Let’s not forget any mother today, in our thoughts and prayers, even the one who is very much motherly, but has never even conceived a child. In her heart, her love and caring is all as real as Our Mother Mary, who bore just one Son, but is now the New Mother of All The Living.

Abortion & The Sibling Puzzle

Posted by | May 4, 2017 | One Comment

The devastation to unborn children from abortion is obvious.  However, with over 58 million abortions in our country, it is hard to imagine that they would be the only children impacted.

It is remarkable how many kids, when they learn of an abortion in their family, react with the statement, “so now things make sense.” It is as if a missing piece of their lives that they were so aware of, suddenly has put the puzzle of life together for them.

It doesn’t seem to matter if the abortion was before or after their birth, the impact remains in the fabric of the family, affecting every member to some degree. Read More
