The "A" Word

I ran across this article this morning and it's just been on my mind all day. I won't post the picture for those with a queasy stomach but will link to the article if you'd like to read it... just keep in mind that the picture is somewhat graphic.

You can click here to read...

For those of you who would rather not read it;

The article is about a funeral service for a baby girl who was killed in a late-term abortion and the picture is of that tiny baby in an open casket.

Yep, I said it. ABORTION; the thing no one wants to talk about but everyone has a strong opinion about.

Believe what you want about the 'A' word but I don't know a soul out there who can look at that picture and argue that this sweet girl is indeed just that; a sweet, precious, baby girl.

Wanna know why this makes me so sad? Why I'm so passionate about it? Why I felt the need to share with you?

Because we would have done ANYTHING, under ANY circumstance to be that baby-girls family. And if we weren't the right family, I know a hundred others who would have done the same.

That hurts my heart so much.

I wonder; what made her mother feel so hopeless that the best option she could find was abortion? It was late-term... was she uncertain? Maybe until the very last moment?

Regardless, that baby-angel is in Heaven and I look forward to the day when I can give her a hug!

We pray for our next baby's first mom and dad each and every day; one of these days (or one already passed) they will be faced with the exact same decision as this baby's mom and dad.

I'm so thankful to already know the outcome of their painful decision...

"Trick Treat" From Our Princess Peacock!

I know I know... Halloween was a week ago. As I mentioned before, I'm not crazy about Halloween BUT I AM crazy about our Princess Peacock.....

Who had some trouble finding her smile during our backyard photo-shoot....

"Hannah, Say CHEESE!"

"Please Hannah? Say CHEESE for Mommy!"

"Really? I know you have a smile in there somewhere..."
"HANNAH!! Show Mommy your Princess smile..."

"THERE'S my girl!" 

Hannah and Mommy even made a special TuTu bucket for her candy....

And it was a HIT around the neighborhood!

I'd LOVE to see what your pumpkin(s) dressed up as this year... If you'd like to share, please link up!

Okay, Fine... I Admit It; I Want Justin Bieber's Christmas Album!

This is a hard day for me. I heard just a sample of Justin Bieber's newly released Christmas album and Oh. My. Gosh. I really want it! I posted a 'test' status on Facebook to see if I was the only one (well, the only one my age) who wants this album and I told myself that if my status was left un-responded to for 5 minutes, I would take it down....and guess what!?! I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE! LOTS of my friends want it, too... and some already bought it ;-)

There's my confession.

I feel like a teenager... ;-)

Your turn... what's YOUR guilty teenage confession!?!
