Went to a close friend's sealing tonight at Salt Lake temple. She is 22 weeks pregnant and tomorrow they are going to induce her since her baby has Anencephaly, a neural tube defect that occurs in the first 28 days of pregnancy. The neural tube does not close and as a result the higher brain and top of the skull do not form. The baby won't be able to survive on it's own. After giving birth he ended up living 50 minutes. My heart goes out to her and her family. I can only imagine the pain.
