Brittney Walls was like any other mother-to-be, she was excited and hopeful about her unborn baby’s future.
But moments into her 18th week prenatal visit, doctor’s notified her that there was a problem with her unborn little girl. They explained that her baby suffered from anencephaly, a rare condition that reportedly only impacts around 1,000 pregnancies a year.
As a result, doctors asked if she wanted to terminate the unborn child or carry the little girl to term. Explaining that if she did carry it to full-term. It would be considered a fatal pregnancy, because the child will most likely be dead at birth.
After hearing her medical team, Walls decided that she wanted to continue with the pregnancy and have her daughter’s organs donated, so other babies in need could get a part of her daughter.
Walls told KSLA that “She will be with me the whole time until it’s time for them to get her” and even though the mother-to-be is bracing herself for her daughter’s short life, she’s even picked out the name Anastacia Faith. Anastacia means “reborn through Christ.”
