Why is everyone shocked at the harvesting of babies organs?

Disgusted yes? Horrified yes? But, shocked? No, I am not.

In January 1999, Life Site News posted a article by Celeste McGovern called, Secrets of the Dead-Baby Industry

Price list for babies livers

Aborted fetuses are being dissected alive, harvested and SOLD in pieces to fuel a vast research enterprise.

Take a peak at the for profit business Stem Express and you can see the order form for a liver and other organs. In their own words,

“StemExpress is a multi-million dollar company that supplies human blood, tissue products, primary cells and other clinical specimens to biomedical researchers around the world to fuel regenerative medicine and translational research. Founded in 2010, we offer the largest variety of raw material in the industry, as well as fresh, fixed and cryopreserved human primary cells.”

Same argument for organs harvested from people pronounced, “Brain Dead”

Order form for baby partsWell if they are already dead, then why bury the parts in the grave, let them be used to help someone else.

How altruistic it sounds but in BOTH cases the life of someone is taken in order to donate their organs and tissues.

Whenever you read a story about a person “donating” an unpaired major organ, the “donor” has to be killed. Major organs like the heart and liver are not vital or can NOT be used when “harvested” from a cadaver.

The person has to be alive with a living, beating heart circulating blood throughout the body in order to keep the other major organs alive.

There are no hearts, livers, pancreases, kidneys that are harvested from truly dead individuals. That person must be “kept alive” until his organs are harvested.

The last organ taken is the heart because that is what kills the “donor.”

You can’t live without a heart.

Pro-life

Personally I have been active in the pro-life movement for 40 years. I have picked Planned Parenthood, stood with Operation Rescue, counseled  woman in a Pregnancy Counseling Center, and helped facilitate an adoption.

Someone told me recently my name was still on a tree outside Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood in Ann Arbor, Missy Caulk do NOT trespass.

However, before I was active in the pro-life movement  I had an abortion. It was around the time abortion in America became legal. It was before I KNEW it was a baby and NOT a blob of tissue. I sinned. But, God forgave me when I understood and could repent of what I had done. I know I will meet my child in heaven one day.

Selling organs from a baby to a adult severely injured person is big business

Someone asked me once what I hoped to get out of this blog and my response was to help save lives from birth to natural death.  To help educate the masses who don’t understand that “brain death” is a legal fiction, made up to justify killing of people who are severely injured but not DEAD.

For you created my inmost being;

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalms 139:13

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

    your works are wonderful,

    I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

My frame was not hidden from you

    when I was made in the secret place  Psalm 139:15

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139:16

There is no sin too big that can not be forgiven. If you have had an abortion God can and will forgive you IF you ask. I think most people know this and the harder thing to do is to forgive yourself. God does not want you to go through life punishing yourself for your abortion or for any other wrong you have done. The blood shed on the cross is powerful to heal. Jesus paid the price for our sin, so we don’t have to.

These are not blobs of tissue, they are babies who have a heartbeat and a brain. The brain and spinal cord begins to form at 5 weeks or 3 weeks AFTER conception. (Mayo Clinic)

If you watch the video produced by The Center of Medical Progress the brain of the baby is highly desirable. The doctors performing try to turn the baby’s head so they don’t crush it. I found this interesting since doctor’s are so quick to pronounce someone “brain-dead.”

The law on selling any organs

May God use the national exposure to change hearts and laws across the nation.

 

Independence Day

John Adams quote Last night my children and I started watching the HBO Special on John Adams. It was my second time to see it and I believe it is always good to refresh our minds on the price paid and the principles that led to the founding of our nation. 

The price is still being paid today as we continue to send our young men and women to fight for our freedom and liberty both home and abroad.

Today most of politician’s and most of American’s refer to America as a democracy; yet it was the one issue that our Founding Fathers were adamant about is that the United States was a Republic and NOT a Democracy.

There is NOWHERE  in our Constitution or Bill of Rights that uses the word Democracy. Oh, you learned it in your school books, we all did. Today when we hear politicians and TV anchorman speak they NEVER use the word Republic only a Democracy. 

I have always wanted to ask people in power and those in authority to explain the difference and watch many of them stutter. 

Why is it important to know the difference?

The following quote attributed to Professor Alexander Fraser Tyler who was writing back when America was still a colony:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of Government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury with a result that a democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a Dictatorship. 

Article 4 Section 4 of our Constitution guarantees to every state in the Union a Republican form of government.

Heroes of History by Janet and Geoff BengeThirty-eight years after the Declaration of Independence was written, John Adams warned,

 “A democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy that didn’t commit suicide.”

