Mother-to-be has Jesus in her belly

Filed under: Your Pregnancy

My mother-in-law was convinced that Jared waved at her. In the ultrasound. There was something that could have been an arm and it might have moved... but she was certain he waved at her. People see what they want to see, it seems. That was, I think, the case recently with some chocolate drippings and seems to be the case once again with an ultrasound in Warwickshire.

Laura Turner had been through seven months of a difficult pregnancy, including facing the possibility of downs syndrome and was understandably anxious to see the latest ultrasound picture of her son. "My partner and I had already been for four or five scans because my baby has a cleft lip, and it was another routine check-up to make sure that everything was okay," Laura explained. She added "We had already found out that we were expecting a boy at an earlier scan so when we went to the hospital we weren't anticipating any more surprises. How wrong we were."

It wasn't until they got home that they noticed what looked like a face hovering above the baby. Immediately, they identified the face as being that of Jesus wearing a shroud. Personally, I think it looks more like Mick Jagger, but then, I've never actually seen a photo of Jesus. Miss Turner went on "It's kind of spooky but also beautiful and we will always treasure it. It's as if someone is watching over Joshua. It's helped make us feel more at ease and although I'm not very religious, seeing the picture does reassure me that things are going to turn out okay and that Joshua will be our little miracle."

I guess I'm kinda jealous. The most miraculous thing about my kids is that they haven't killed themselves yet (and believe me, it's not for a lack of trying!) When I was little, I used to watch the shadows dancing on the wall at night and was convinced they were ghosts. Later, I learned they were caused by the headlights of cars driving by. I used to hear noises when I was home alone and think our house was haunted. I've since learned that it was nothing more than the incredibly expensive wear and tear of an old house. I am more inclined to think this is a bit of last night's steak-and-kidney pie rather than the son of God. What do you think? Could this be a miracle? Have you experienced any miracles with your kids?
