(Minghui.org) When Hong learned she was carrying twins, she was very happy and excited. After a follow-up checkup, however, she couldn’t help crying all the time.

The doctor told Hong and her husband that they could see in the ultrasound images that one of the fetuses had underdeveloped limbs and that it was a congenital disability. The doctor suggested an abortion.

Hong was devastated and couldn’t believe it. So the couple went to almost all the women and children’s hospitals in the city, but all the doctors said the same thing.

To rule out a misdiagnosis, they decided to go to a provincial hospital to consult with a specialist. After seeing Hong in the hospital for two weeks and three consultations, the specialist reached the same conclusion: Even though the doctor couldn’t see the full body of one fetus, he could tell that the limbs were underdeveloped, and abortion might be a better option than giving birth to a congenitally disabled child.

Grandmother’s Dream

The husband called his mother, Jia, to tell her that they had decided to have the abortion and needed her help to take care of Hong.

Jia is a practitioner of Falun Dafa, an ancient spiritual discipline centered on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. She told her son, “You two come home now. The twins are healthy—one is a boy and the other is a girl.” Her son asked, “How do you know?” Jia then told him about the dream she’d had the night before.

In the dream, Jia was on the side of a road. She saw three little children climbing over the fence to the middle of the road just as a bus was speeding toward them. Three lives were in danger! Jia waved at the bus desperately to signal it to stop. She was so scared that she woke up sweating.

Jia couldn’t stop thinking about her dream. She felt that it was not a regular dream. The one boy and two girls in her dream were healthy, perhaps implying that the twins Hong was carrying were a boy and a girl. And the three lives in danger probably meant the procedure would put the lives of the twins and the mother in danger.

The young couple preferred to believe her and returned home. But Hong had a difficult pregnancy, with high blood pressure, swollen legs, dizziness, and muddle-headedness. 

Jia told her that she might get better if she recited the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” but Hong didn’t believe her. 

Jia said, “That’s fine, I will recite them for you.” Sometimes Jia talked to the twins, saying, “Welcome you to the world. Remember ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” Hong always listened quietly.

There was no change when Hong went for her monthly checkups: The doctor could only see the body of one fetus and the limbs of the other. Two months before her estimated delivery date, Hong was hospitalized and Jia went with her.

One night Jia heard in her dream, “Go home and get the babies’ blankets!” By the time she returned to the hospital with the blankets the next day, Hong had given birth to a pair of healthy twins. The whole family couldn’t have been happier.

Growing Up in the Light of Dafa

Jia, 74, used to have many ailments, but she regained her health after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. By following “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” she keeps improving her character. She believes that she and her whole family benefit from Falun Dafa. 

The twins stayed with her since they were seven months old. Every day they watched Grandma do the Falun Dafa exercises and listened to her read the Falun Dafa books. They are always happy and hardly ever cry. The only thing that bothered the parents was the girl’s belly button, which protruded. The doctor said that it could be fixed surgically when the girl was at least seven years old.

But Grandma never saw it as a problem. When they learned to speak, she taught them to say “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” When the girl was two years old, her belly button resolved itself. As the twins grew up, they learned more about Falun Dafa and memorized many poems in Hong Yin.

Now they are in elementary school and doing great.
