4,000. That is an estimated 1,460,000 a year. I just shake my head in disbelief. Really?
I am holding my babies a little closer today. I can't imagine my world without them.
They are the BEST decisions of my life.
This past weekend we had the privilege of standing guard at our local abortion clinic.
Waiting, watching, praying, and hoping that the men and women going in and out would somehow be touched by our presence and have a change of heart.
40 Days for Life is now taking place (September 26th - November 5th)!
You can be a part of this incredible pro-life movement too.
Prayers, fasting, and abortion clinic "guardians" are needed!
Every little sacrifice counts.
We brought our babies with us. I think they are such a testimony!
They enjoyed eating breakfast in the stroller and running up and down the sidewalk.
Signs of life in a culture of death.
It was overwhelming to think that as my healthy, beautiful children ran around outside of the clinic...
healthy, beautiful children were being executed inside.
They LOVED this sign.
They wanted to touch it. Whack it. Sit by it.
Haha. Oh boys! A good message though. So true.
Please do your part. Every effort counts. Here are some stats from 40 Days for Life's website...

Pretty exciting! God is good.
Remember that this battle continues to rage even after the 40 days are over.
Let us take this effort beyond November 5th.
Let us look to a day where the womb is no longer the most dangerous place in the world.
If you, or someone you know, is in a crisis pregnancy or has had an abortion, there is help out there.

Also - October Baby is an AWESOME and INSPIRING movie about a girl who survived a botched abortion that was just released on DVD & BluRay. We recently just added this title to our collection! This is a message full of HOPE, BEAUTY, and FORGIVENESS! Lots of resources to be found on the DVD!
Joining all my brothers and sisters in prayer these 40 Days for Life!
Praying for miracles.
