Viral: Mom’s World Destroyed When She Sees It on 20-Week Ultrasound, Then Church Starts Praying

There is no place for miracle in science. In the eyes of the scientists, everything happens for an explainable reason. But for faithful God believers, miracles do exist. And they happen every day.

Hope Stand Baptist Church in Jackson, Tennessee, is under the headship of Vicar Billy Smith. As a regular Sunday worship service, the vicar began with these words from Romans 8:26, “For we do not know how to pray as we should but the Spirit himself intercedes for us.”

This was correctly the words Jeremy and Chantena Cook needed to hear. Those were words from God.

The Cooks live in a same street with the church and after receiving some very serious news, they knew this church is the place where they needed to be. As if they knew of somewhere else to go.
Chantena, the mother of two young daughters, was pregnant their third child. A boy.

Their newborn baby was to be named “Reign.” The pregnancy was going too well, just like the couple expected. Their two daughters were both fine. Why shouldn’t this one be?
At 20-week of gestation, Chantena went in for an ultrasound and something wasn’t right.
Dandy-Walker Syndrome is a rare congenital disease, which is neurological and affects movement.

Their newborn baby would never walk or talk. Regin might not be able to completely normal like other kids or could’t do any of the many functions of a healthy child.
When she heard the news, Chantena was shattered. She could not believe what she just heard. It was the most terrible day in her entire life.

She knew then that only a miracle could save her new baby. The church they had come began to pray for the family, asking God for divine intervention.
Chantena and her husband set up a page on Facebook called ‘Reign’s Journey.’ Before they knew it they had received thousands of compassionate prayer from others.

Nothing had changed since the 20-week ultrasounds, not a sign of improvement. The couple was prepared for the worst, resigning to God’s will that their son would face hardship in his life.
Two weeks following Reign’s birth, an ultrasound of his brain was performed. There is absolutely no trace left of Dandy-Walker in the neurosurgeon.

Dr. Roussis, who delivered Reign, said sometimes in late pregnancy a malfunction may repair itself. It is uncommon, but Roussis said that it does happen occasionally. But, he also followed up by saying it might as well was a miracle from God. “Maybe God gave a little more blessing to it,” he said.

Chantena repeated her own declaration. “For the rest of my life, when I hear the word miracle, he’s going to come to mind, he’s the definition.”
“I believe miracles happen every day. To actually have one laid in your lap, it’s very overwhelming in a good way, and it’s kind of surreal,” said Jeremy.
What about you? Do you belive in miracle ?

A woman in Seffner was arrested on Monday for aggravated child abuse and neglect after her 19-month-old baby was brought to the hospital with several broken bones.

BREAKING NEWS: Mom Arrested After Toddler Brought To Hospital With Broken Back, Ribs, Arm, Leg, Internal Bleeding

Medical workers determined that the injuries came from physical abuse that has been continued for at least two months, based on different stages of recovery and acute injuries.

On Monday around 11 p.m., Veronica Rivera-Cruz, 21, brought her 19-month-old child to Brandon Regional Hospital for a swelling on the child’s left leg. When hospital staff, along with medical personnel from the Child Protection Team, assessed the child’s injuries, they found the following injuries:

  • Multiple bruises across the forehead which they believed were several days old
  • A black eye with observable hemorrhaging to the white of her eye
  • Bruising on the right cheek, blister inside the mouth
  • A fracture on the right elbow, another on both right forearm bones which appeared to have been recovering for 2-4 weeks
  • An severe displaced spiral fracture on the left femur bone
  • Fractures along the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th ribs which appeared to have been recovering for 2-4 weeks
  • A posterior fracture of the right side of the 9th or 10th rib
  • A fracture to the left tibia which appeared to have been recovering for 6-8 weeks
  • Fractured deformities on the spine humorous bone which appeared to have been recovering for 2-4 weeks
  • A fracture on the victim’s periorbital bone
  • A racture to the left humorous bone which appeared to have been recovering for 6-8 weeks
  • A fracture to the victim’s right ulna bone
  • Internal bleeding

In total, medical staff located wounds at four different stages of recovery on the victim’s body, leading them to suspect that abuse had been occurring consistently for at least two months.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, during a non-custodial interview, Rivera-Cruz admitted that she might be “a litle too rough” while changing the victim’s diaper on Monday night, which she believed may have caused the femur fracture. This occurred at their home in Seffner. In addition, the mother told the officers she believed she might be the one causing the rib fractures of the victim as well.

Rivera Cruz’s roommate witnessed on several occasions that the child appeared to be in pain or have visible injuries and had told the defendant numerous time to take the child for medical services. “However, the defendant failed to provide any medical attention for the victim that any prudent person would consider essential to the child’s well-being,” the affidavit reads.
According to deputies, as a result of the Rivera-Cruz’s neglection, the little girl had to endure daily live with numerous fractures all over her body. The victim’s old fractures in her left arm had already started to recover, which caused the child to have a deformed left arm, medical professionals pointed out.
In addition, doctors located within the victim’s abdomen several bleeding, which might have been caused by lacerated liver or intestine. The health worker emphasized that should the injuries continued to go untreated, it could have resulted in the victim’s death.

Rivera-Cruz was charged with 4-counts of Felony Aggravated Child Abuse as well as Felony Child Neglect with Great Bodily Harm. She is currently is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail without bond.
