About the Book

When Jessica and Derek LaHousse received a devastating, life-limiting diagnosis for their unborn baby, they embarked on a journey of choosing life. Instead of following the medical advice to consider terminating the pregnancy, Jessica and Derek saw their daughter’s life as a gift from God; a precious and innocent baby who deserved to be surrounded by love and given a chance. They opted to continue on despite the grim prognosis, and placed their trust in God’s sovereign hands. The remaining months of pregnancy were a whirlwind of appointments to monitor progress and planning for many possible outcomes. In an urgent attempt to save her from stillbirth, Tabitha Miriam LaHousse was delivered nearly two months early, on February 17, 2020. She was alive and already defying all the statistics for her condition. Over the next several months, Tabitha overcame many obstacles in the neonatal intensive care unit and ushered in a beautiful view of God’s heart and character in the process. This is a story, orchestrated by God, of a medically fragile baby girl and the family behind her that refused to give up. It is an account of all the miraculous and remarkable things that happened along the way that point to a good, loving, and merciful God who is faithful and worthy of our trust.

About the Author

After earning degrees in music education and performance, Jessica married her high school sweetheart Derek. Together they moved from their childhood homes in Michigan to the fast-paced Washington, D.C. region to build their careers. Despite being told they were unlikely to have children, the couple joyfully welcomed their first child three years later. Jessica embraced her new role as mother, leaving the workforce behind to care for her son at home instead. She is now mom to three children: two energetic little boys, Benjamin and Solomon, and one special little girl, Tabitha. Jessica’s primary responsibilities are homeschooling the boys, managing Tabitha’s medical condition, and caring for the household. Each day is filled with the beautiful challenge of motherhood; from cooking meals and doing laundry, to therapy sessions, doctors’ appointments, and homeschool activities. Life has not been without its trials, but those have all served to build Jessica’s faith and trust in a good and sovereign God.
