With all this talk of abortion right now, I want people to know that this is what a 22 week old child looks like. This was just minutes after my twins passed away after living and breathing for about 30 minutes last November (Chase, the one on the right, looks different because he was in the sac without amniotic fluid for a couple days). It is legal to abort children at this age in way too many places. While I was holding my babies, wishing they would survive, babies at the same gestation that could have survived are being torn apart and discarded. It makes my heart sad. There are so many better options (adoption being my personal favorite). These are precious children of God. I love you Chase and Cooper, and I hope someone will see this and reconsider their choice.
UPDATE: Since this post has gotten such a huge response, I have started a blog. I hope to use it to update people about our story, and also to share stories from other parents who have gone through or are going through their own struggles. If you want to share your story, please go to the blog for more information. I would love to help you tell it! I hope to develop a community of people who can support each other, as well as help educate people.