Can you name one that democracy that has lasted?

Are we headed that way?

The progression of a democracy, where do you think America is?

From Bondage to Spiritual Faith

From Spiritual Faith to Great Courage

From Great Courage to Liberty

From Liberty to Abundance

From Abundance to Complacency

                                          From Complacency to Apathy

                                                  From Apathy to Dependency

                                                          From Dependency back to Bondage 

The Declaration of Independence contains the principles of a Republican form of government. All men are created equal with certain unalienable rights that governments are formed by men to secure these rights and that governments derive their power from the consent of the governed.

The essence a Republic is the rule of law. This law is common law and scientific law. It does not change.

Our founders knew history, and they understood this cycle. They knew the natural course for governments was to grow bigger and more powerful. They also knew the more powerful the government, the weaker its people. They wrote a constitution that prevented the unbridled growth of the national government.

As James Madison wrote in Federalist Paper #45, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined and will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.

The Pledge of Allegiance starts out, “I pledge allegiance to the Flag, and to the Republic for which it stands,  one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

In the strictest sense of the word, the system of government established by the Constitution was never intended to be a “democracy.”

This is evident not only in the wording of the Pledge of Allegiance but in the Constitution itself which declares that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government” (Article IV, Section 4).

Watching John Adams last night allowed me to see once again how many times the colonist tried to address the issue’s that King George was imposing on them by limiting their freedom. (I had to wonder what would have happened IF he had been more understanding of the colonists desire to be heard and responded with inclusion.)

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Unalienable Rights

Unalienable rights are given by God, it is a uniquely American philosophy. It teaches that Man, the individual is endowed at birth with rights that are unalienable because they are given by God.

The Right to Life

The Right for Liberty

The Right to the pursuit of happiness

To list ALL the rights of the individual that flow from those three would add up to all of man’s freedom. Suffice it to say, we have seen many of those assumed rights like parental rights taken away daily.

Parental Rights

To see children being taken from loving families because the government doesn’t like your views on raising your kids, educating them the way you see fit, choosing to vaccinate or not, disagreeing and asking for a second medical opinion and having your kids medically kidnapped IS a violation of our UNALIENABLE rights.

Justina protest

We must get back to what Thomas Jefferson said, as he admonished Supreme Court Justice William Johnson:

“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson, Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies, From the papers of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, editor (Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1830), Vol IV, p. 373, to Judge William Johnson on June 12 1823.

Think how much better that would be.

The Declaration and The Colonists grievances

I have copied our Declaration and the grievances the colonist did their best to address with King George for your review.

The Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Two things, teach your kids…they aren’t learning this is public schools.

Second, how do you feel our freedoms and liberties are being violated today, leave in the comments.

His Story and His Truth is marching on.

Praying for Kidnapped Children

How much do you pray? Or a better way to ask this is who and how and what do you pray for or about?  I don’t really expect an answer but lately my heart has been drawn to pray for medically kidnapped children.

In fact, most of my prayers of late bring me to tears whether I cry driving down the road to Ann Arbor real estate appointments or before I go to sleep. I weep for all the pain that people are going through. Sometimes I don’t really know HOW to pray because I don’t know all the details of everything people have asked for in their prayer requests.

The scripture that comes to mind, “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes FOR us with groanings to deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27

A few years ago I started to see a multitude of prayer requests on Facebook, (my favorite social network). I caught myself saying I was praying or would pray and I was NOT. That still small voice spoke to me, “you hypocrite”.

So I stopped saying, “praying for you”, UNLESS I was.

 

Justina PelletierMedical Kidnapping

Fourteen months ago I found a story about Justina Pelletier on Facebook and joined that group and twitter feeds, made calls to the Gov of Mass and DCF, prayed, and cried a lot.  I couldn’t fathom the travesty of justice this precious child went through. Boy were my eyes opened. Justina’s case became a springboard for me to see what was really going on out there with our Foster Care and Child Protection Services.

Now not a day go by that I don’t hear of  children being taken from their parents for medical reasons. Not only children being medically kidnaped but taken for frivolous reason from loving homes. I started to ask, how can this be happening?

Some of situations that I have been praying for the last year that are breaking my heart are:

isaiah Ryder and mom MIchelle

 

Isiah Rider Is a 17-year-old Missouri resident who was taken away from his mother at the age of 16 by Illinois child protective services – DCFS – while in Lurie Children’s Hospital for medical treatment. All his mom wanted was a second opinion and they were referred to a different hospital in ILL because the hospital in Missouri couldn’t find a cure for his pain.

