Friend’s Letter to Birth Mom Presents Adoption, Offers Support

A Birthmothers Friend learned that a woman was considering abortion. She  took the time to write the pregnant woman this letter and was matched with the birth mom as her Friend.

Dear Anna,

I’m so glad you were able to share with me about your pregnancy. Thank you for the privilege of being your friend and for trusting me with your news. While there is much I don’t know about your circumstances and your feelings, I know two things for certain:

  1. God has a purpose for every event in our lives
  2. The child you carry has a purpose for his life – and a purpose in others’ lives

woman writing letterYou may fear the outcome of your pregnancy. You may not think you will be able to care for this precious life. But maybe the purpose for your pregnancy is to bring you closer to God. Maybe the purpose for your child is to become someone’s son or daughter – and grow into a doctor, construction worker, business owner, lawyer, teacher or pastor.

You may think abortion is an easy fix. But that fix could thwart the powerful purpose for this child. Why not adoption instead?

Your child has a purpose.  The choice for it to be fulfilled is in your hands. This is what God wants you to know:

“I created your child’s inmost being; I knit your child together in your womb. Your child is fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:13-14).

The life of a human being is worth every effort to allow it to be born.

I love you and I stand with you,
