Sanctity of Life!

Each year in January, there is a day dedicated to the "Sanctity of Human Life." In honor of this very special day, I write this blog.  Believing that ALL life is created in the image of God.
Genesis 1:27
 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

".....Precious in His sight, Jesus loves the children of the world!"

Remember singing the familiar children's song?  I've thought of that song often over the last several months.  One reason would probably be because of the great privilege we're getting in adding another culture into our multi-racial family.   Another could be because our newest little girl will be considered on paperwork and to some as "special needs." 

Like many other countries, China's "waiting children" list is HUGE!  These orphaned children are often abandon because of having various special needs.  And before you gasp and think that's awful, please think about the  fact that not so very many decades ago, the United States  had institutions filled with special need babies and children that were deemed "not worthy" to live in a family setting. Physicians even encouraging parents of these children to consider putting them into an institutional environment.

When asked what kind of special needs, our daughter will have, the answer at the moment of this post  is "we're not sure?!"  We've been praying since we started this journey that God will make it abundantly clear who He wants us to adopt!  In faith, we're excited about who this little one will be and what particular "special need" we will be blessed with learning more about.

Recently, our family has been amazed by the testimony of one particular man, made in the image of God without arms or legs.  I urge you to take just a few minutes (link below)and hear what he has to say!!  How could we not think that ALL LIFE IS SACRED and made in GOD's image??

If, like our family, you are compelled to hear more from this amazing man of God you can "google him. "Nick Vujicic"

Psalm 139:13-14
For you created my inmost being;you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
