A friend of mine recently posted this video on her blog. It's a song about the longing for a baby and the pain that comes when that dream is not easily realized. It's a cruel truth of this fallen world that there are many who don't want children and yet conceive them even without "trying," while there are others who deeply desire children but find that God's timing or will is not theirs. So they find themselves waiting and hoping and praying. Meanwhile our president promises to do everything in his power to enable women who don't want their babies to kill them.
If you've never seen this video before, you might want to get your hankie. And if you are someone who believes that every child is wanted, if not by his human parents then certainly by the God who created him, and that innocent human life should be protected at all stages, please consider participating in Red Envelope Day on March 31, 2009. Details here.
To anyone who is waiting, my prayers are with you.
