So I never really like to get into heated debates about certain topics, but there is one topic that I am very passioniate about, and that is abortion. I can remember years and years ago my mother buying some earrings that were the actual size of a 10 week old (is that right, mom?) baby. At the time I know I didn't fully comprehend why my mom loved and wore these earrings, I can just remember thinking that they were amazing and I couldn't believe anyone had feet that little! Now I know that she wore them to represent to everyone that she was pro-life. As the years passed and I began to fully understand what exactly that pair of little feet earrings represented, it was never a question about which side I should choose. Pro-life or pro-choice? As I began having children of my own, and suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage, my thoughts and feelings on abortion became even stronger. I can remember hearing and seeing Jackson's heartbeat at 7 weeks, and it was honestly one of the most amazing sounds ever. (Of course the same is true with Ansley and Elsie's!) There was a baby, alive, inside of me and depended on me to keep it safe. How amazing is that?
