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 didn’t 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, isn’t it our duty to be our brother’s 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, let’s not limit our dedication and passion for life only to unborn babies, but let’s also extend it to those who have made it past the abortion mill. Just a motivating thought. : )
