The Life, The Life

OK, can I tell you guys something freaking cool!?
This past weekend, The Man and I (and the little babe) were asked to participate in one of the coolest opportunities I have ever been a part of.

The month of January through the beginning of February is known as "Sanctity of Life" month. It is a month devoted to giving those the chance to stand up for life in light of Roe vs. Wade being passed 40 years ago.

This past Sunday I was asked to be an ultrasound model for a live ultrasound that was going to be shown on a large screen during every service at our church. So there I was, in a closed room, behind the stage with just the sonographer and Robert. 
The Community Director of Alternatives Pregnancy Center took the stage to speak about their services, what Sanctity of Life Sunday entailed, and then we were on. 
A screen rolled down, and the entire congregation was given the opportunity to see the little life alive inside my belly. 
A fully formed baby at just 13 weeks.
Above you can see the backs of my dad and mom's head...seeing their grandchild for the very first time!
And here are some "behind the scenes photos" ;)
And how about a little live action?

Afterward, a few families came up to Robert and I thanking us for being willing to do something like a live ultrasound. We were told how many of their children and teen's eyes were just glued to the screen seeing a little baby in the womb for the very first time. Others told us how their children had so much fun pointing our our baby's little hands, or belly, or feet.

I was one proud mama.
