Save the Humans...save our Child

Our pastor started a new series called Save the Humans...powerful message!!!

I sat there in a complete hormonal mess as he talked about how during childbirth if the Hebrew woman was giving birth to a boy then the midwives were to kill the child.

15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 "When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth and observe them on the delivery stool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, let her live." 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do. Ex 1:15-17

I wanted to stand up and say....that's the way I feel about our child!!! His life MUST be spared...his life MUST count for something!

My heart is so burdened for the salvation of our child. The salvation from beginning to end...first off be saved from death...our child could easily have been aborted but obviously our birthmom is choosing life.

And then God saving this child and placing him/her in our home. Please hear me on this...I still love our birthmom...but again...she realizes that its in the best interest of this baby for her to choose adoption!

And then the salvation of his heart. I cant wait until the day that this precious child accepts Jesus as his/her Lord and Savior.

I want our child to be rescued SOON!!! I want him/her home with us!

I want to love on our birthmom...I'm telling you...the love I have for her is absolutely the most amazing thing. I never thought I would be so passionate about a woman giving birth...but she is giving birth to our child. Forever I will be grateful. We HAVE to change our minds on birthmoms...they are WOMEN who need a SAVIOR and need us as adoptive mothers to love on them. Now I know not every situation is the same...sometimes the birthmom/family doesn't want to have anything do with the adoptive family...this is where we PRAY like never before. Don't we want our child's heritage to be healthy and Christ centered! These birthmoms are precious....I'm telling you...I cant wait to meet her!

Save the Humans...save our Child. Please join with me in prayer today! I am crying out to our Father that he will bring a birthmom to NEW LIFE (our agency), that she will look at our profile and SOMETHING will capture her heart about our family. The enemy is alive and he wants NOTHING more for this child to NOT come into this world. No body messes with a Gerdes Baby!!!!! This child has been CHOSEN...chosen to be apart of this world, chosen to serve and love!!! Please pray today for a miracle to take place.

Thanks for the wonderful post on so many levels. Thanks for pointing out that we have an obligation to change the world's view of birthparents. I am continually shocked by the judgement placed on birthmoms by my Christian acquaintances. It is sad and hurts me to the core. I can't imagine how it makes my children feel when they hear things said about their birthparents.

I will pray for a miracle sweet friend!
