03 Feb 2014 Baby ‘Iver’
There are a couple things really heart-warming about this story.
First of all, the dedication and love of Dylan Benson towards his brain dead wife Robyn and their pre-born son Iver is heart warming in the face of a family tragedy.
Secondly, the other profound conclusion one has to come away with after reading about baby ‘Iver’ is there are alternatives to terminating a pregnancy. Sometimes life presents hard choices. While it may be that an easier solution seems the best way forward, clearly we are called to do what is right.
Dylan Benson is not only loving his wife, but also the new and completely distinct life developing in the womb of his brain dead wife.
This is sacrificial love at work and Benson is to be commended for it.
