Day 4: Victory

I was unable to update yesterday but there was such a victory this week.

I found out that a friend of mine had her baby recently. When I met her she was 17 weeks pregnant, abortion-minded, and just very conflicted and under a lot of stress.

When I received word about the birth I was so excited! I just thought wow, this is real... women do CHOOSE LIFE! I prayed for her so much this year and tried, with all of my grand 18 yr. old wisdom, to be of some assistance (what can you say to someone who says "I don't think God is real anymore and I have an appointment for an abortion tomorrow"?) and although I personally really didn't have much advice to bestow on her it was wonderful to see how others could reach out and help her, how others could relate to her and really show her there are people who want to help you and love you.

The icing on the Pro-Life cake was when I heard the baby's name. It is the same name I have had picked out for my first born son for years. Not sure if I'll still keep it for my baby name now (gotta be original, right?) but it gave me chills that this child - the first child I have actually known while his life was in danger of destruction - will have the same name that I'd always wanted for my own first child. I don't know how to explain why it feels so special, it just does.
