The deceased son’s parents adopted a boy two months later from the same hospital where he died.

Katie and Josh Butler have always dreamed of having children, even going so far as to imagine 13 of them running around – but their dream quickly turned into a nightmare.

It makes sense that the couple are so eager to have children due to Katie’s broad family background and Josh’s family-centered values.

His focus on this aspect of life is what drew Katie to him in the first place when they met in college, both studying journalism. The duo eventually teamed up in 2012.

In 2015, Katie gave birth to baby Dewey, but tragically the boy was not as healthy as they expected. Like Josh speak:

“I’ve heard people say that if you want to hear God laugh, you have to tell him your plan.”

The newborn baby was found to have a chromosomal disorder, and despite all efforts, Dewey passed away at the age of two months.

The infant’s parents are apart from being ravaged but chose not to give up. This time, the couple decided to try and adopt a baby. They were worried about conceiving again because Dewey’s condition was genetic. Katie speak:

“We’ve had a lot of love and affection for Dewey, and now he’s in heaven… I need more kids to love.”

Not long after speaking with the nurses, they received a phone call, informing them that there was a baby at the hospital where Dewey had been briefly staying. The mother of a child cannot take care of him and he needs a loving home.

They brought in Braxtel when he was 11 months old. Like Dewey, he also had medical challenges. In 2016, they legally adopted the boy. New mom expressed:

“I really think one way to describe our short journey so far is to take what’s sad and take advantage of it and live with hope and the option to see joy.”

These parents wanted to adopt again. With their positive and resilient attitude, they are sure to become great role models for their children.

Since Katie and Josh Butler are highly cognitive, despite having nothing but unconditional love available, having children with medical conditions is a huge challenge.

Fly reality of abortion into the mix, and it becomes even more complex and emotional. This issue came to light when a mother of a daughter with Down Syndrome wrote letter to a previous doctor.

According to her, this medical professional has repeatedly advised her to have an abortion while pregnant with her child. Courtney Williams Baker chose to keep a baby named Emersyn Faith.

She talks about a friend of hers who is pregnant with a child with Down syndrome, saying her doctor finds beauty in it rather than constantly encouraging termination.

Although she wasn’t angry, the mother wrote, it made her sad when her doctor failed to see or recognize a magical creature growing inside her.

Whatever your opinion on either of these women’s choices for their children, one thing is obvious – their love is as unconditional as any parent’s. for her beautiful children. The deceased son’s parents adopted a boy two months later from the same hospital where he died.
