It’s Another Boy!

July 30, 2015  |  adoption, blog

I have been praying, and hoping, and waiting, and crying out to God for a child for almost two years now. Going through fertility issues is one of the most stressful and heart-wrenching experiences I’ve had to deal with in my short life of 30 years thus far. Nicole and I had a miscarriage about a year and a half ago, and have been desperately trying to get pregnant again ever since, with no luck as of yet.

When I watch the despicable horrors of these videos being released about Planned Parenthood and their profiting from the sale of fetus organs, it doesn’t break my heart… it completely shatters it. Thousands of women each day choose to have their unwanted children killed rather than born, and we are sitting here praying and hoping each month that God would finally answer our cries and bless us.

As if taking innocent life wasn’t enough, Planned Parenthood is now incentivized for doing it! No wonder only 1,880 women “chose” an adoption referral in 2013 compared to the 327,653 abortions performed by Planned Parenthood that year… That’s 174 to 1! That’s just under 900 deaths per day; 900 heartbeats that were forcibly stopped; 900 futures that would never be known; 900 souls that never got to love.

A woman who walked into Planned Parenthood in 2013 was 174 times more likely to get an abortion than choose any other mode of coping with an unwanted pregnancy. That has nothing to do with “planning” or “parenthood”… that’s genocide – the mass killing of a specific category of human beings for one’s own personal cause, in this case: convenience.

It’s appalling to me how those who pride themselves on fighting for civil rights and social justice keep silent on this. Where is the evangelical left on abortion?! They expend every bit of energy they can muster up fighting for the civil rights of gay people to get married, but then turn their back when it comes to the human rights of millions of innocent human beings to simply live. Or even worse, consider the rights of a woman to convenience over the rights of an innocent child to life! Why not just give parents the right to kill their own child when the going gets tough? (“I brought you into this world; I can take you out of it!”)

But lets be honest – this is America. The country where killing an African lion on safari upsets more people than killing babies and selling their body parts. While today #AnotherBoy and #lifematters are trending on social media, a month from now no one will care anymore… only those of us with shattered hearts, those of us who will remain in the settling dust as the media washes over into its next cycle… still praying, still hoping, still waiting on God for our own blessing.

If anyone out there reads this and is considering abortion, I will take your baby. My wife and I will gladly take all your babies! I’m completely serious. If you are pregnant and don’t want your child, we will. It’s not a fetus. It’s a blessing. Life matters.

  1. I just read your story for the first time. Bless your hearts for what you are doing! My husband and I are in the infertility journey ourselves. And starting the adoption process. We are with an angency, but also we are planning to advertise ourselves and maybe get a baby that way. It’s a big step for us. But we are excited! If you hear of any moms choosing life and looking for adoption keep us in mind 😉

  2. This breaks my heart for yall l’s family 👪 ill pray for both of y’all’s family’s.its breaks my heart seeing ppl choose to kill a baby I gave two children and would have so many more if I could ! Our family is doing fostering because of parents that have children but don’t take care of them .

  3. My husband and I have been married for almost 2 years, and have had one miscarriage, we are so ready for a child in our lives, but it is so expensive to adopt. We would love to have a baby in the worst way, I pray for he or she daily.

    If you find a woman who wants to give her baby to a Christian family please contact us!

  4. I commend what you are doing. My wife and I relate to you and your wife in many ways, but we are expecting great things based on what we are learning at Charis Bible College (online)! We have been inspired by your actions to do more in our part of the world. We have an abortion clinic here, and we are ponding putting some signs together to join with you in this movement. 🙂
