the miscarriage and going back to the hospital were just a blur,” she said. “But then I saw this little heartbeat. I thought it couldn’t be right. After all we had been through, I didn’t want to get my hopes up. “The doctor went out and came back in with a more senior doctor and he did the scan again and he said, ‘You are not going to believe it, we’ve got a heartbeat’. It was the best feeling ever.”
The scan that relieved one of her babies had survived a miscarriage and abortion pills in the womb. She continued with the pregnancy as normal and in February, Michelle and her husband Ross, 33, welcomed little Megan into their lives. The miracle baby weighed six pounds and has been thriving at home with her four-year-old sister Mya and brother Noah, two.
The case is so rare that it’s been written up in medical journals, while campaigners say there is no medical reason behind it and the family had a case of good luck.
It doesn’t matter how you came to this world; that someone celebrated your arrival on earth or not is not important. Whether you know your biological parents or not shouldn’t really matter because God is your ultimate creator and father. He meticulously planned your living here on earth long before your conception. In Jeremiah 1:5, the scripture says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…”.
You are here not because someone prayed or wished you were here. You were created for a purpose. And that God’s purpose for your life will be perfected no matter what. Nothing in heaven, nothing on earth or in hell; nothing in the past, present or in the future is strong enough to abort or alter it.
Upon serving God’s purpose on earth, you ‘ll be recalled home to your Heavenly Father.
In short, God’s will is too superior to be overruled. Nothing can happen in our lives against His will. We all live and die, win or lose according to His script. To me, this assurance is enough to settle my mind. I hope it does for you as well.
