Katie

Elizabeth Greenier was our fourth natural pregnancy. She is not with us due to a miscarriage, but she will always have a place in our family and hearts.

One day, we shall see her in person, as we have committed her care to the Lord Jesus until that day when we join Him and all those who have entered into Heaven before us.

Please, don’t let the world fool you, every pregnancy is real and special. Just because your child wasn’t delivered live, does not mean they are hopelessly lost; on the contrary, they are in His arms (for such is the Kingdom of Heaven). He created them for a purpose.

Life…

According to Science, when does life start? …

These are FACTS. Do not bother me with arguments. Nothing changes FACT.

If life was discovered on another planet there are criteria we would refer to conclusively determine if the claim was accurate. How do scientists identify life?

A scientific textbook called “Basics of Biology” gives five characteristics of living things; these five criteria are found in all modern elementary scientific textbooks:

All living things… are highly organized, have an ability to acquire materials and energy, have an ability to respond to their environment, have an ability to reproduce, and have an ability to adapt.

According to this life begins at fertilization, when a sperm unites with an egg. At this point all five things above are true. Non-living things do not do these things. Even before the mother is aware that she is pregnant, a distinct, unique life has begun his or her existence inside her.

That life is human. A human being is a member of the species homo sapiens. Human beings are products of conception, which is when a human male sperm unites with a human female egg.
