Adoption instead of abortion

February 7, 2013 

In 1987, a young woman found herself pregnant and knew she was unable to provide the life she wanted for her unborn child. She had a choice to make — adoption or abortion. Instead of killing her unborn child, she chose to give him life, a life that would be an incredible blessing to another family.

God had great plans for this child and every other child who has ever been conceived, for it is God who knits us together in our mother's womb. This baby is now a young man who is living out his dream and using the gifts God gave him.

I pray this letter will open people's eyes to the truth: God has a plan for each one of us, and every life is a gift. Please choose life and give others a chance to live out God's plan for their lives.
