Standing with the March For Life

Standing with the March For Life

Today we will see a March for Life instead of a “Women’s March” that was more like a March for Death of the unborn and everything that is good and godly. There have been over 60 million unborn babies murdered in their mother’s womb since Rove v. Wade was instituted. I am thankful that we finally have a president who cares about the life of the unborn and is willing to speak out for life. And as Ted Cruz wrote, “This week, there will be another march on Washington. This one is to celebrate life, and all are welcome, including the unborn and those who love them.” (Praise the Lord for godly Senators like him in the leadership positions of our country who stand up for life as well!)

“On his very first day of work in the White House, Trump signed an executive order reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ which banned government funding of foreign pro-abortion groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation. 

The following day, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted in large majority to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion on U.S. soil. That same day Trump’s press secretary promised a ‘heavy Administration presence’ at the March for Life. Today, news broke that Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the March, the first time a vice president will do so in the event’s 44 year history.” (source)

This is great news after eight years of having a president who believed that even babies who were born alive from botched abortions should die: President Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act four times, horrifyingly voting against protecting babies who survived abortion and voting in favor of leaving them to die. A vote against this legislation was a vote for infanticide. [Source]”

“Planned Parenthood’s funding jumped from 33% to nearly 50% – over $487 million in taxpayer funding now goes to the abortion giant (under Obama and his administration). This is almost half a billion dollars that American families are forced to pay in tax dollars to the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. [Source]”

How anyone can believe that abortion is okay when they know that it isn’t a blob of tissue growing in the mother’s womb with the advent of the sonogram but a human being is beyond comprehension. What about the argument that if we make abortions a criminal act that women would go to back alley abortions and possibly die from them. Kymberlie from my Facebook page answered this perfectly:

“Every one needs help but not with murdering their babies. By that logic because I don’t like someone I should have the right to murder any one and the government should pay for a hit man to do so because I need help. I can’t pay for it my self and then it’s just between God and me. No, that’s not how the real world works. If you want abortion, pay for it your self because it’s murder plain and simple. If it wasn’t for my dad picking my mom up and then never letting her leave his side I wouldn’t be here. My mom was minutes from having an abortion with me. These babies have no voices and someone needs to be their voice.”

Amen.

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.

Psalm 139:13

  1. I agree that unborn children need protecting. However, I find it tragic that once these children are born, Christians stop caring about them–child poverty is the highest it’s ever been and more children go hungry than ever.

    What about the children that are already here, that are already born? Why don’t you advocate against child poverty as much as you do for against abortion?

    1. Marcie, why do you think I spend hours every day fighting for marriage through the pen? Single motherhood is what causes poverty. Having babies out of wedlock causes poverty. Mothers who divorce their husbands causes poverty. Children are not in poverty from lack of food (our government makes sure of this) but they are in poverty for lack of a mother and father under the same roof with them who love and care for them with the mother home full time training and disciplining them and the father working hard to provide for his family.

      This is what children need by far the most along with being told they are loved by their Creator and didn’t come from monkeys. They have worth and value since Christ died for their sins. I do what I can to try to make this happen for as many children as possible.

      1. That’s not entirely true.

        25% of all children with married parents live in poverty

        35% of all children with married parents but who have more than 3 children live in poverty

        50% of all children with married parents but who are of color live in poverty

        1. Those living in poverty in America are richer than the kings of old. They have running hot water, most have TV and iPhones, plenty of food, free education and access to the best health care in the world for free, welfare, etc. or we would be seeing pictures of starving children in America like there are in Africa but we don’t. In fact, more of them carry too much weight. It is a poverty of love and family that way too many children are lacking.

          1. I’m not sure what happened to my previous comment. However, I just wanted to say that the stats you provided are from the 80s and 90s, and many things have changed since then (see my stats on the other hand).

            As well, so many children only eat once a day, the schools provide them with their only meal, but Republicans want to cut funding even for that.

            Furthermore, health care is not free in the US; it is the only developed nation in the world where a family must sell their house and go in debt in order to treat their illness.

