Count ME!

A Gallup survey released Friday found that 51 percent of those questioned call themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42 percent "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as "pro-life" since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.

Count ME as one of them. I don't understand how we can have so many rescues for animals (they're sweet, and the people are great to do it) and yet be able to throw away millions of humans! Where's the logic in that? A woman's body HOUSES a baby. The baby isn't wholly part of her body, it is a being all it's own, with it's own DNA, it's own feelings, and fears. A woman should not be able to choose to kill, just because her offspring isn't outside her body yet. If someone killed their son when he was 8 it would be murder. What's the difference, I ask?? Size? Potential to run away? We're so selfish in this world, we're willing to sacrifice HUMANS for our convenience, our reputation, our comfort? Some people sacrifice their children to Idols, we sacrifice our children to the god of Selfishness.

ADOPTION NOT ABORTION. I know friends who have had to go all the way overseas, and paid thousands of dollars to adopt babies, while we toss ours in the garbage. Let's wake up and start caring for our nation's babies!

Long Video of Frappie in her play yard

I have sad news. My baby bun, Keeley, died. She was at the vet for a week, and just didn't pull through. I'll miss her so much, but I'm so glad to have Frappie back.
Here is a video of Frappie in her play yard. I just kept filming, because she kept rewarding me with more fun binkies and jumps. :)

Our Sweet Esther is in Heaven

(we've been following the news of Esther for a few years now, and yesterday, she passed away. I am so honored to have been a part of this little girl's life through prayer. This is the email that came this morning.)

Esther Joy Travis

entered into
the Joy of her Lord,

from death unto life eternal

Touche s of grace : (things Esther said over this last week)

1. 4-30-09 Thursday morning she woke up and wanted to eat Adam remembers that prayer, She was so grateful to eat! Daddy asked her if she had seen Jesus. Esther said YES and Adam askedwhen. Esther said,"While I was praying for my food I saw Him in my heart". Adam went on to ask if He said anything and she said, "He said I will be with you." Anxious that she was going to go Adam asked "Is he with you now?" She replied,"He is always in my heart Daddy! He said I WILL be with you." Adam is still laughing about how silly his question was. =)

2. 4-30-09 We were watching a movie but she wasn't really watching so I asked her what she was thinking about she replied" I was thinking about how special Jesus is". I said, Yes, He is special, what special thing where you thinking about? She said" How strong He is".

3. 5-3-09 Sunday Adam walked the kids over to Sunday school and came back to help me with Esther. When she realized he was back she said, "Daddy you can go". He explained he was staying to help me with her and I ask, do you want Daddy to go? Esther nodded and said "Yes, I want you to go teach the Indians about Jesus".

4. 5-3-09 That night we had taken her into the hospital for platlet s and two red cell transfusion s. She sat up with a smile and wanted to hug me I will always remember those little boney arms with her pick line brace squeasing my neck as she spoke the words I love you mommy for the last time.
I was headed to get her meds a little later and she muttered "Don't worry about me mommy, Jesus will be with me."

5. 5-8-09 F or fun when Daddy wiped an eyelash off her cheek he asked what she wished for. Esther said (what we would later know was her real last conversatio n) "I wish to go to heaven".

6. 5-9-09 After a hard night and morning we were able at 2:30 to get her pain finally to subside. We fell asleep stretched out by her. The Lord sent a total stranger to wake us up (a man from Southwood Baptist Church, who said they had taken up a collection for us and had been praying for us) as Adam started to visit with him I realized Esther was taking her last few breathes. I called Adam he excused himself and we along with her two older siblings Jonathan and Deborah were able to be with her as she took her last. The Lord answered our prayer to both be with her as she passed on.

May God Bless You All,

Adam and Jennifer Travis
