“It’s now known that cells from a developing fetus cross the placenta, allowing the baby’s DNA to become part of the mother’s body. These fetal cells persist in a woman’s body into her old age…This is true even if the baby she carried didn’t live to be born. The cells of that child stay with her, resonating in ways that mothers have known intuitively throughout time.” – excerpt from lauragraceweldon.com (it’s worth the really quick read and explains it in “normal people” terms)
My dear friend Janeese sent me an article explaining that mothers carry their children’s DNA forever. Isn’t that neat? It gets better – Amelia and I both have Jack’s DNA, and the rest of our children will have (both Jack and) Amelia’s DNA.
It’s really comforting to know that physically, not just spiritually, a part of Amelia will be with me forever. And a part of her will be with the rest of our children. The way God has scientifically created our bodies just blows me away!
