From the Shadows into the Light!
Author: Sheri Baby Name: Joel O. Gather Birth Date: September 1980 Abortion Date: March 16, 1980
Year after Year that has gone by, I’ve only seen you as a shadow in my mind.
That dark empty place is where you lived in my heart. I often wept for the feeling of loss, could not explain it, so I set you a-part.
I was the convict that threw away the keys; no-one would know not even me.
You saw my emotions that came like the wind. I’m sorry it made you afraid; because of my shame you felt alone.
Today, I’m taking the step to remember who you are, bringing you out into the light so you can live and have a life.
I’ve seen a picture of your little hand, holding onto Jesus as His little lamb. It’s like you were waiting for this appointed time, to come out of the shadows of my mind.
You seemed happy and content; I have acknowledged you, now you know I did repent.
You have a name, this I know….for God is willing that all be known. Because of this we named you Joel, for God restores and makes me whole. Thank you for praying for your Daddy and me; because of Jesus Christ we are now on our journey to be whole and set free. There are days where I miss you so, the hurt pops up, I cry and wish I could hold you and love you. The difference now is I have acknowledged you and I know whom to go.I can’t wait to meet you someday where there will be no pain.
You’re our little angel we will never forget so we sing this song to you as a gift! This is a simple one you may know, join us little ones in all accord!

You are loved!
