And The Baby's Name Is... is a book that every family and household should have. This book sheds light on the connection between the name given to a child and the destiny of that child. Unknown to many, along with every name comes a calling. The average name is called or pronounced hundreds of times a day. And because of the power of the tongue, that child is being prophesied to each time the name is called. As kids, we used to say that "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me." However, as we grow older, we realize that this saying is very far from the truth. So God's Word is true; The power of life and death is in the tongue. Therefore, the choice of names for our children may impact their journey in life more than we can imagine! In today's society, choosing a child's name has become as simple as taking polls from friends and associates, or merging portions of two names. In fact, some parents would just give a child a name simply because it sounds cute! Sadly, many children (and parents alike) do not even know the meaning of their names. And The Baby's Name Is.. enlightens one on how to carefully and diligently handle the task of selecting a child's name. A name is powerful. A good and godly name is even more powerful. May the Lord bless you and grant you godly counsel as you read. Samuel Jonathan
The medicalcommunity said that Simon was "incompatible with life" but the Crosier family refused to accept that diagnosis. "I Am Not a Syndrome - MyName is Simon" is the moving and gripping story of a baby diagnosed withTrisomy 18, a genetic disorder in which a person has a third copy of materialfrom chromosome 18. Produced byindependent book publisher All Star Press, "I Am Not a Syndrome - My Nameis Simon" details the struggle of Sheryl's son Simon from the early stagesof pregnancy to his life here on earth.
During thisdifficult time, Sheryl confronts a sometimes difficult andindifferent medical system to advocate on Simon's behalf. This is a trulyinspirational story with a strong pro-life message.
"I longed totell Simon s story of hope, faith, love and the peace which God grantedme," explained Sheryl. "I write this book to demonstrate thatour children are not a label and are not defects! They have a name andidentity. They are children of God."
Born on September7, 2010, in St. Louis, Missouri, Simon Dominic Crosier was diagnosed withTrisomy 18 and lived for three memorable months. Despite his disabilities, Simon had a huge impact on all who came into contact with him. The book isabout Simon s short and meaningful life, his family and his wonderfulcaregivers. "I Am Not a Syndrome - My Name is Simon" documents thefamily s battle to advocate for their precious son against an oftentimesindifferent and callous medical community.
"Strugglingwith the fragility of Simon s life was one thing. However, struggling with thepopular pragmatic culture that measures human life in terms of dollars ratherthan dignity, is quite another. Yet, all along the way, again and again, Sheryland Scott discovered and were made disciples of 'Life.' This story celebratesboth the pain and the joy of love!" stated Rev. Robert J. Hermann, BishopEmeritus in Residence, St. Louis Archdiocese of St. Louis.
The Crosierfamily had to overcome challenges put in their way by medical professionals andeven extended family members who never valued Simon s fragile existence the waythey did. Author Sheryl Crosier's hope is that this story will help motivatehealth-care professionals and anyone else that reads this account. The lives ofchildren, regardless of their diagnosis, possess inherent dignity and value, and they deserve the best care our advanced country has to offer.
