Just the Q

Posted on

I have to admit, when I started this whole blogging thing, I knew it was going to be ton of work.  Getting my blog up and running with all the content I wanted to include seemed to be a never ending project.  But you see, I thought that if I could just get all of the main content done, the actual blogging would be easy.  Ha!  Boy, was I wrong!

I constantly find myself thinking, “I am a terrible blogger.  I am disappointing my readers by not posting often enough.”  I think it is safe to say that I am probably accurate on these assumptions.  However, for someone who needs absolute quiet in order to get her thoughts written down in a reader friendly manner, my house does not provide a conducive environment to do said task.  With a less than fun pregnancy taking every ounce of my energy and a toddler who would much rather hang out about an inch away from mommy no matter where mommy is, makes writing difficult to say the least.  Now factor in the sassy pre-teen boy who as of late, simply must press every one of his mothers hot buttons (oh the eye-rolling that has taken place in my home has reached epic proportions)!   So, as you can guess, what my wonderful and amazing readers get are the leftovers: one frazzled mama.  What am I to do with a bunch of fabulously bored readers with nothing new to read?

Shall I post about how my heart is broken for Owen and all the other children in Russia who won’t get the opportunity to have a family here in the U.S.?  Or shall I scream about how angry I am that children who are in dire need will be denied the possibility of a family here, making their chances of being adopted at all very low if at all?

Like this beautiful creature.  How can they tell her “no”.  This sweet thing has gone from this:

To this:  Lina-update-Oct-2012-215x300as6z-lina-updatejan2013-279x300

In less than a year. Little Lina has wasted away. She will be 2 years old in June.

 My heart is breaking for her, for all of them.  So many faces fading away into oblivion it seems (big sigh).

Nope, I just can’t think about that now.  It tears me up, but all I can do is pray.    I can whine, and stomp my feet, but that won’t do any good.  Only God can fix this.

So what shall I blog then?

I know – I will ask you all a question or two.

Has the information on my blog done anything positive for any of you?

Has the information on my blog opened any eyes?

Yes, I know the sections are lengthy.  But truly, I need your thoughts.

I ask these things because I need to know if what God has asked me to do is doing the good that I hoped it would.

Is there any information I should add to my content on here?

Constructive criticism is good, however I do ask that when responding, all comments remain kindly worded.  Thank you!

I appreciate everyone’s feedback!

God Bless-

Healing And Truth

Abortion can ruin a woman’s life.  It can destroy her emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  My heart breaks for all those babies who have lost their lives as well as all the women who felt they had no other choice but to give in and have an abortion.  I would actually like to hear from my readers on this!  Is abortion part of your story?  Have you decided to have an abortion and then changed your mind?  Do you know someone who has experienced either of these scenarios?  Please, I would love to hear about it – good or bad.   Why did you decide what you did?

Abortion is a touchy subject, I know, and I am fairly sure everyone who reads my blog knows where I stand on it.  However, I do understand that many women live with the scars of the choice they made at a vulnerable time and afterwards realized it was the wrong choice.  I pray for healing in your hearts, ladies, if this is you.  Some continue to choose abortion as their preferred method of birth control, which is so sad.    It is these women I pray for the most.  Not that I don’t pray for ALL of them, I just meant that it’s the women who go back for seconds and thirds and fourths I really pray for.

ALL life is precious.  Whether a child is healthy or not, has down syndrome or any other “defect” as so many call it, that child is perfect in the eyes of God.   All children are fearfully and wonderfully made and should be given the same chance at life as any other.  That is one reason why my heart breaks for the orphans.  They are seen as “defective” and aren’t even given a chance at all.   Makes my mommy heart so sad.

How precious…

I remember recently reading a story about a woman who was pregnant with twins and learned that one twin had a heart defect.   Let me repeat that, A HEART DEFECT.  Most heart defects are operable.  Anyway, following the advice of her doctor she agreed to terminate the one twin and keep the healthy one.  Once the procedure was over she discovered that they had aborted her healthy baby, and she was still pregnant with the “defective” one which she then had terminated as well.  Wow, really?  I obviously have not walked in her shoes and should not judge  but I still wonder how on earth one can make a decision like that?

Let me just say that this is just ONE case.  There are many more like it.

It saddens me that our world is so afraid of “different”.  In some countries, I have heard that orphanage staff  refuses to even touch children with down syndrome or autistism for fear they can catch it!    Oh my!  Why?  Again I would love to hear from my readers on this!  Why are people so afraid of “different”?

The link below will take you to a series of eye opening accounts from many different ex-abortion employees.  The testimonies you will hear are those of ultrasound technicians, nurses, administrative staff, etc.   It is a side of the dark and vastly growing world of abortion that I think we all need to hear.

It is shocking to hear so many say that those performing procedures were not even medically trained, how many women were seen as dollar signs and not people, how the staff purposefully kept patients in the dark regarding the risks and specifics about the procedure so they would not change their minds, and how many of these people became excited at the growing pile of dead babies in trash bags in their back room on a daily basis, because the more dead babies there were, the more money they would get.  This video does not show anything explicit.  However, it is a compelling series of interviews.  The link below will take you to parts 1 thru 4.

Once you have watched it, I would like to know your thoughts.  Is this new information for you?  What do you think about all this?

Part 1

Part 2

part 3

Some other tidbits you will find in this video series:

  • Providers at abortion clinics have been purposely prescribing low hormone birth control pills because they knew of the high failure rate and in turn guaranteed themselves repeat customers.
  • Many reports of women coming back for repeat abortions as in, more than 3 and even more than 5.
  •  A former abortion ultrasound technician tells about how she has witnessed what is called “silent scream”.  As the baby is being aborted, the baby appears to be screaming in the womb.  This haunting account also describes how she witnessed babies pull away from the abortion instruments, trying to get away.  Let me tell you, this made me shrivel inside.  Those babies feel what is being done to them.

This is part 4 which speaks about the above.

No big post today. I just have a question for my readers.

What did you think of the documentary in my post Abandoned?

I just want to know if it hit you all as hard as it hit me.  How did it make you feel?  What were your thoughts?

If you haven’t yet watched each segment, please take some time to do so.   The story of these children is one which needs to be heard and seen.   Once you have watched it, I would love to know your thoughts.    You can click on the word “Abandoned” above to go to the page where you will find the video links.

Thanks, friends!

Hope to hear from some of you soon!
