A Lifetime to remember

Check out the cool envelope!


 Our son really touched our hearts today.  Samuel has tagged along and even volunteered at Lifetime Pregnancy Help Center in Springfield Il on days I volunteer. However, I wasnt really aware of the impact it has been making on his heart. Like the child we have known for almost four months, Samuel put his compassion to work. God so inspired him that even with his limited language skills he picked up the Lifetime PHC's  Walk for Life pledge sheet and began to ask people,"Please, can you help?"

   To know that Samuel was once an orphan and could have been aborted in 1997 really moves me to thank God for the grace he has bestowed upon us in Samuels life.  What a gift! The compassion that has followed is a reminder that prayers can change a child's world. Many of you prayed for Samuel! Despite his past his heart remains compassionate for the unborn, post abortion sufferers and the families that do not have resources in the midst of their crisis pregnancy.  He understands abortion and has come to his own decision that it is wrong to take a life. 

 He collected fourteen pledges from generous friends and new friends at Gracie Barra. The grand total is $354.00 He was bold to ask and I hope that boldness rubs off on the rest of his! 

God Bless you and thank you for helping!

  1. This is amazing and powerful because Daria has also made her own decision that taking the life of an unborn child is wrong. She has become a very vocal prolife advocate in the one year since her adoption. Intriging that their very difficult childhoods would lead them to that conclusion.

    Our love to you all!
