A miscarriage refers to the loss of a baby before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It mostly occurs due to reasons which are out of control. Loss of a child due to miscarriage cannot be prevented and is very disheartening. Felicia Cash and her husband did not have any child for over 13 years. Being herself a mother of miscarried child was the reason why the couple decided to adopt children. The couple adopted three young girls but surprisingly the day Felish and her husband signed the adoption papers, Felish realized that she was pregnant and was expecting a child. And after eight months, Felish gave birth to her oldest son.
As a high school girl, Felicia always had a crucifixion for the belief that pregnant women shouldn’t be allowed to have an abortion. Felicia took parts in several debate competitions on the topic of abortion. And as she grew up, she took this agony to social media platforms. She shared many pro-life posts on her Facebook account. However, never in her life did Felicia imagine that these issues would hit her in such a peculiar way.
When Felicia was about to give birth to a child the third time, she was blessed with twins. However, she faced many pregnancy troubles. And in just six weeks the couple found that one of their children had died.
Felicia Cash said, “We had not seen a doctor at that point yet; they don’t usually want to see you until you are eight or nine weeks. So I went into the hospital, bleeding, in fear of miscarriage. They did an ultrasound and told us that we had lost one of two, but that the second baby looked healthy and strong. We had other scares when the bleeding started again and again but was told it was just due to the first loss and a hematoma beneath the placenta. Monday morning, I had more bleeding and then pain. It happened very suddenly. I told my husband he needed to come home from work but before he could get here, my water broke and within 10 minutes I had delivered my tiny son into my own hands. Japeth Peace Cash was born the morning of July 24th at 8:30, at home.”
On 31st July, Felicia shared pictures of her miscarried child, only 14 weeks and 6 days old as she wanted to exhibit life at this stage of development and to probably save the life of another. She named her miscarried child Alian Peace.
In another post shared by her on Facebook, Felicia wrote, “Our beautiful Japeth Peace, miscarried July 24th at 14 weeks 6 days. He is perfectly and wonderfully formed, right down to his amazing tiny toes and fingers. Even his fingernails are formed and visible. Tiny veins that carried his own blood to his precious body can be seen through his delicate skin, even his wonderfully formed muscles are visible. At less than half gestation he is very obviously human, not a cluster of cells, not a lump of tissue, not a blob of unformed flesh. He is a beautiful child, formed by God, and now gone to be with Him. I am posting this in hopes of offering information to those who may not know how completely a child of only 14 weeks gestation is formed. And therefore not something to be taken lightly.”
The pictures of the miscarried child surfaced the internet. Many other women who suffered miscarriages just like Felicia commented on her post and posted their own excruciating pictures. Felicia felt sorry for all those women and said them to have faith in God. Felicia wants all the women who are considering abortion to take the help of others. According to her, there are many other options and people out there who ready to help them. She said, “As miserable as this event has been, and as heartrending and tearful, I still thank God that I have been able to share Japeth’s precious life.”
