“A person is a person, no matter how small…”

This week (hopefully) we will welcome to our family a little girl.  We don’t know what she looks like yet, how much she weighs (hopefully not as much as her brother did…ouch!), or what she will accomplish in her life.  However, we do know one thing for sure…she is a daughter of God and has something to offer this world no one else can.  Even though we don’t yet know her, we love her, and are so happy she will be joining us.  

I only hope we can teach her that same love for life.  In this world, so many people are confused about who they are and how to treat others, what is right, and what is wrong.  Society’s values are really messed up, and will only get worse unless we make a stand in our communities, schools, and families.  Wise words come to mind when I think about having a daughter “when you save a girl, you save a generation.”  
This world is a wonderful place, but it’s also a tough one, can you blame her for staying inside as long as she possibly can?  Even though this pregnancy has been hard on my body, I am grateful that I can have a child.  It is a priviledge and an honor to help give someone life.  There are too many people in the world who do not see it as such, and yet so many others who long for the opportunity to have a child and cannot.  I found this video in my email and felt like it hit the nail on the head.  Everyone should watch this, and think about how they can make a difference….

    Yah, who can blame her for waiting as long as possible? We are all becoming more and more dependent on God as we try to live happily through these times.
