Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, 2 and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him for three months. Exodus 2:1-2
What is it like being a mother who needs to hid3 her children for fear of bad things happening? We only get a glimpse of this happening in these verses but I’m certain it happened all throughout the land.
Through the ages, women have had to hide their children because of psychotic and evil leaders. It happpened in this passage; it happened when Christ was born. In our day, it’s happened in China when they instituted their one child policy (primarily against girls).
And of course, in the United States men in black robes declared it fine to terminate the life of an unborn child. A couple of States have even stated that it’s fine to do right up until the birth of the child.
Continue to pray for the unborn.
Pray that those making that decision will realize the opportunities they have to adopt out the child.
Pray that State governments will make it easier for potential adoptive parents to adopt without the years of red tape.
