And you have something about which to complain?! A family's plight: baby Heitor Cordeiro

Much too commonly, it seems, we use the phrase "It took my breath away!"  Here something, that when first viewed by me, really did take my breath away, which 15 hours later, I am still attempting to regain, with tears in my eyes and a most oppressed heart.  Nevertheless, it is a story in real life that is so very inspirational.

When a child it born, one worries about counting his/her fingers and toes.  The parents of this precious being had so much more about which to worry!  Yet, one is hard-pressed to see this most valiant very young mother of only 22 years of age, ever give in to sorrow, rather, being a tower of strength in adversity, is always seen with that most beautiful smile she wears so well!

This child will need a lifetime of care, in need of many special resources, I pray, be available to him.  Such great strides have been made in the field of prosthetics.  Who knows, the day may come, when this happy child be able to embrace his marvelous mother, who will so long for one such embrace!  So much we take for granted, if only to have the arms of our children around our necks!

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 
Philippians 4:13 (King James Bible)


 It is easy enough to be pleasant,
    When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is one who will smile,
    When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
    And it always comes with the years,
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth,
    Is the smile that shines through tears. 

It is easy enough to be prudent,
    When nothing tempts you to stray,
When without or within no voice of sin
    Is luring your soul away;
But it's only a negative virtue
    Until it is tried by fire,
And the life that is worth the honor on earth,
    Is the one that resists desire. 

By the cynic, the sad, the fallen,
    Who had no strength for the strife,
The world's highway is cumbered to-day,
    They make up the sum of life.
But the virtue that conquers passion,
    And the sorrow that hides in a smile,
It is these that are worth the homage on earth
    For we find them but once in a while.

                                          Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The mother of this beautiful child, Talita, well exemplifies this poem!
January 2, 2014 - 7:00pmEST - I just came to realize she was aware of his disability through a sonogram I just viewed on her page, yet, chose to have him! Praise God, for it!
I shall always have this beautiful family in my prayers!

She says in this page (translation follows):
"O Heitor é um anjo que Deus me enviou, para nossos olhos com algumas limitações.. Mas para os olhos de Deus, nada é impossível.. O amor que ele recebe de todos, é grande.. Meu anjo, tem s2 o que é o mais importante ele irá AMAR.. coisa que infelizmente nem todos conseguem!
Muito esperto, um menino que logo logo estará me dando muito "trabalho" com as gatinhas!!
"Ele veio para nós sem seus dois bracinhos, mas cremos em DEUS que tudo nessa vida se superá, basta a gente persistir, isso eu mamãe do Heitor sou e bastante! Persiste, e se depender de mim e do papai do meu Guerreiro ele irá surpreender tudo e todos!"

Um beijão a todos que curtem nosso ANJO HEITOR!

"Heitor is an angel that God sent us, in our eyes with some limitations... Nevertheless in God's eyes nothing is impossible... The love he receives from all is great... My angel has s2 but what is more important is that he will be able to love, something, unfortunately, not all are able to do!
Very bright, a little boy who soon will be giving me a lot of "work" with the girls!!

"He came to us without his two little arms, but we believe with God, that everything in this life can be overcome, if only we persist, and in this I, Heitor's mother, am very persistent!  Persistence, and if dependent of me and the daddy of my Warrior, he will overcome everything and everyone!

"A big kiss to all who love our ANGEL HEITOR!"

  1. Sister Helga, what a touching story this is!
    May God bless these young couple.
    This is a lesson for those pro-abortion supporters.

    1. Indeed, dear Jithin!
      We need always count our blessings!

      In every thing give thanks:
      for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
