A few weeks ago, Elizabeth, an artist who is a senior at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, emailed me about her honors thesis, which is about "the sanctity and preciousness of human life and the personhood of all humans. The final product will be an exhibition of portraits of people of different ages, appearances, and abilities." She had read something online that I wrote about my story and wanted to include a portrait of Luke and Lily in her series!
She knew for years that when she finally did her thesis, she wanted to have a pro-life portrait as a part of her series, but didn't know how to get in contact with a post-abortive woman willing to share her story. That's when the Lord led her to my story. And it's perfect that we both live in North Carolina and were able to meet in person today at a coffee shop in Raleigh for an interview! It was a blessing to have a glass of iced coffee with her and share my babies, as well as hear about her artwork and project. The portrait will be based on what I shared today, as well as some photos of Lily and Luke's ultrasound image.
God is so good in how He continues to open the doors He sees fit for me to share my testimony. Lily and Luke's lives and legacies continue to make an impact. Elizabeth's series will be on display in December. It would be neat to go see it in person! As a "thank you" for participating, she will be giving me a keepsake portrait. I look forward to seeing it. Thank you for the honor of participating, Elizabeth! :)
