then...i started talking to their grandma. i didn't ask about their story yet she felt led to tell me.
their mom found a lump on her breast. this was before the youngest girl was born. the doctor and mom were concerned. then, she found out she was pregnant.
the doctor recommended an abortion so she could carry on with treatments if need be. she declined. she chose to give life to the baby growing inside her.
she chose life...because life is beautiful.
and she passed away when that sweet baby was two years old.
i looked back at the sweet girls knowing their story. i sensed the sadness in their eyes, the longing for their mother. i sensed they are strong, loved, protected and nurtured by their family. and i knew they were aware of the intense love their mother has for them.
in my grieving for this family i had just met, i longed to hug the girls. to wrap my arms around them as if that would help them feel better...maybe make my own self feel better.
this true story ties in with a new movie coming out March 23rd. this movie deals with a hard issue that is not being dealt with. i can recommend this movie wholeheartedly because we were able to see it on the cruise as a sneak peek.
it is a solid movie with a strong message. it will make you laugh and cry.
every life is beautiful.
please watch the trailer and go see it this weekend.