            Moreso, pictures of starving American children are readily available, but ignoring to see them does not mean they do not, in fact, exist.

          2. “For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me.” (Jesus from John 12:8)

            I googled starving children in America and couldn’t find any pictures like those children in Africa with bloated stomachs and no good water to drink but the solution to children in poverty isn’t to murder them. Blessings.

    2. Lori, just because there are food stamp programs, housing, etc, does not mean a child will benefit from these. many children who live in abject poverty do so because their parents do things like sell their food stamps for drugs, let random people live with them who eat their food, use their resources, and find other ways to make sure their children suffer. there are many people who are downright HORRIBLE parents even if they are married. and don’t give up their children because of the benefits they receive from them.
      we had a case in my state where a woman was collecting benefits for a DEAD child who was buried in her basement. and the other living children were in diapers at 7 and 8 years old.
      how can we do this to children?

      by cutting social programs and understaffing DCF to ensure that workers will be too busy and children will slip through the cracks?
      just because parents are married doesn’t make them 1. good people or 2. good parents.
      my heart breaks ever time and G_d help me, i wish pain and suffering times 100 on the parents who betray their children this way.
      most people like this won’t give their children up at birth to be adopted out because they can’t even see how evil they are and how unfair it is. they dont know.

      i can imagine that if we made abortion illegal and kept denying access to birth control for women that we would have many children be born to parents who don’t want them or into single parent households where they are more likely to be put in day care, sent to bad schools, and in bad situations because their parents werent prepared or emotionally ready.

      1. Also they should have sex until marriage.if abortion was illegal and birth control as well, I guarantee women would think twice of what they are doing. ..

        1. Do you live in a perfect world?
          Sure, sex should be reserved for marriage. I wholeheartedly agree. But what about rape? Or other sexual crimes? What about coercion amongst teens that, while not ‘rape’ as such, is virtually forced on young people due to peer pressure.

          If abortion was illegal, women would have back-street abortions and risk their lives, as they’ve been doing for hundreds of years. Just because something is illegal doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.

          As for making birth control illegal? That is the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard in my entire life. There are literally dozens of reasons why families, including good, married, stable Christian families, choose to limit the size of their families. There are many good Christians who will tell you that limiting the size of your family is good stewardship – that God actually expects us to be responsible with the gifts (children) he gives us, and not to just be punching them out willy-nilly when we don’t have a way of caring for them adequately.

          We don’t live in a black-and-white world. Black-and-white solutions don’t work.

          1. Also, where I live, abortion is legal under certain circumstances – women can’t just get abortions because they ‘feel like it’. They can, however, get what we call the “morning-after pill” which basically destroys any conception that may have occurred – it needs to be taken within 48 hours after sex. So I guess it, too, is a form of abortion.

            Here, for a woman to get an abortion legally (before 20 weeks), two certified doctors need to agree that continuing the pregnancy would result in serious danger to the woman’s physical or mental health. There are strict criteria that must be met, for this to be determined.
            Abortions performed after 20 weeks are very, very rare here, and are subject to VERY strict criteria.

    3. I don’t think killing unborn babies is right, it is murder which is wrong, but I also don’t think NOT helping them once they are boring is right either. Healthcare is not free in the U.S, I’m not sure where you got that fact.

      Blessings!

      1. Marjorie, firstly if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you would not agree. Yes there is sin in the world but there is a God who will judge all unrighteous acts. Even those who walk in agreement with it. Families would not be in poverty if women would just listen and obey as the scripture says. But by your own words you agree with the ways of the world and you are not being lead by the Spirit. To agree with murder, you are considered an enemy to the Lord…Enough said…

        1. Marjorie yes birth control should be illegal. Tell me are you in control of your life? Are you in control of how much children you will have? You are NOT IN CONTROL of anything. A women can know the day she ovulates but if the Lord does not open up the womb, no amount of planning will make a child. Jeremiah 1:5, before I formed you in the womb I knew you,..before you were born I sanctified you….

