Diary of an Unborn Child

Oct. 5: Today my life began. My parents do not know it yet, but it is I already. And I am to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and blue eyes. Just about everything is settled, even the fact that I shall love flowers.

Oct 19: Some say that I am not a real person yet, that only my mother exists. But I am a real person, just as a small crumb of bread is yet truly bread. My mother is. And I am.

Oct 23: My mouth is just beginning to open now. Just think, in a year or so I shall be laughing and later talking. I know what my first word will be: Mama

Oct 25: My heart began to beat today all by it's self. From now on it shall gently beat for the rest of my life without ever stopping to rest! And after many years it will tire. It will stop, and then I shall die.

Nov 2: I am growing a bit every day. My arms and legs are beginning to take shape. But I have to wait a long time yet before those little legs will raise me to my mother's arms, before these Little arms will be able to gather flowers and embrace my father.

Nov 12: Tiny fingers are beginning to form on my hands. Funny how small they are! I'll be able to stroke my mother's hair with them.

Nov 20: It wasn't until today that the doctor told mom that I am living her under her heart. Oh, how happy she must be! Are you happy mom?

Nov 25: My mom and dad are probably thinking about a name for me. But they don't even know that I am a little girl. I want to be called Kathy. I am getting so big already.

Dec 10: My hair is growing. It is smooth and bright and shiny. I wonder what kind of hair mom has?

Dec 13: I am just about able to see. It is dark around me. When mom brings me into the world it will be full of sunshine and flowers. But what I want more than anything is to see my mom. How do you look, mom?

Dec 24: I wonder if mom hears the whispering of my heart? Some children come into the world a little sick. But my heart is strong and healthy. It beats so evenly; tup-tup, tup-tup. You'll have a healthy little daughter, mom!

Dec 28: Today my mother killed me.

It is absolutely unbelievable to me that people do not consider abortion murder! This post is so brought tears to my eyes. Amen sister friend...children are without a doubt the BEST gift from God!
