who came to be

This is an amazing video because it talks about EVERYONE involved when a baby is adopted.

The birth mother
The advocates for life
The family friends
The adoptive parents
The baby.

So often it's easy to completely forget the birth mother in all of this. And I love that this adoptive family didn't. They got to know her well and to this day they value her. For the sacrifice she made. For the bold and scary choice she made to carry a child full term that she didn't want and couldn't parent. For the gift she gave them - their daughter, Chapel.

It's amazing to see in living colour, what comes to be (or rather, WHO comes to be) when a woman bravely declines abortion and chooses life for her child. Watch and be moved...
