Over this past fall weekend we did some fun family activities with our
children. We were really enjoying ourselves watching the little ones
discovering things and asking a million questions. As we picked the
perfect pumpkins to carve for our harvest-fest, I looked into the
beautiful faces of those little ones who almost didnít make it because
they were slated for abortion; but because there were people who cared,
they are here today to enjoy life and be blessings to so many others.
We are turning a page of
the calendar and going into the month of November. We would like to
encourage you and others that November is also National Adoption month.
Our ministry is actually working on our 42nd adoption; A
baby that was rescued and saved from the jaws of death. But,
aside from adoption, there are also many babies and children sitting in
the foster care system that would love to have a family to enjoy
stability and the simple things in life.
We want, therefore, to
encourage other pro-lifers to get into programs such as Big Brothers and
Big Sisters or the foster care program in your area. Visit www.foster-adopt.org.
Unfortunately, we have a drug and alcohol epidemic going on in our
nation. The numbers are staggering. Since so many addicts and unable to
be parents, their children become wards of the state. I ask you, as
Christians, isnít it our duty to be our brotherís keeper? Are these
children not worthy of our love and time? Yes, we can make a difference
in their lives, just like those babies being led to their slaughter at
the abortion mill but, as prolifers, letís not limit our dedication
and passion for life only to unborn babies, but letís also extend it
to those who have made it past the abortion mill. Just a motivating
thought. : )

she who gave you birth rejoice!Ē
