When you read this young man’s letter to a birth mother, keep in mind that if not for her brave choice he would’ve been one of the 1.3 million babies aborted every year.
“My adopted parents owned a small organic farm and vegetable stand. All of their children worked there growing up. I know how to drive a tractor and how to get up at 5:30 in the morning and love it… I am healthy and taller than anyone in my adopted family. Those height genes were very helpful growing up with three brothers who were older than me.
I did well in school in everything – except biology. That subject was never my forte. Apparently I can eat fried frog’s legs, but I cannot cut them up. History was my favorite subject. I still love books about history, and my favorite television station is the History Channel. I played basketball and soccer all through high school. I graduated at the top of my class. I received a scholarship to a college for playing the Bassoon.… My band teacher told me to master an instrument that nobody wanted to play and that would almost guarantee a scholarship… So if you ever need a Bassoon player who knows how to drive a tractor, I’m your man.
I’m currently a business major in school and hope to go on to get my MBA. I hope to one day own a profitable hydroponics form. I know it sounds crazy, but it has been a dream of mine ever since our family visited Epcot years ago.
Since I was about seven years old, I like to build models. Airplanes, cars, trucks, whatever I can put together I love to do…..
Please know that I am at peace with you and have great love for you… I know that I was born in a time when many children did not survive. I know that you had a choice, and I’m so very thankful you chose to give me life.”

This touching letter to a birth mother gives details of the young man’s life story. This life story would not exist if his mother had an abortion. The children in the wombs of mothers considering abortion are human beings. If allowed to grow up, they will be people like you and me. This letter to a birth mother shows that life is precious. Adoption is an answer everyone can live with.Share on Facebook
