Posted on 09/04/2009 3:34:45 PM PDT by NYer

An exceptionally touching 9 minute video of a courageous, loving couple who show what it means to be pro-life, give life and reject the life-demeaning advise of professionals.

That was heartbreaking. What wonderful people to give their son so much love during his short life. May God bless them.

I’m a grown man, I cried the whole time.

No person still in the womb is better off dead.

You make an excellent point. Thomas lived only 5 days during which he gave his all to his family and received their love in return. Given that we will all die some day, what is our life in comparison to eternity ... be it 5 days or 5 decades.

This video is a must-see for anyone who is pro-choice. I don’t know how anyone could see it and not be moved.

What a beautiful story. Faith, Hope and Love Abide, and when all else is gone, there is Love.

God Bless this Couple and their baby girl in January 2010 and their little angel in the arms of Mother Mary, Thomas.

I'm in the midst of doing the site for the Respect Life group of the Antelope Valley ... how timely this beautiful story of love was for me.

I want to link to it, but will decide when my tears have dried.

I would do nothing different than what they did. It is up to God only how many days we have on this earth.

Powerful. Heartbreaking, but a powerful, undeniable, testament of LIFE.
