Baby saved in Tennessee helps save another in Baltimore.
We were pleased to work with CBR Maryland to bring GAP to the Baltimore Inner Harbor earlier in May. We know of one baby saved. Here’s the story, from Leslie Sneddon of CBR Maine!
Please comment: Other than a college campus and a downtown harbor, where do you suggest we take the GAP project? Please comment!
Baby Saved at the Baltimore Inner Harbor
I watched as she avoided the display, choosing to walk as far away as possible from the picture. But the Lord directed her steps and now she was face to face with the signs. I approached and asked her impression of the pictures.
“Oh God, that is disgusting,” she declared. “Is that an abortion?” We moved slowly down to the sign entitled “Things you can do with an unplanned baby.” This panel features a baby saved the first time GAP was done at the University of Tennessee.
“This baby pictured in the middle was saved from abortion because the mother decided against abortion after seeing these pictures. She gave the baby up for adoption,” I explained.
“I don’t think I could do that … give it up for adoption, that is.” she said. “I mean, if I could see my baby, I would want to keep and really love it. That’s for sure, but I can’t afford to take care of it. I have no job, no money.”
“Are you pregnant right now?” I asked.
“Lord make me an instrument of Your Peace.” That’s all I could think at that moment. I spoke of my own abortions and about the hurt that never goes away. I told her about the joy and the challenges that come with children. I called for reinforcements. Kurt Linnemann (CBR Maryland) and Jane Bullington (CBR Southeast) joined us. For the next 30 minutes, the battle raged for 2 souls, mother and child. “Michelle” was put in touch with a pregnancy resource center in her area and left with the assurance that the Lord hears our plea when we cry out to Him in our need.
If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays, he leaves the ninety-nine in the hills and goes to look for the one that has strayed, doesn’t he? Yes he does, and I thank the Lord that He let us take part in this rescue mission.
