Blog Giveaway in honor of Lily's 2nd Birthday

In honor of Lily Katherine's 2nd Heavenly birthday, I am hosting a blog giveaway. The prize is a copy of the Pro-Life movie, Sarah's Choice. This movie has been such a blessing to me and I am sure it will bless you too. Whether you win or not, it is a movie worth purchasing. It came out in November 2009, when I was around five months pregnant. I literally got it the day it came out. It's a movie that echoes much of what I was experiencing in my own life at that very time. One of the first posts I wrote on this blog was about this movie. You can read that by clicking here.

One of my all-time favorite songs is from this movie. It is called Little One by Rebecca St. James. My roommate at Ellerslie, Bonnie, and I would listen to it on repeat. Faith liked it too and had it memorized in no time :) I actually hadn't heard it in a long time because it wasn't available for purchase on iTunes until recently. Bonnie played it and right away the tears came. It reminded me of the time I carried her and all the dreams I had for her life. It reminded me that she will never grow up. It made me wonder if she might be a voice for unborn life had she lived. The Lord has gently reminded me that she is a voice for the voiceless, even without speaking a word or taking a breath. What a legacy. I first heard it at the end of the movie and my heart was gripped by the words. I would just weep and weep. The one particular line that got me the most was: I can't believe that I could ever think that you were not to be. I had an appointment at Planned Parenthood set up to abort Lily. Then God radically transformed my life and placed a love within me for my tiny babe that I never dreamed possible...

  3. This is so awesome that you are doing this giveaway Hannah. I have heard about this movie and been wanting to watch it. God has given me a burden for the unborn and their mothers, prayerfully I will be working with a Christian pregnancy resource center in the future (when I return from Ellerslie Advanced!).
    You have been on my mind and heart lately. I pray the Lord continues to fill you with His peace with surpasses you understanding.

  4. Hi Hannah, thanks for the sweet comment it made this grieving mommies heart sing!
    I would love to win this movie as a pastor's wife I am often in counselling situations with women making difficult choices. I am devastated to say that since my husband started pastoring seven years ago, two women in our congregation have had abortions. I did all I could to try to convince them to keep their babys. I am heartbroken over their decision. I would love to have this movie...it would be one more helpful resource for me.
