Meant to Be

I have never agreed with abortion. I think that this dates back to hearing my big sis talk so strongly about it because I know that I have thought about it for a long time. My heart breaks for mommies who have made that decision and then later regret it. I believe in a loving, forgiving God who will open His arms to you. I believe in a God that makes no mistakes, and since he made every single human, no human is a mistake. Magdalena and Walt are reminders of this. Would anyone look at Magdalena and call her an accident? I wouldn't because God entrusted me with her, and for that I am always so thankful. And as my heart was breaking with my arms empty without her, I discovered even while she was with us, He had created another perfect being. Both of their lives have different purposes for His glory, but they both glorify God. I can't think of Magdalena and not think of how amazing and merciful he is, and I cannot see Walt and think of how giving He is. Walt is a reminder that he did not leave me nor forsake me. Not everyone's reminder is in the form of a baby like Walt, but mine is.

I like this song:

    Some mommies that are faced with a bad diagnosis of pregnancy may feel that termination is the best option. For some people going forward with the pregnancy is the right choice...for other's it may not be. However, it is not up to us to make others feel bad for what ever decision that is made. I had to make the decision...and it was he right one for me. I am glad that your decision was right one for you.

  2. Julie, I am thankful that it was never a thought for you to abort Magdalena either. It was a joy to know her, and she blessed so many people. I also am encouraged by the fact that you see God's mercy in her life. She was beautiful. And Walt is always a joy to see, with that smile radiating!