          1. Hi submissive

            My husband and I raised 3 beautiful boys together. Each one of these boys was planned.
            We also had 2 miscarriages, both pregnancies were also planned. We decided together when we had 3 healthy, happy boys that our family was complete and took measures to prevent any more babies.

        2. I am indeed a follower of Jesus, submissive. I have been a christian for nearly 40 years (I am 47 now).

          I do not agree with abortion. I will always agree with birth control.

          1. Margorie, there are manywho think they are Christians who believe in a lie. There is a clear difference between a disciple of Jesus Christ and modern day Christianity. Many people such as yorselves believe that birth control is the answer when clearly God is in charge of how many children you will have. You also state you don’t believe in abortion but in a few post down you said that you believe abortion is okay under circumstances. Sin is sin. Yes it’s a horrible thing that someone gets raped by a father or a stranger. Murder is never the answer as Lori stated. If you believe in abortion, I’m sure there are many false things you believe as well. Search the scripture and read it for yourself…smh

  2. I may not agree with you on a lot of things, but I’m with you 100% on this one. Abortion is evil and most are done out of nothing but selfishness when it is inconvenient for a woman to take responsibility for her actions. Less than one percent are due to rape, and most medical reasons can be solved by early delivery. Sure, the baby may or may not make it, but at least there was an effort.

    For those who claim it’s OK if the child will have a serious condition and will not live anyway, I would rather my baby die being held and loved. Also, would anyone kill their already born child if he/she came down with some serious disease?

    Sorry for the rant. Killing babies is something I just can’t stand.

    1. I agree with you 100% and even in the cases of rape, two wrongs don’t equal a right. I have heard women speak who were products of rape and they are just as special and worthy of life as those who were conceived by a loving mother and father.

  3. You would think, with all the profound evidence from ultrasounds and medical science that the unborn are living human individuals, that it would be unthinkable to support abortion. But that would ignore the very powerful emotional incentives that people have for ignoring or even outright denying the facts in order to support abortion. There was an article that came out in the last week or two in The Atlantic claiming that ultrasound technology is misleading and is falsely pushing the idea that unborn babies have a heartbeat and are alive. You can’t make this stuff up. They’re actually denying well-established science in their quest to justify killing babies. When you reject the truth, all that is left to believe is a lie.

    1. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

      19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

      20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

      21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

      22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

      23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

      24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

      25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

      26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

      27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

      28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

      29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

      30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

      31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

      32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1)

      They hold the truth in unrighteousness (they know the truth yet rebel against it) and God turns them over to reprobate minds – unable to distinguish begin good and evil.

  4. Lori,
    I just wanted to thank you for your response to Marcie, it again shows me how to respond to others who don’t agree with me. I agree with you about this issue and yes, I know there are children that our society considers in “poverty”, but with all the free help out there (welfare, food stamps, WIC ect…) there is no reason there should be any child in America going hungry. Maybe at some point someone needs to look at how money for food stamps and welfare is being spent and see if that might help the children. Also, love your point about how children in America are better off than children in other areas of this earth. Most (and I do realize there are a few exceptions) have access to clean water, food, shelter and many other things that I think we take for granted and consider a right, instead of a blessing from God. I feel the same way about women, some want to act like we have it so bad here and even though I have never been to another country, I have heard enough about how women are treated, and it reminds me exactly how good I have it. Yes, I also have been known to take blessings for granted, but when it comes down to it, I know that I am blessed beyond measure. And now back to the point, I saw a Facebook post this morning and it really makes you think, it said

    “Adopting a child should not cost more than aborting one.”

    Anyway just my two cents.

