Heart problem at birth healed

God had blessed our family with a wonderful daughter, but despite our efforts to have another child, after five years we had not been successful. We consulted a doctor specializing in this area and were devastated when he informed us that we would not be able to have more children. Still, we were grateful and happy to have our daughter. 

Four months after that meeting, we were overjoyed to find that my wife was pregnant and that we were to be blessed with another child. To me, this was evidence, despite the negative medical prognosis, that God is the only cause and creator, the only real Father and Mother of us all. Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “God is the parent Mind, and man is God’s spiritual offspring” (p. 336).

Within hours after our son, Scott, was born, however, a doctor informed me that the child might have significant heart problems that would require multiple operations to correct. This was not the news I was expecting. Fear quickly set in, and I slept very little that night.
