Life is from God

This is a photo of Luke and Grace on day three. At this stage of their lives they were 8 cell embryos.
This is a photo of Luke and Grace today. They are 3 years old.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is His reward.
Let me explain how it is that we have this remarkable photograph of Grace and Luke just three days after their conception. You see, Grace and Luke were frozen when they were 8 cell embryos. Their mommy and daddy gave this photo to me to share with you.
Grace and Luke were ‘created’ in 2003 when a couple in California went for help to conceive a child. God worked in and through the medical process uniting their biological father’s sperm with their biological mom’s egg to create these precious children. Grace and Luke were frozen when they were 8 cell embryos.
After the couple had successfully gestated and given birth to other of their embryos, Grace and Luke remained frozen ..... until Alex & Lori‘adopted’ them. Thanks be to God, Grace and Luke were implanted in their adoptive mother Lori’s womb on August 1, 2006. Alex and Lori are committed Christians. They received their son and daughter as gifts from the hand of their mighty God. These children are delightful answers to their prayers.
Little ones are unique persons from their amazing biological beginnings. They are created in the image and likeness of God and given to us out of His kindness. Let us always and everywhere give thanks to the Lord for the gift of children, loving and protecting them in life and through Law.
Children are to be reckoned among the divine favors bestowed on us,
and for their lives, their health, their virtues,
and the happiness derived from them, we are, as in other things,
dependent on Him.
