Heartbreaking

1.3 million abortions are performed each year.

13,000 of those abortions are on babies 21 weeks and OLDER.

These statistics are from the United States alone.

Hi, I found you through The Hoyt Family's blog. She mentioned Treyson's Purpose on her prayer requests. I just want to say that I commend you for what you are doing. I have not had children, and have complications that may make it difficult, and have considered adoption. It saddens me to think of all the precious children I could have adopted if the mothers would have kept them. I should have an older sibling. My mother was raped at the age of 18 (36 years ago) and didn't know where to go...so she had an abortion. (This is something I'm allowed to share) She is very pro-life now...knowing how much an abortion hurts emotionally and spiritually...even after 36 years. I just wonder what her life (and mine) would be like if she had had an organization like this back then. I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for this cause!

Here's a thought about a Scripture for Treyson's Purpose.

FOR FROM HIM EVERYTHING COMES, THROUGH HIM EVERYTHING LIVES, AND FOR HIM EVERYTHING EXISTS. GLORY TO HIM FOREVER! ROMANS 11:36

I want to reiterate that I was given permission by my mother to share that story. She told me of her experiences when I was a teenager...in case I ever found myself in similar circumstances she wanted me to know that I had somewhere to turn. She also shared it with me in hopes that if faced with this situation I would make a different decision...knowing how hard it truly is to deal with.

I just ran across your blog from the One More Day blog...Just wanted to encourage you on your efforts to create Treyson's Purpose. What a beautiful way to remember your precious baby. May the Lord guide you every step of the way. My family has been blessed with a ministry we formed after the loss of three of our children (twin daughters Faith and Grace and a newborn son, Thomas). We offer bereavement materials and support to mothers and families who lose a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. We are also a Christian, non-profit organization. I would love to share our family's journey with you...You can visit our blog:
