Abandoned baby led her back to faith

Cradle My Heart Today | Kerry’s Story 11-1-17

Kerry had twenty minutes to decide to become a mom. Watch now:

When she became a mom to Gus, who’s now ten years old, she told NBC News she got a call asking if she would take the tiny dark-haired boy. His mother had given birth in a hospital bathroom and then left him behind.

“I was crazed. I was shaking,” she said. “I had twenty minutes to decide! I called my husband and he said, ‘If this is what you want . . .’ And I said, ‘OK! We’re in!’

“And the social worker said, “Congratulations, you have a son!”

Kerry wants women to know they can deliver their children to safe havens; a hospital, police or fire station. And she’s shocked that almost twenty years after the first safe haven law was passed, many people still don’t know they exist.

Today, Kerry says, “Everything about Gus was a miracle. He’s brought me back to faith.”

The shocking choice to abandon a helpless newborn is less surprising in light of our laws which allow the utter destruction of a child through abortion.

While a woman may experience an unwanted pregnancy, there is no such thing as an unwanted child.

And there is always a better way.

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Ps 127:3 NLT
