I want to share a story with you. Years ago there was a high school senior who went to a dance in her little home town just before Thanksgiving. There she met this guy and danced and he later persuaded her to go back to his car where he did things she did not give him permission to do. Once she found out she was pregnant, she let him know but found out he was engaged to be married to someone else. This 18 year old finished high school but was starting to show and so her parents, to save embarrassment, sent her to nanny for a family in Omaha. Later, when it was time to deliver, she went to the UNMC medical center and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She saw the child’s face just for a moment as she let him go to an adopted family where he grew and was raised by two loving parents who couldn’t have children of their own.
Six years ago, the boy and the young lady reunited and then met each other’s families. This boy was me.
I met her family – her four kids – and her and her husband met my mom and dad. Kara and the boys and I were even invited to her youngest son’s wedding and were included in the photo session with the family. Later that same couple asked Kara and I to be God parents to their first born son. Their families – Kathi and her husband and three of the four kids and their families are coming to our house on Saturday. I am truly blessed.
I understand that things might have been different if there was a reproductive health clinic near her farm. And I am ok with part of that sinareo but when I think of me not being born means that I would lose our three boys – it hurts beyond belief. One of the first times Kara met birthmom Kathi, Kathyi mentioned that she so regrets getting into that car with that boy. Kara quickly added: I am sorry for your hurt but I am kind of glad you did.
I know that my life is a miracle and those who know me hopefully see me living life to the fullest as if every day is a gift from God. This my story. I know there are many thoughts about life, when it starts, and rights of women. I am asking you to – before tweeting, quickly making a rash post or comment – ask to hear the stories of those involved in the conversation. We are High Impact Men. High Impact Men who don’t act on impulse but act on wisdom.
