March for Life 2012

This is an update reported from borrowed pictures from all the teens.  I did not go on the March and missed them terribly.  We sent Goobers, Bear and Sugar on a bus with Fr. Tom from St. Angela Merici in St. Louis to Washington DC.  They were delayed hours on the bus because of bad icey weather.  As a surprise Fr. Tom and Dad had worked it out that Pooker and her boyfriend would fly into Washington DC on Saturday to join the others.  I have heard wonderful stories for each of the kiddos.  They loved the March again this year.  I watched the EWTN broadcast and video taped it for the kiddos.  The Mass before the March is new to when I used to go 20 years ago.  Watching that made me cry.  I am so proud to be Catholic.  I am so proud that I could not go with them because J and I have lived our pro-life convictions and I had to watch the little children while also letting the twins grow inside me.  I am so proud that my kiddos are willing to suffer and sacrifice to honor God and defend life.

  1. You should be proud, Shannon. That is a beautiful way to look at it. I have sometimes struggled with our inability to participate in pro-life activities like we did before children. But as you said, this is being pro-life, caring for our children and living out our pro-life lifestyle so that our children will fight and walk and pray for the unborn one day. Thank you for being such a witness for life!


I love hearing your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by.