 

 

The Ringo family from Bellingham, WA who have a more holistic in their approach to life and health, preferring natural alternatives, like herbs and diet changes, to medicinal treatments.

stanley family The Stanley Family in Arkansas had and continue to have their seven homeschooled children in foster care because they too lived a holistic lifestyle and the dad supposedly used a substance not approved by the FDA. The children never took it and they had no idea there was a controversary on MMS. Now what is really weird to me, as one of my friends here in Michigan has Lyme disease, and the same day I found the Stanley’s story, my friend called and asked me if I had ever heard of MMS.

I said no I had not.  She told me her MD, (notice I said MD had prescribed it for her. I had just texted her back after doing some quick research on it and told her it seemed fine to me if taken as prescribed.

Since then I have another friend in another state who informed me her MD had prescribed it to her. So NOW the Stanley’s have lost custody of their kids over a substance that is being prescribed by MD’s? The Stanley’s said they would get rid of it as the dad had only tried it and they used it for their garden.

I don’t get it.

burns family

Recently a couple who live in Brighton,MI (right down the road from me)  is going through a tragic situation where the father was convicted of abusing his 11-week old daughter. Joshua and Brenda Burns, who waited 7 years to have their baby, she being a nurse at my local hospital and him a pilot with Delta because the baby Naomi slipped off her daddy’s lap and he caught her with his hand. That is called negligence for protecting their baby…catching her before she hit her head on the coffee table.

Josh is to be sentenced this week, their pastor set up a web-site for them, the prosecution could find no one to testify against Josh’s character in all of Brighton, MI? Yet now DCF is harassing the mother, who was cleared.

I sure an glad my children are grown, Jamie was so accident prone we nicknamed him Rambo Jamo Pup. How can this be happening?

Verosa family

 

Another tragic case, that I have been praying for and reached out to NotDeadYet is the is the Verzosa Family of Kissimmee, Florida. So what was the Verosa families crimes?

The mother has a slight intellectual disability. (Whatever that is…) So now their 6 children are in foster care and the parents are devastated. If the mom needs support, get her some help. DON’T take her children away. Yes, this situation has brought me to tears many nights now.

 

I could literally go into many cases in the State of Arizona, which appears to be making money off these kids being taken from their families, you would not believe it. But I will mention only one family in AZ that I have been praying for and that is Kayla and Hannah Diegel. 

Dingle sisters

My plan in the next few weeks is to post more on my thoughts of WHY this is happening. What is systemically wrong with DCF’s?  WHY they are taking more children from loving families who are just trying to get help for their children who have medical issues.

There are families having kids taken away for FRIVOLOUS reasons. (home-schooling, not vaccinating, seeking a second medical opinion, diaper rash, home-births, not giving psychotropic drugs, two doctors disagreeing on a diagnosis for their children and on and on.

Please, subscribe by email on the right column if you want to follow along and find out how this can be happening in our nation. Mainly join me in praying for these families IF you are moved as have been. 

A few nights ago I was standing in the kitchen and started telling Christa and Allyssa about the family in Brighton and I just completely broke down. They don’t understand HOW I can be so broken up over this family with everything we as a family have gone through.

Hey, I don’t either!

***Full disclosure, I am not against DCF, CPS or Social Workers (my degree is in social work) and I know they are overworked and understaffed.  I know there are very dedicated one’s who truly want to help protect abused children. (physically, sexually, emotionally) My advocacy is that systemic changes must be changed and changed quickly***

New update, read how Judge Whelan in San Diego County ruled against CPS for taking children and violating many laws. I am still reading his entire ruling but good case law present here. This is getting too long, I will post more later.

