Let Me

A Letter From Meagan



This is me at birth......




This was me just before birth....and in several states, it was still perfectly legal for my mommy to terminate my life. As a matter of fact, it was what she was advised to do.





My cute little body wasn't enough. 
My sweet lips and pointed nose weren't enough. 


My personhood wasn't enough...because I wasn't perfect. I had fluid in my head and hardly any brain. 






But my mom thought I was pretty perfect though. She fought for me.



It wouldn't be easy......






My beginning would be harder than most......




But it was ok. 
God was with me. 
My parents were with me. 
And I felt love. 
Love that allowed me to feel joy even through my challenges.




It makes me sad to know that 4,000 babies of my generation are willfully killed each day....




....and those Mommies and Daddies suffer too.






Life will have hardships





....there will be trials and pain....





...but God is good.  
He helps us find the light...



...and joy through even the darkest days...






So please don't worry.....



....don't fear....



....just be.






Let's keep this the safest place on earth for our children.







When times are tough.....just hold me...



..and take my hand....



...not my life.







I promise there will be happiness.....


...there will be joy......


....there will be memories....








I may have to work harder at things......


but we can find the beauty in it all.





With help, I can thrive.....


...with help, I can find comfort


...and with help, I can rest.





I can touch lives in ways we never thought possible...







So let me experience....


...let me celebrate my Birthdays.....


....let me learn...







God doesn't make mistakes....




...so just love me....




...just let me see....



...what God meant me to be.



"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters.........."

".........By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. "

  2. Moved to tears. This is, in my humble opinion, the best defense for life I have ever read. This is God's perfection right here.

  3. I am 10 days postpartum and WAY too hormonal to be reading this right now! Crying my eyes out over the beauty of this child's life... And sorrow for the babies who are rejected instead of loved.

  5. She is so beautiful. My son has Hydrocephalus as well but he is worth all the hard work, pain, and everything because the love and blessings we get from him more than make up for any hardship. We could never imagine our lives without him!!! I love this post, and your daughter is just gorgeous. mandiandkenny.blogspot.com
