Psalm 127:3 NCV Children are a gift from the Lord; babies are a reward.
Fifty-two teenage girls were celebrated in a mass baby shower for their decisions to have their children instead of killing them through abortion.
Texas-based Embrace Grace held the event last month after the girls attended a series of classes by the group that provides emotional, practical and spiritual support for girls experiencing unplanned pregnancies.
“Several of the girls in all of our classes are sometimes on the fence regarding abortion, but once they come to one of our classes and see the support that there is, that their immediate needs for the baby are covered and that they don’t have to walk this road alone, they usually change their mind and keep their baby,” Embrace Grace founder Amy Ford told the Christian Post.
Ford said that many of the girls who enter the Embrace Grace program are not church goers but give their lives to Christ after experiencing the blessings of strangers showing them unconditional love and support.
“We provide a curriculum and resources for the church to implement the program as well as offer sponsorship for the churches that may not be able to afford the expenses involved with helping young women with crisis pregnancies,” said Ford. “If the church, the body of Christ, would join together to support these girls that choose life, young moms will be more open to not abort their baby.”
