"We didn't know how to go on the next six months, knowing our baby would die. We felt Caroline moving so much and couldn't understand why every sonogram brought more bad news. We weren't going to get to decorate a nursery or have a baby shower. All of our closest friends were pregnant with healthy babies, and it was hard not to get angry with God. In the beginning, we thought it would be easiest if Caroline passed on her own. She was a fighter though. We began to get excited to meet her, and even terrified that she would be born still. We felt incredibly guilty for those prior emotions. Guilt can be more devastating than loss sometimes and we struggled.

Along the way, we started to experience a true intimacy with the Lord. We prayed like never before. We worshipped like we've never worshipped before. We put our trust in Him and felt Him guiding us. We clung to James 1:2-3 where it says to 'consider it pure joy when you face trials of many kinds because you know the testing of your faith produces perseverance.' We came to realize that we wanted the purpose of Caroline's life to be to glorify God. Yet, we still struggled through pain and confusion some days.

It was a battle, but it was one that we did not fight alone. God held our hands throughout each mountain and each dark valley. He armed us with the most loving and supportive family and friends. We learned what faith really means.

Then, May 4, 2017 arrived. Caroline gave us the easiest labor and delivery possible. The moment we saw Caroline and held her in our arms, we knew it was all worth it. She was beautiful & perfect to us. She lived for 2 hours & 25 minutes & we loved her every minute of her life. She made me a momma & made Matt the most loving father. She changed us & so many around us. She brought us closer to God.

We didn't know what it really meant to stand for life before Caroline. Now we know the time we had with Caroline was the greatest joy of our lives. The nine months before were a precious gift despite all of its difficulties. Caroline's life was a blessing from God. All life is a blessing from God. Today, we say that we Stand For Life & always will." - Elaine & Matt #StandforLIFE

.@realDonaldTrump is the most #prolife president of our lifetime. Last night, I addressed @SACornerstone Church in San Antonio on the #abortion issue. To learn more about the eugenics movement—which was developed by the American Left and which later inspired the Nazis—click the link in my profile to pre-order your copy of "The Big Lie" today.

Many individuals often criticize me for supporting our President Donald Trump, but even they know I'm not a hardcore Trump supporter who'll blindly applaud at every single thing he does. What Trump did to enable the Boy Scouts to boo former President Barack Obama was unacceptable, especially considering Obama was a Boy Scout himself. Such an act was completely unpresidential and immoral, and Trump should consider rethinking his anti-Obama stance. If the roles were reversed, Obama wouldn't have done such a thing, considering how much class he has at the person level. Whether you like or dislike Obama as a president - I'm sure you all can agree this was uncalled for and Trump should know better. I personally believe Trump is decent as a president, but he's got some growing up to do. Any thoughts?

"At 20 years old I dropped out of college and was partying all the time. I found out I was pregnant with a guy I had just met.

Everyone in my family kept telling me to "take care of it" and told me I wasn't ready, but from the moment I found out I was pregnant everything changed.

I instantly changed.

I knew I had to do better. I got clean, his father and I got married (hoping for the best) and now six years later I'm finishing a masters in nursing and we have two more children.

Plus we're still married and happy. Deciding to keep the baby is the best decision I ever made. He didn't burden my life, he encouraged me to make it better."


From dangerous bills heard over the weekend (check link in profile for more info) to last week's anti-#abortion legislation and the infamous #transgender "bathroom bill", today's the day many attempts to deny Texans of their rights will make it to the Senate floor.

You know what that means: #RESIST! Let's all show up in the Senate Gallery however long and often we're able today. And for those who can't come in person: please make these 5 calls! I know I will.

Made this.
I'm sure inly some will get it and most will be triggered.
But I laughed.

"The initial journey towards pregnancy for my wife and I was a dark valley.
⠀ ⠀
We figured pregnancy would be a given, as we were both healthy individuals without any known risks. The month-to-month when dealing with infertility is quite taxing on your emotions. After numerous tests, treatment, and surgery, Laura was pregnant.
⠀ ⠀
She got pregnant during the least likely time, as her grandmother passed away just weeks prior to us learning of the pregnancy. Our first daughter, Corine, was born on October 15, 2015 and shares the same name as her late great-grandmother.
⠀ ⠀
Life has a funny way of surprising you. I think we both assumed that getting pregnant again after Corine would be another journey similar to our first experience. We were not even trying to get pregnant, so I was shocked when I came home to my daughter wearing a ‘big sister’ shirt. It was an even bigger shock when the baby’s arrival was on Corine’s birthday!
⠀ ⠀
We had a scare about 12 weeks in and spent a long 7 hours in the ER waiting and praying that the baby was ok. It is an exhausting experience to live through when you are completely in the dark.
⠀ ⠀
Laura had a subchorionic hemorrhage that increased the risk for miscarriage. The bleeding continued and we went on with everyday life. During her 22 week sonogram, the hemorrhage appeared to have resolved and we were back to a normal pregnancy, or so it would seem. The very next day, God had other plans. Jane Rachel was born suddenly, and unexpectedly at 23 weeks and 3 days on June 21, 2017.
⠀ ⠀
What an eye opening experience for me this all was. My daughter was perfectly formed at 23 weeks. Every detail was unique and precious.  Her body at 23 weeks was wonderfully & beautifully made. I loved her through and through.
⠀ ⠀
Our time in the NICU was not a roller coaster like we had been told, but just one large up, and then a swift and steady decline. Jane’s six short days on earth have forever changed me. I’m heartbroken, but I know I will see my daughter again one day. I miss her more than words can express, but I’m grateful that Christ redeems all things and makes them new. Jane Rachel, we will meet again." - Thomas #StandforLIFE
