This may be a very personal question and you don't have to answer if you don't want to, but I was wondering if your heart child tested your beliefs/faith?

Not sure what you mean by that. I've always believed that God does things for a reason. There is nothing I can do or could have done to prevent it. It will just be something she had to deal with for the rest of her life. I did beat myself up, and I still have moments where I do beat myself up - but when I go to bed at night I just can't worry about it because there is not anything more I can do. If that makes any sense at all!

It does, and I think I was trying to ask if you got mad/resentful/bitter whatever with God over your heart baby.

I know I got somewhat mad at God. Dd was diagnosed while in the NICU and then especially 4 months later when we found out about her visual impairment, brain structure abnormalities, and her endocrine problems. I tend not to be mad/resentful/bitter anymore, but I know when I do, its usually when I see babies of mothers who can barely take care of them and the kids are so bad off, and then I remember, that God wouldn't give us anything we can't handle and that if my poor dd was given to these parents, i can't even imagine how she would turn out.

Yes. Don't really want to go into further than that.

I questioned why & I still do sometimes.
