Last weekend, I had the honor of sharing Matthew’s story at the Birthright International Conference in Newark, NJ.
If you are not familiar with Birthright, it is a wonderful organization that offers free, nonjudgmental help to any woman facing an unplanned, unwanted, or difficult pregnancy. Their website says, “The essence of Birthright is love,” and we found that to be true as we were welcomed with warm and open arms by all of the delegates at the conference. What an incredible group of women and men, all of whom have dedicated themselves to “loving both.” They love all babies, born and unborn, and love their mothers no matter what the circumstances.
I shared Matthew’s story as the keynote speaker at the conference banquet, and it was very well received.
Aaron and I also got to see a part of the country we’d never seen: New York City! It was a lot for this small-town-girl to take in, but we had a lot of fun. We walked through Central Park, rode the elevator to the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, and experienced Times Square and the busy, busy streets of the Big Apple.
