Mom gives birth to dead daughter – as she holds baby girl in her arms, husband whispers words she’ll never forget

Experiencing a parent’s worst nightmare, Whitney Quinton and her husband, Brett, had to bid farewell to their daughter before she could experience life. Whitney, who battled various illnesses, including endometriosis and adenomyosis, suffered a miscarriage before dreaming of giving her son a sibling. After three years and endometriosis surgery, she became pregnant again.

However, the joy of expecting a girl turned to tragedy during an ultrasound. The radiologist delivered heartbreaking news – their daughter had severe abnormalities, with her heart in the wrong place, missing a kidney, and issues with her limbs. Given the option to terminate the pregnancy, the couple faced an agonizing decision.

After intense prayer, they decided to spare their daughter further suffering. Whitney underwent labor induction, delivering Ruby-Jo, who lived briefly at just one pound. Whitney grappled with guilt and sadness, but Brett’s comforting words, acknowledging their decision as an act of love, brought solace. In retrospect, they learned Ruby-Jo’s heart defect meant she wouldn’t have survived long outside the womb.

Whitney’s grief endures, but she believes Ruby-Jo is with their family in heaven, free from suffering. In this heartbreaking journey, Whitney gained compassion, strength, and a deepened connection to faith, acknowledging that Ruby-Jo’s impact extends beyond her brief time on Earth.
