hmm... i would be shocked and i'd cry until my eyes get swollen. i'd get down on my knees and pray.

i know i should pray first but i know also that i'd cry and cry and mumble prayers at the same time.

that was a tough question.

I would weep and cry and go into fasting and prayer

Hi sis Pia,
That was really a tough question for you since you still don't have a child but I admire you more for answering a situational question. But I agree with you. I have three sons and I must admit that it will devastate me if this thing will happen to any of them. Praise the Lord that He has shielded us from this kind of problem. Thanks for your visit and honest answer. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year sis. May the Lord shower you with all the blessings in His great storehouse of blessings.

Hi Amrita,
I admire you too for answering a situational question. Yes, that would probably be the only thing a Christian can do and probably lay the problem at God's feet for His benign resolution. Thanks for your visit and honest answer my friend. Merry Christmas and Happy New to you too. May the Lord shower you too with countless blessings from His great storehouse of blessings. God bless India and the Indians too.

Hi Aisha,
Yes, probably that's the best thing to do. Thanks for your visit and comments. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones. God bless you always.

Hi Bluedreamer27,
You have still a long way to go before you can have this kind of problem (knock on wood, that this will not happen to your future son), but thanks for sharing your thoughts with us on this matter. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you and your loved ones. God bless you always.
