I know first-hand of three babies that were saved from abortion, this past year, after their mothers had the opportunity to hear me speak and know the truth about abortion. I can think of at least six different young adults, this past year, who were courageous enough to come forward to me and share that their hearts and
minds were changed on abortion after having met me and hearing me speak. And most astoundingly to me, I can’t even begin to tell you how many post-abortive men and women have found healing and peace after getting to know me and the love and forgiveness that I offer to anyone who has been touched by abortion.
“Every pregnancy is different,” people kept reminding me. “It must be a boy, who has the disposition of his father, all laid-back and calm, not fiery like his mother,” Ryan and I joked. Call it a mother’s intuition, but I knew there was something incredibly different about my second pregnancy than my first. Little did […]
This is a continuation from part one, Abortion Survivor Reflects on the Pain of Her Miscarriage. “Was this pregnancy planned?” the doctor asked Ryan and I, as we sat in her office the morning after our ultrasound, for what was to be our first scheduled prenatal appointment, but which had also turned out to be […]
The funny thing or maybe, more correctly, the not so funny thing about the journey in surviving, thriving and overcoming is that it isn’t a one-time event. It’s a process, and in reality, our lives are full of experiences and events that will challenge us, provide opportunities for emotional, mental, physical, relational and spiritual growth, and through God’s grace and our personal choices in those moments of adversity, we can overcome them and in doing so, become better people.
Even though I had been working on this book for some time, I didn’t truly understand this concept until November of 2011, when we lost our second child through a miscarriage at 11 weeks. Although I have survived, thrived in the face of, and ultimately overcome many adversities in my life, I had, what I realize now in hindsight, taken for granted that a new and often even more painful experience or event is just around the corner, no matter how many storms we have weathered in the past, no matter how deep our relationship with Christ or how strong our faith.
…As mothers, we instinctively concern ourselves with our children’s safety and well-being, whether they are playing in the yard or growing in our womb. I will stay on guard for both of my children all of my life, regardless of their location.
I believe, in my heart, Mr. President, that considering your own childhood, you understand how every human life matters and has value, regardless of how they were conceived. Despite the stance that you have taken time and time again that fails to acknowledge the importance of lives like mine, I wish you a blessed birthday. I will continue to pray that your heart and mind be transformed, and that someday soon ALL children, regardless of circumstance or situation, will be valued and given the same opportunity as you to celebrate their birthday.
