"" Life A Bit Sweeter: The Courage of Birth Moms

The Courage of Birth Moms

Contrary to the belief of many, I believe that moms who choose to give up their children are incredible, courageous, and virtuous. In spite of their circumstances, they make the choice of 'life' for their children instead of aborting them. It takes a lot of courage and selflessness, especially given the world that we live in, to decide to carry a child for 9 months, bond with that child during that time, and then selflessly give them up so that they may have a better life.

Some may say, "She had no business getting pregnant in the first place!" I say, "Be careful of the stones that you cast." Let's continue to pray for moms (and families) in these tough situations. In fact, the next time you urge a mom to not abort or give up their child, please be sure you are the first one in line to buy diapers, pay for daycare, food, and the essentials that this unborn child will need. Instead of condemning, let's open up our hearts to understanding and compassion. For theirs is a difficult choice to make and you never really know what you'd do until you're actually standing in someone else's shoes.

This story touched my heart and I hope that it will touch yours as well.

Very well said! That is something that we all should remember "not to cast stones". It is great to read what you said about this. You are right none of us know what is truly going on or the situation is (even though we think we might) unless we are going through THAT EXACT situation that someone else is we have truly no idea.
