A (not so) scary Halloween message.

October 31, 2011
I'm pretty darn excited for tomorrow. Tomorrow I open Cantaloupe Corner on Etsy and post all of our newest designs for everyone to see! It's a momentous occasion and if I were you I wouldn't miss it!

I have one more design to show off and the subject matter is very close to my heart. I have been anticipating the launch of this new design for over a year and it is finally ready! 

The subject of our newest design is Pro-Life.

I have had the privilege to hold 3 of my own precious little miracles only seconds after they were born. I have looked into their eyes and each time I am taken back by the eyes that are looking back at me. They aren't just little eyes but they are gateways to little souls. They are little people. Little, tiny, helpless, adorable, innocent people that need someone like me to take care of them until they are able to care for themselves.

The only difference between a baby in the womb and a baby in a mother's arms, and a child running through the back yard is TIME. The child is the same person through the whole process.

I will never be able to understand how a mother can abort a baby for her own convenience. From the second she makes the decision to have unprotected sex (or if protection fails) and that baby is conceived, God gives her a gift that is more precious that anything in the world. Whether it is an accident or not, a baby is special. That sweet precious baby should be able to live and enjoy life, not be snuffed out due to embarrassment or so the mother can have a more convenient lifestyle.

It's only 9 months.

For any mother out there that thinks they can't put that sweet little infant up for adoption instead: It's only 9 months out of an entire lifetime. And that 9 months is a small sacrifice for that baby and also for that mother who is not able to have children of her own. I have seen MIRACLES in lives of my friends because of those mothers that chose to have their babies and give the greatest gift to a barren mother. It touches the lives of more that just her. It touches her family and friends and enriches the lives of everyone who will get to know that precious child throughout his or her life.

I have had close friends that were adopted as babies and they are immensely grateful that they were given a good life, and even more grateful for the simple gift from their birth mother to let them live.

This is my baby. He is now 5 months old and he has the same little nose, hands, cheeks, eyes, etc. that you see in this ultrasound picture. He was given to me to raise, protect, lead, and guide.
He is a ray of sunshine in my life. My life would never be complete without any of my 3 special, unique, little boys.

It is with this little boy in mind, and my strong believe in the sanctity of life, that I introduce our newest Cantaloupe Corner product.

It is simple, and sweet, and focuses on the positive. All of us who are alive today can thank our mothers for choosing to let us live!

(This onesie is available today on our Facebook page, and will be available tomorrow in our Cantaloupe Corner Etsy shop. )

I don't know about you but I am really grateful that my mommy chose life  :)

I hope everyone has a great Halloween! Take those precious kids out trick-or-treating and be thankful that they are alive and that they fill your heart with so much love!
