A Very Special Mother's Day

Four years ago, a seventeen-year-old mother grappled with the biggest decision of her life. Her high school graduation was around the corner. Her prom swished and swirled in front of her. Her sweet, curly-haired baby was a week old.  She had dreams--big, big dreams. But mostly, she had prayers. She begged God to show her what He wanted for her baby and for herself. She chose to keep the baby. And with the support of her family, she has given that baby a loving home. I've been privileged to watch them both grow. Today, Emily graduates from college. And with this graduation, she is for her daughter a living testimony to hard work,determination, self-discipline--and mostly, life-giving love. Congratulations, Emily! May God continue to bless you abundantly!
