"This past April, I watched these precious feet enter this world. I didn't have any expectations on my involvement for his birth, but as our birthmother and I got to know one another over the month, she realized how important birth is to me. She let me know that I could be as much a part of it as I was comfortable.

We arrived at the hospital at the same time, and she gifted me the honor of being by her side for the 18 hours that followed. I encouraged and coached her through her labor. It was emotional, and exhausting, and beautifully redeeming. And then... and then these precious feet were earth side, and through a river of tears, I rejoiced alongside the woman who courageously labored him into this world to then pass him on to me.

I'm still processing all that has happened in the past several months: the grace extended to us not only in our son but the small, intricate details of his entire story. The beauty that came from this broken situation, and showed all of us the power of respect and love. The way our journey turned out far differently than I ever expected, but far more beautiful than I could have imagined. We believe our birth mother's yes to life was a miracle. And we thank God everyday for the courage it took for her to go through all she did." - Holly #StandforLIFE

#happiness #happymommy #mothersday #shoutyourabortion Thanks @weareultraviolet for your amazing op-ed honoring mothers who have had abortions on Mother's Day.

Abortions are normal to talk about. When we shut it out we also shut out access, availability and the freedom to make the choices we need to make about our bodies. #shoutyourabortion #omgthatpocket !

I’ve been hearing that the Forty Days for Life folks are out and about right now, so I decided to bust out my favorite tshirt. #shoutyourabortion #normalizeabortion @shoutyourabortion
If you don’t believe in abortion, don’t get one, but keep it safe, legal and accessible for the rest of us.

"I was born into a life filled with drugs and alcohol. Instead of a childhood filled with tutus, tea parties, and happy memories, I was tossed from home to home with my siblings because my biological mom couldn't get it together. I grew up wishing I was never born. At 15 years old, I was at the lowest point of my life... BUT God.

A miracle brought me to a foster home of parents who knew Jesus. I was a hard teen who deep down, just wanted to be loved. I was so used to being placed in home after home, that I didn't even know what love was. I knew that partying and boys wouldn't fulfill me, but what else would? These parents changed all that. They fought for me. I would fight and kick and scream and push the limits… but they never gave up. Not once. They chased me down when I ran, they held me when I cried; they were a living, breathing example of Jesus. And it worked. They remained steadfast and within six months I was spiritually adopted. God came in and changed my whole life. Just a few months later I was physically adopted, and given a new name. I was shown that I was worthy of love. I was worthy of a family - a functional, loving, real life family. They went on to adopt eight more kids. We aren't perfect. We have baggage. But we're family. 11 years later, and I can't imagine my life any differently!

I am grateful that my biological mother chose life. Because of that, I was able to be adopted by two fantastic parents... because of that, I married an amazing man, who loves Jesus and others. Because she chose life, I have three amazing children who I pray come to know Jesus themselves." - Shawna #StandforLIFE

Yesterday I saw someone on IG punishing themselves for not being 175 pounds...by forcing themselves to wear “granny panties” as punishment (#pantyprobation) till they hit their goal.
Um, first of all, wearing comfortable underwear isn’t a real punishment. I’d love for all of you to wear what you want, panties or no, wherever you are with your body BECAUSE life is too short to be uncomfortable and to self-punish over NUMBERS.

We haven’t done one of these in a while, but it’s time for #shoutyourweight (absolutely inspired by the lovely @thelindywest and #shoutyourabortion). I am currently around 293 pounds. Since moving to LA I’ve been from 321 all the way to 250. After a particularly emotionally grueling couple of years, this is where my body is. No, I don’t have plans to lose more weight. No, I wasn’t miserable at 321 and life wasn’t magically perfect at 250.
Yes, I’ve been going on more walks and eating more veggies because it makes me feel stronger. Whether my body changes or not because of it...not the goal.

Whether you know your numbers or not, a scale isn’t going to tell you when it’s okay to start living.
So, stop playing these little games hoping for a win. Live.

