Prolife congresswoman shares sad news about her unborn child

Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) recently shared on Facebook that her unborn child has been diagnosed with Potter's Syndrome, a condition which prevents the child's kidneys from developing properly and is typically fatal to the child. 

“We don’t know what the future holds for our family, but we ask for your prayers and appreciate the privacy a family needs in such circumstances,” Herrera Beutler wrote. “According to the medical information and advice we’ve received, I will be able to continue to balance the responsibilities of an expectant mother with serving as your representative in Congress.”

On May 1, Herrera Beutler, 34, announced that she and her husband, Daniel Beutler, were expecting their first baby this fall. The couple married in August 2009 and lives in Camas.
Remember Representative Herrera Beutler, her child and her family in your prayers.
