Life

Once upon a time, nearly eighteen years ago, there was a young woman who realized that she was going to have a baby.  This girl realized she was not able to care for this baby herself, and knew she was going to have to make a life-changing decision, both for herself, and for her child.

At the same time, states away, there was a young couple who did not have any children of their own.  This couple wanted a little one very badly, and prayed faithfully, every day, for God to bless them.

Then one day, through God's amazing plan, that couple was at a hospital where that young woman was bringing her child into the world.  Within minutes, that baby was in the arms of that couple, making them, at last, a father and a mother.


That couple was my parents.

And that baby, was me.

  


That young woman chose life, and every day I thank God that she did.


Choose life!
