A quote: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

I’ll start with a story …………
*****************************

She smiled at her son, and as she reached up to hug him she thought of the happy infant he had been. His fall off his first two-wheeler, the broken arm, scribbled birthday cards to her, and Little League trophies, his face as he saw his bride approach and the excitement in his voice when he told her of his first child. He looked down at her, smiling, guessing her thoughts.

A hand was patting her awake, the machine was turned off, someone hustling out of the room carrying a silvered basin.

“All done. Thank you for choosing Planned Parenthood.”

*****************************

Now, it’s your turn.

    All we had left was a few friends. Doubt was a big part of our lives for the past year. People doubted that we’d end up together or that our marriage would last because we were “too young.” And when we found out she was pregnant, both of us doubted that we were ready.

    Of course, our “friends” and “family” offered money for an abortion. They reminded us how we still had a full life. God forgive me but we nearly gave into them.

    And then I heard the doctor’s words that burned away all doubt.

    “Congratulations. It’s a boy.”

    New Orleans, October 1939.
    The mother looks at her newborn’s little feet and says to herself,
    Maybe my baby boy will grow up and:
    Trod the bases like Lou Gehrig,
    Score touchdowns like Bronko Nagurski,
    Stand before a jury like Clarence Darrow,
    Fight bulls like Juan Belmonte,
    Run the 100 meters like Jesse Owens,
    Dance like Fred Astaire,
    Conduct an orchestra like Arturo Toscanini, or even
    Address Congress like FDR.
    The nurse comes into the room and asks,
    “What first name do you want on the birth certificate, Mrs. Oswald?”
    She replies, “I think ‘Lee Harvey’ would be nice.”
