At our house, we have been struggling with some situations that have left us mourning the loss of an unborn baby.
A few weeks ago, I shared with you all the news that I was going to be another grandma, that my stepson and his wife (who were living with us) were expecting a baby in May.
Since that time, "his wife" decided that she did not want to be married anymore and just up and left one day, traveling back to Indiana to be with her family and ex-boyfriend(s). We really didn't understand this and begged her to stay and to come back. Lots of lies were brought to light that left Kyle and us just plain shocked. This was difficult enough.
But then she had to throw something even bigger into the fire. She decided that she didn't want the baby. She also decided that she didn't want Kyle to have it either. Instead she made the decision to have an abortion. She was 16 weeks pregnant! No amount of begging, pleading, trying to make her understand that what she would be doing was just plain murder, nothing we could say or do would change her mind.
Yesterday her family drove her to Chicago (the only place that will do late term abortions) and she had
the baby aborted. We are all really sad and do not understand why anyone would do such a thing especially when that baby was wanted by the father and by grandparents. Unfortunately, father's don't have any rights to unborn children.
We are in mourning over the loss of this precious baby that had fingers and toes and heartbeat. The only thing that is getting us through is our faith in knowing that this child is in Gods hands and that we will see this baby someday.
I am also very thankful and happy that it is Christmas time. Where the spirit of Christmas can enter our home and help to heal our hearts.
