    HENSARLING of texas in the house of representatives Wednesday, February 27, 2013 Mr. HENSARLING. Mr. Speaker, today, I honor a mother and her child.

    A member of my staff recently gave birth to her daughter, who had a fatal birth defect and could not survive outside of the womb.

    This absolutely devastating condition unfortunately happens to many children each year. We rarely hear of these cases, though, because such pregnancies are often terminated.

    But there are also many mothers who choose to carry their sons and daughters to term--providing nourishment and the most loving home possible here on earth.

    This child had a name--Kari Grace. And she had a mom, Kirsten, and dad, David.

    That is why I am sharing this story today--so that other women might hear it, and might feel that they are not alone, and know that caring for their child is an act of pure, unselfish love worthy of recognition.

    Most of us will never meet these children. But they exist, and we will forever be touched by the grace of knowing that a life was created and a mother was made.

    Thank you, Kirsten, for displaying such strength and love to a world that doesn't always recognize it. And to Kari Grace--please know you created a great mom, and that you will always be loved and remembered.
