My name is Mashiea Devine and I live in Hartselle, al. I know this may seem strange, so please don't judge me, but on 10/24/2000 I had a son Kalynn who was diagnosed with gastroschesis early on in my pregnancy. I was traveling to Birmingham hospital at least 2 times per month to be seen by doctor's to monitor my pregnancy. At the time what I didn't know was there was another mother there at the same time dealing with the same issues with her pregnancy as I was. To make a long sad story short. Our babies were due the same day in November, both boys, both boys born a month early on the same day 10/24/2000, and unfortunately I did not make it to Birmingham to deliver my son as planned. my son died approximately 2-4 days in my womb prior to his birth. While I was delivering my son through C- Section at Decatur General the brave mother of the other baby was delivering her son in Birmingham who was born completely healthy. A miracle some may say. I discovered this while watching a news report show after the passing of my son, and saw the mother on a news show sometime in January- march of 2001. The report gave me some peace. In my heart I know that GOD had to sacrifice my son so the other mother's son could live and I accept that, because in my heart I know that child had a plan to fulfill for our father and savior. I left Alabama after the death of my son to not return until 2012 and I am somewhat struggling being back home after my loss. My husband suggested I try to find this child and mother to see how he is doing. he should be 13 years old now. I just want to know how well he is doing. I feel this child has my son's soul. I would love to meet him and mom just to tell them how blessed and wonderful he is. In some strange way sometimes I think it would give me some closure. if anyone knows this family or has any idea how I can go about finding the mother and child please respond. No weirdo stuff just a mother still morning the loss of her child for 13 years and still counting.
