A touching Letter of Hope to an Unborn Child from a Survivor-mum of the Brussels terror attack

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

With respect to the bomb-blast at the Brussels Zaventem international airport last week, a mom who was present at the time of the chaos wrote a heart-touching letter to her unborn 16-weeks-old baby in utero, telling the baby  how the attack left her and the baby’s dad devastated.

The Author of the letter, Sneha Mehta and her husband Sameep Mehta (the Parents of the unborn baby) arrived the Airport together before the bombs went-off and roofs where collapsing and the grounds shocks. They both struggled and rushed out of the airport and rushed to the hospital to check-out on the safety state of their baby. Despite the traumatic chaos of the day, the ultrasound exam showed the Mehtas’ baby peacefully sucking its thumb – almost unaware of the terror happening outside the womb. On getting home to Antwerp, Sneha decided to write a letter to her unborn baby as a reminder of all that had happened. According to CNN reports, the parents have decided to seal the letter and give it to the child at the age of 16 or later.

According to CNN, the letter reads:

"Hi Sweetheart,
I don't know if we already acknowledged this with you in person, but when you were 16 weeks old, mum and dad were in an explosion at Brussels Airport.
And no matter where humanity is today, I just want to tell you that life is a wonderful thing, and the world is really full of remarkable people.
You didn't just give mum and dad faith and reason to live, you gave the awareness and presence of mind like never before.
 I felt more alive than I ever have, and I knew I had to protect you, so I was calm, composed and fully aware that we will survive.
When we reached Sint-Augustinus emergency, and we saw you oblivious and sucking at your thumb at the ultrasound, and doing your general acrobatics, all the mistrust, hate and angst for the terrorist attack vaporized.
I do hope with all my heart that you are born into a better world, and if not, then you do absolute best to make it that.
You are absolutely precious to us, and have already been a hero today.
I guess the world has sent so much love and hope your way, you owe your life to reciprocating that goodness.
 May you always be brave and healthy.
We love you beyond words, Mum and Dad."

    What would have happened if the unborn child had died? The RCC maintains that salvation is impossible without baptism. It permits you to “hope” that God would save this innocent soul, but the doctrine says there are a short range of options… a) it goes to Hell with original sin on its soul, b) it goes to Limbo, the highest level of Hell, or c) you can “hope” that God isn’t a monster who will send it to (a) or (b). What good, civilized, rational person could worship an all-powerful being that would do that?
