I, too, wish them and their baby well. It would have been very easy to abort that little guy, but his mother chose to have him instead. She made an initial mistake, but did not choose to “fix” it—that is, commit a far worse sin—by killing her baby.

Prayers for the baby, too. With so many broken families around, his chances are probably no worse than many others who are born into our broken culture. Perhaps better, with a loving mother.

Indeed. It's never too late to start doing the right thing. Although we may carry the consequences of our mistakes for a long time, trying to "fix" that with more bad decisions only compounds the problems. Having the baby was the right thing to do. Now, there are many more big decisions that must be carefully weighed and made.