  5. I agree we should advocate for life of all. And I wanted to share a story of my good friend who has an adorable little boy and is now married, but was unmarried at the time of conception in hopes that it might shine some light on what unwed mothers sometimes experience when pregnant. She and her boyfriend had secure jobs, apartments and health insurance (adulting at its finest) and decided to keep the baby, but said it was really hard. She felt socially shamed and stigmatized by her Christian friends when she announced the news. She recognized that she and her boyfriend sinned but no one offered any sort of support. In fact, her parents advocated for and pressured the couple to put the child up for adoption when she had already decided to parent the child. She said that she held high adoption in high regards but felt that she and her partner were at a place in their lives where they could commit to parenting. She also disliked the phrase “give up” when used for adoption. She didn’t want to “give up” her child. I was curious to know how she arrived at the decision to parent and if she considered abortion since she was against giving up her child. She said they had considered abortion as the pregnancy wasn’t planned as it’s an easy way to deal with all the pressure but felt that while they were responsible for their actions and ought to give a chance to the little fellow. However, she understood why women, especially young mothers who may not have a security net (jobs, living wages, partners) might consider abortion rather than be shamed and feeling like they would be against insurmountable odds in raising the child themselves. Because of her experience, she now mentors and counsels women to support rather than shame them during the early days of their pregnancy when things are most confusing.

    I thought her story was interesting in how our language regarding reproduction often shapes women’s decisions when facing an unplanned pregnancy. And I think we, as pro-life supporters ought to be conscious of how we speak about and to women facing a great decision and advocate for love and hope rather than shaming them for their sins (afterall, God is our Judge)

    Love and hope

    P.s. she said if I shared her story, she insisted I encourage all who are reading this not to just advocate for life on the computer but to volunteer/mentor vulnerable women. She said that women’s shelters and domestic abuse shelters were a good place to start working in as these are some of the most disenfranchised women in our nation who are seeking help to make their lives and the lives of their children better.

    1. Those in power need to use their bully pulpits to speak about the value of life and how all life is good, even if it comes about the wrong way. We had a young woman in our life that got pregnant with her boyfriend and we definitely told her we felt badly about it because we did but we also encouraged her to marry her boyfriend. She did marry him, they went on to have four children, and now her husband is actively involved in the church they attend. He became a believer after she married him.

      It’s definitely a disappointment when a young woman gets pregnant before marriage but it’s not the end of the world, it does happen, and abortion (murdering the unborn baby) is not the answer.

  6. Lori,
    I agree with you! How about adoption instead of abortions? There are so many couples who can’t have children who can love and support these children.

    1. I agree completely. I wrote this on my Facebook page: Have ultrasounds as soon as women are about 6 weeks pregnant, let them hear the heart beat, show them that the “blob” inside of them is a baby and encourage them to put their babies up for adoption, if the mothers don’t have the means to provide for them. There are thousands of couples waiting to adopt newborn babies who will pay for her medical costs. Every baby would have a home and experience life instead of death. Teach the value of life!

  7. Thank you for this post!! My sister had an abortion many years ago and she thinks of this every year on the day she decided to end the babies life,needless to say she went on to get counseling for her decision…Please women think of what you are doing to this precious child..there is always adoption

    1. We rarely hear of the trauma this does to the women who have abortions but it is real and horrible. They need to know that there is a human life growing inside of them and value life instead of death. There are many wonderful couples who would love to raise their baby if they don’t.

  8. As a brown skin women I can speak about this. Abortion in the “black”(I really hate saying that word because I’m not a “black” person.) Community is at a very high rate. Right now families are being lead by mothers who really don’t have time for their children. It grieves me to the core because thereally are plenty of women who want children and cannot but it seems like the ones who does not have a problem getting pregnant has abortions. It’s really sad and evil. I hope they really overturn that roe v wade case and maybe just maybe things will start to change for single parent homes. Women will be more responsible and wait until marriage to conceive. Abortion is never a option no matter what the sin is. This is why we as believers must deny ourselves. Those who have had a abortion know that the sin can be forgiven if you repent. Also to add to marcies comment people may live in poverty but they have the richness of Christ in the home because they are walking in obedience. Planned parenthood is a agenda for population control.

