Birth Story: Los Angeles, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 54-year-old man on December 10, 2016.


She practically danced to the front of the room as I was setting up for class and other students were arriving. That's just the way she is—vivacious, always smiling. "Hey Professor, wanna see my new tattoo?" I agreed, then prayed the location of said ink was ... er ... anatomically appropriate. You never know. She took off her shoe and showed me some Chinese writing on the top of her foot. "It's the date of my adoption. I was dropped off at an orphanage in China right after I was born. My mom and dad adopted me when I was three and brought me to the U.S.”

There are moments when everything seems to stop, when in the busyness of the mundane, the sacred intrudes. I was looking at a miracle. "Did you know they abort baby girls in China?  They've killed millions. I was born during the one-child policy, and, well, they prefer boys." I could only nod. "I'm glad I wasn't aborted. I'm glad I'm alive, and I don't know about anyone else, but I'm so grateful to be living here.”

I'm glad you're here too, precious girl. So very, very glad.