@codziennikfeministyczny o tym, jak nasze prawa łamie Poczta Polska: "Od końca października wszystkie przesyłki zawierające zestawy leków służących do wykonania aborcji farmakologicznej, jak i tabletki antykoncepcji awaryjnej, wysyłane przez organizacje pomagające kobietom w naszym kraju, nie zostały dostarczone osobom, które ich potrzebują. Bezprawne zaprzestanie rejestracji przesyłek zbiegło się z informacją o wytycznych dla prokuratorów sugerowanych przez Ordo Iuris i dotyczących wyciągania konsekwencji prawnych w stosunku do osób pomagających w wykonaniu aborcji poza Polską. Przypadek?" / Udostępniajmy oświadczenie, nagłaśniajmy sprawę – fanatycy nie odpuszczają...

People matter and stories should be heard. This year more than ever, our culture gets so caught up in social media instead of being present.

As families and friends gather later this week, we want to encourage you to be present, unplug from social media, and dig deep in relationships with those that sit around your table.

"I've been a mom for 11 years today. I was a parent for 10 months & now i’ve been a birth mom ever since placement.

Even just saying 'mom' without adding 'birth' to the front of it feels weird most of the time. Since a lot of people don't understand much surrounding adoption, they don’t see me as a mom.
I don’t talk about my grief much, to anyone, but it hurts all the time. Even when I'm having good days & feeling joyous, it still hurts.

I don’t know if I would feel selfish if I spoke out loud about how much it hurts me to be a birth mom. My daughter is doing so well, her family is such a blessing, and I have a good life. Saying the 'negatives' out loud might not come across how I want it to. I don’t need anyone to feel sorry for me, I don’t even feel sorry for me.
I feel grateful to be on this journey. I feel grateful that my daughter is so loved by so many wonderful people. So, to talk about the hurt just doesn’t happen.

It’s only been a year since I finally met other birth moms, other woman who truly get a lot of the feelings that I feel regularly. But, even that’s heavy. There just are not many resources for birth parents and I hope to help change that one day. I want to change the culture. I want people to understand that birth moms can feel both happy & sad at the same. To feel grateful, yet have a weight of grief as well.

It’s not fair to assume or tell me that I should only be one or the other. I don’t even believe in 'negative' feelings anymore. What I feel is what I feel & if people understood the depth & magnitude of what being a birth mom is like, they wouldn’t judge so hard.

I am eternally grateful to be blessed with such a beautiful daughter, her amazing parents & family, this journey we get to live. I love her so much and my own heartache would never make me regret the most important decision I’ve ever made. What a beautiful life.” - Lyz #standforlife

(Part 2 of 2) "A night of partying turned into a night I was taken advantage of. Little did I know, it was on the same night a woman was praying for a birth mom and her child.

How could I be pregnant?
This was not part of my plan.
I was in dental hygiene school. I didn’t have a boyfriend, I wasn’t married and I didn’t sleep around.

Abortion was suggested to me three times. The first was by the birth father when I told him I was pregnant, then by the nurse at the student health center who confirmed my pregnancy, and then finally by a doctor at my first appointment.

I was not ready to raise a child by myself. I loved this baby already and knew I would not be able to give them a life that they deserved. I chose adoption. My prayer for my baby was that they would have two parents who loved them.

In April I met the parents of my baby. I knew from the moment we met that God was writing a beautiful story.

The months, weeks, and days leading up to delivery were a swirl of emotion. I was excited Kenny and Kimberly were going to be welcoming a daughter into their life, I was scared to go through childbirth, I was sad to think of not getting to feel her kick anymore and not getting talk to her. But above all, I felt peace. Peace that only Jesus could provide.

Our time in the hospital was bittersweet. As I watched my family, along with Kenny and Kimberly meet her, I saw how she would be loved by two families.

When I saw her face I couldn’t help but cry. I had never seen anything so precious. As I kissed her little forehead goodbye, I told her I loved her.
Words cannot adequately describe what this last year has brought. I just know that God had a plan, even when I did not.

There are hard days. Days when I miss her. Days when I cry. But there is never a day I regret my decision of choosing life and choosing adoption.

I am a birth mom. I am not ashamed. I am brave. I want to be a voice for birth moms, for adoption and what adoption can be. And mostly, I want Jesus to be known and glorified through my story." - Emilie #StandforLIFE