  9. My best friend Lynn was is in the hospital due to complications with her pregnancy. The child implanted in the wrong spot and because of this she wold have to deliver early and by cesarean and could not go into active labor. The doctors all told her that she should just abort the baby because it could cause her harm, they all thought that she was crazy because she refused to end the pregnancy they even went so far as to send a chaplain and a psychologist in to speak with her to be sure if she understood what could happen. She stood her ground and now both is she in the baby are both healthy and thriving. This is the reason she remains one of my truest friends to date because of her Everlasting faith in God and in herself.

    1. Above Rubies Magazine is full of miracle stories such as this one you shared, Monique. Women who placed their child’s life in the hands of the Lord instead of doctors who wanted them to abort their babies. It’s a matter of trusting the Giver of life or mere man.

  10. I lost a second baby to a miscarriage a couple of weeks after Christmas, and I just can’t imagine what goes through the mind of a woman who wants an abortion. I understand not every woman wants to have children, but why not place them for adoption so they can still have a chance. I try to fight for them without getting too angry but it’s incredibly difficult sometimes.

    1. It’s difficult, Taylor, because they aren’t rational at times and it’s hard to try to discuss things when they don’t believe in a Creator who knit us together in our mother’s womb. If we come from monkeys and there’s no purpose really for our existence, I can see why abortion is okay but when we know how much God values life, all life, it changes the equation dramatically.

    2. I am the same, Taylor. I have had 2 miscarriages, 12 and 15 years ago now. They were both heartbreaking. I could never willingly choose to abort a baby and I can’t think of a single circumstance where I would personally have an abortion. But having supported one of my sons friends through an abortion (her father raped her and she had very serious mental issues that meant an abortion was the best choice for her) I can also understand why, in some very rare circumstances, an abortion is the best choice for a very few women.

      1. Just wanting to know. And I realise they are very sensative circumstances, but did the abortion rid this woman of the memory or pain of what her father did to her? I doubt it. That will affect her for the rest of her life. Only God can heal her pain. She should of been supported giving the child up for adoption, supported thru counselling and not thru the murder of an innocent life.

        1. No of course it didn’t AnonM. I think the abortion was every bit as traumatic as the rape.
          She WAS supported through counselling and encouraged towards adoption, which she did consider. However, adoption also can have terrible consequences for the birth mother, especially if she wants the child but is unable to keep it for whatever reasons. Back in the 60s here, we had awful “homes” where young, unwed mothers would be sent to when they got pregnant, their babies were basically taken away at birth and put up for adoption and the mothers had basically no say in this. I know some of these women today and they are still traumatised by the experience. To be honest, I don’t know what the solution is.

    3. Taylor, I don’t know if you’ll see this, but I just wanted to say that I’m sorry for your loss. I’m sure it is difficult.

  11. About adoption, I think that’s another way to say you don’t have to deal with your responsibilitys, someone else will. Yes there are plenty of people who are willing to adopt, but there are also people with unclean intentions who want to adopt as well (i.e. sodomites/homosexuals). If women would be more responsible in there actions than there would not be so much problems today. I’m not trying to blame everything on the women but since the beginning eve wanted to be God. Nothing has change. The feminist movement is growing at a rapid pace. There was this song years ago I don’t know who sang it but is goes like this”I know what I want and I want it now”..sung by a female…

    1. That’s the kind of attitude that makes women more willing to get an abortion rather than place their baby for adoption. It might not be a perfect system but spreading even more stigma about it than what already exists is not the way to handle it.

      1. You still are not seeing the big picture. The media promotes sex and whoremongers on t.v., toutube, Facebook live etc. If people would be more mindful about what they are doing than this would not be an issue. Basically women want to go around having see freely with who ever they want to, but then oops I’m pregnant and now you want to have an abortion /adoption? That’s like saying I don’t have to be responsible for my actions somebody will take care of my responsibilities. Or better yet they can kill there baby and itll be out of sight and out of mind. It boggles my mind how wicked this society has become and are so out of touch with reality. One day we will stand before a Just God and we will be held accountable for everything that we do. A baby can cry out for help…you don stop to think about the physical pain a baby feels during abortion? Some are still alive after being ripped from the womb…everyone is out for self and not thinking about the innocence of these little ones…smh

    2. Submissive,

      Last time I checked, it takes a man and a woman to make a baby. Implying that unplanned pregnancies are the result of irresponsible women is just ignorant.

