You are not alone in carrying your child with Potter's Syndrome or other kidney defects to term. This is what Michael’s mom has to say to parents who have been given the adverse prenatal diagnosis of Potter’s Syndrome or other kidney defects:

“Even though Michael didn't live very long, we are at peace in our hearts with the decision we made about allowing Michael to live according to God's will and not by our own accord. Our lives have truly been blessed through the years and our faith strengthened, as a result of this little saint who was given to us for such a short time. We came to realize that none of our children are really ours. They are given to us from above to love and care for and eventually they will all return to the Father. We are so thankful that we chose life for Michael.”
