My Child – You were my only child. Your life in my womb was so brief. But it was not without value. You brought me into a closer, deeper relationship with Jesus. A relationship that I want to share with others so that they too can be abundantly blessed in that relationship. You helped me realize how deep and wide and far is the grace and mercy of God. You helped me appreciate the value and love of “forgiveness”. You humbled me and taught me, and that I might share with others, that I have no room to judge others and that I am far from unblemished and far from good, or “better than”. And you helped me to realize that God’s way would have produced a better outcome, and that I can trust Him in what might seem like a hopeless circumstance, and that He can produce beauty from my ashes. I’m grateful of the confidence I can have that the Lord himself holds you in the palm of His magnificent hands. I cut your life short, but it was not without meaning or value. Thank you for your gifts. And sorry you didn’t have a mother that knew how to protect and care for you.

The lessons learned in your heartwarming story have been lessons learned in my life, as well. It has been an ongoing lesson in humility as I continue to realize the gravity of my sin against God in aborting my child in 1971 (My story: Baby Rose in Heaven, May 2014) . It has enabled me to understand, in the depth of my heart, the daily gift of God’s mercy. My child is with the Lord… Blessings, Charlotte