      1. Please no name calling. ..yes the man plays his part ad well but unfortunately in society, the children falls upon the women if the man decides to leave…let’s not be blind to reality…a women should not be having sex outside of marriage period. That’s the root of the problem. If you agree with abortion then you are apart of the problem ..

        1. Hi submissive, how about cases of incest and rape? Is it the fault of the woman? Adoption can be a godly option for pregnant women who are victims of incest and rape. Thank you.

          1. Of course that’s not the fault of the women…I think you already knew that…and I’m not speaking about those situations. .I’m speaking in regards to loose women who want to have sex freely and then want to abort or adopt their children. Women in those types of situations can go to God in prayer for strength because after all a child is involved and it is not the fault of the child. Thank you…

    3. Hi Submissive,
      Im sure there are some irresponsible women, but there would be a number of them that got pregnant thru no fault of their own. There would also be some that couldnt care less and want to free themselves of the impending task. So I agree to a point. But if another kid attacks my disabled daughter on the school busand she finds herself pregnant.and she is physically incapable of defending herself, is it her fault? She is always well covered but there are sick people out there who would take advantage. So its a bit of a blanket statement to say that it is the result of irresponsible womem. As that is not always the case.

      1. Hi anonm, again I’m not speaking about women who get raped,molested etc. Im speaking about loose women who want to be free to choose what to do with there bodies. In a situation as the one you mentioned of course it’s not the women’s fault. If she finds herself pregnant God is able to bring her through . He is all knowing and capable if we put our full trust in Him. This is my point.

  12. This is a bit of a strange question, but one I have never been able to find an answer to: At what age does an unborn baby have a soul? Is it at conception, birth, or when?

      1. Thank you Lindsay. That was my personal belief, too, but others have always argued with me about it, saying it’s not until birth.

  13. I live in a state of Australia that has the most violent abortion laws in the world. I also have a sister in law to be who is the head nurse at such a clinic. She genuinely believes she is saving womens lives by performing such procedures. Its so sad. And at each pro life rally, the hate and violence and vulgar words that come forth out of the mouths of prochoicers. Its disgusting. But funnily enough, because of the peaceful, loving way the pro lifers acted in response to the hate, many women changed their views on abortion at one such rally and chose to keep their baby. 🙂

    1. AnomM, I would be interested in knowing why you think Australia has the most violent abortion laws in the world? What are the rates of abortion in Australia compared to other countries? From my knowledge laws vary from state to state, some stricter than others. Only around 1% of all abortions are late term.

        1. If you reread my statement carefully, I said ‘I live in a STATE ( Not yelling when i say this, just to point out what was actually said. ;-)of Australia that has the most violent abortion laws in the world. ‘Other states here may differ. I also did not say they had the most abortions. So if you were trying to discredit me, nice try. If you werent. So be it.The link I posted backs up my claim.

          That is a direct link to the abortion laws in my state.

          1. No I wasn’t trying to discredit you at all, I was just interested. It would be interesting to know if your state has higher abortions numbers to other parts of Australia considering the laws. I might have a look tomorrow.

            Thankyou for replying.

  14. Abortion is so sad on so many levels to me. First and foremost, it takes an innocent life formed by God. Beyond that, it is a heartbreaking answer to a crisis pregnancy. Women who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy need support with whatever choice they make. If a woman chooses to abort, we need people who can come alongside her when she experiences grief and regret. If a woman chooses to parent, she will likely need support in raising her child, particularly if she is not marrying the father. If a woman chooses adoption, she will also need support, because adoption is not an easy answer. As an adoptive mom I saw the grief that our child’s birth mother experienced when she handed her little baby over to us. I am sure she thinks about her child all the time, and I pray that she has had the support she has needed over the years. Adoption is a beautiful thing, and I’m personally very grateful for it, but it isn’t without its own struggles and regrets for the woman who chooses to place her baby into the arms of another family.
