Imagine a doctor telling you your unborn baby girl doesn’t have a brain 19 weeks into a pregnancy. Then try to imagine carrying her – or your wife carrying her – to term anyway.
That’s what Keri Young decided to do, just 30 seconds after “the worst moment of her life.” And her husband, Royce Young, wrote a love letter to her on Facebook on Feb. 17 to tell the world about her and her decision.
Keri Young is seven months pregnant with the their second child, who they decided to name Eva. The Oklahoma couple also has a 2-year-old son named Harrison and Royce Young writes about basketball for ESPN, according to the Huffington Post. When he was covering the NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans he met Jarrius, an “awesome kid” who needs a liver transplant. Jarrius, who wore a shirt that said “It Takes Lives To Save Lives,” inspired Royce Young to share a love letter he wrote for his wife, instead of keeping it private as he normally does.