The Reality of Drug Addiction

This is a  Post by DrMike Gramps Stollings. He is the father of Jeramie Stollings who died earlier this week from a drug overdose.
It has been shared on Facebook over 22,000 times. I have left it un-edited or corrected.
Mike Stollings son dead from overdose lets take another look at how fun drugs are…………… this is my son about an hour after the funeral home got him late monday afternoon. when he died he had been bleeding out of his ears and had blood in his hair and foam in his mouth. they were kind enough to clean him before we got there. his body was ice cold from being kept in a refrigerator. my cold dead son. father of a 10 month boy. grandson to 3 living grand parents. step-brother to 2. half brother to 3 son to 2 living parents and a step parent that helped raise him since he was a young child. all completely devastated. well little asher is too young to know what is going on but will live his life wondering what it would be like to know his dad. as many of you know jeramie was pretty open about his relationship with LSD. he was a little more quiet about his love for Dextromethorphan. despite the begging and pleading from me and many others in his family he craved the trip and was obsessed about it…………look i know that not everybody that takes drugs is going to die from it. but many do. jeramie thought he had it under control. he thought he was smarter than the drug and had more control than the drug. now he is in a refrigerator in a funeral home in englewood. now people are in transit from all across this country to say their final goodbye’s. now my family has to spend over $5000 in funeral expenses. now i will never be able to hike with him or ride dirt bikes with him. he will never be able to take his son camping………….those of you that use just for a little fun here and there. you don’t have to use but you like to party a little. think for a second about how there are those around you with larger mental issues. like jeramie, he was carrying some mental baggage that even i can’t comprehend. by partying with these people you encourage them and enable them to do it to use drugs as an escape. that is the every last thing people like this need. these people need actual help. these people need encouragement to heal in healthy ways. they need to feel genuine love and uplifting encouragement not encouragement to get high again. think about the influence you have on these people. think about the path of destruction being left behind…….people, learn from this. help make something positive from this tragedy. walk away from this lifestyle. find someone that loves you and ask them for help. don’t let this become you. don’t do this to your family. use our pain and anguish. learn from it. turn to someone you love. get help. if you do not have some you think you can turn to message me. i’ll do all in my power to help you. it’s not too late to save yourself and your family from repeating this horror. believe me when i say you do not want to experience this and you do not want your loved ones to have to experience this anguish.
In a live news report on WHIO, his father shared the reason he spoke our about about his son,”I did it out of grief and guilt, and a feeling that it is his fault his son is dead.”“I’ll spend the rest of my days on this earth racking my brain trying to figure out what I should have done differently,” he said.

Jeramie stollings Over dose a year ago.The reporter said, the photos have been reported to Facebook.

Let’s get real

The media will not report on drug overdoses. I am sure they are trying to protect the privacy of families on the cause of death during their time of horrible grief.

But, what if families gave their permission?

 

What if the reality of what how drugs harm you was more widespread?

Living in Saline I know several families that have lost children to drugs. Heroin is an epidemic in Saline, Washtenaw County, Michigan and nation.

The same thing happens when reporting on brain death. You NEVER read about it in the U.S. Most of my success stories written about on this blog are from European Countries as they will use the term. I have learned to read the paper like this: Accident happened on Friday, pronounced dead on Monday or approximately 3 days later, brain dead.

I respect his parents for coming forward to share about their son’s death as a result of drug abuse. I know it was hard, but his mother stated she has been comforted by the people who have shared their stories and the encouragement they have received.

Their reason for doing so was to expose what is the reality of death by overdose. The post has gone viral with over 22,000 shares. It has hit a nerve with people. They are very courageous people.

I will pray for them that they will be comforted. I will pray for them that they will not blame themselves.

As they say in Al-Anon, “you didn’t cause it, you can’t control it and you can’t cure it.”

Addiction is a disease.

As his dad said, his son thought he had it under control. He did not. No one does.

 

***Jeramie’s father gave permission to post far and wide and that is why I am sharing.***

Happy Birthday Justina Pelletier !

Justina Pelletiers Birthday

Dear Justina,

I know you wanted to spend your  “Sweet 16” birthday at home.  I want you to know how sorry I am that this is not going to happen.

Sweet girl, you are not alone and I hope you know that. Thousands of people are standing with you and praying that this nightmare will soon be over.  Soon you will be home in your pink bedroom with your stuffed animals and all your family. Justina and her sisters

Many times in this journey of our  life on earth we don’t understand why things happen to us. I know I have asked why hundreds of times the last three years as my son died from injuries in an auto accident, my granddaughter who was 13 weeks old, died one month later and then my husband of 35 years last summer.

Justina it is OK to ask, “Why”?

All of us who have gotten to know you through your loving family have asked “why”.

Justina, it is during these times of suffering that we reach out and cling to the ONE who knows everything from beginning to end. The ONE who loves you and who will never leave you or forsake you, the ONE who loves you and created you.

Someday, you and your family will be vindicated because truth always wins out. You are blessed to have a family that is fighting this horrible system that has allowed this to happen to you and hundreds of other kids taken from loving homes.

Think about this, God chose you and your family to fight this battle for hundreds of children in your same situation. Now I know it doesn’t “feel” particularly good now, but God is using you to shine a light and change this injustice done to children and their families throughout our culture.

Justina you are a beautiful young lady, and an inspiration to multitudes of people across the nation and world.

I know you don’t realize that now.

Someday you will.

Someday we will all understand “why”.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

God bless you on your Sweet 16th Birthday.
