Babies. Having Babies.

Title link here.

So, my younger sister had her baby. It didn't go exactly as planned, but both my sister and her daughter are alive and stable.

It was pretty crazy yesterday. My wife and I were at my parents' house all day, keeping my mom company while we waited for the latest news about what was happening at the hospital.

Thus, today seems to be about babies.

My dad had a recent post about the medical world's odd stance on home births and abortion. This links nicely with a post from Scott pointing to an article about how abortion looks a lot like "Black genocide". But couple this with a very insightful post from Jennifer about how she used to be irritated that people would lump pro-choicers with those who killed babies and we end up with a rather crazy mix of emotions and thoughts.

I mean, my sister almost lost her baby yesterday. It was really emotional--especially for her, her husband, and my parents--and yet there are many people who want to get rid of their babies before they are even born.

It feels surreal.

I guess.

I guess that's what I'm feeling.

Okay, back to preparing for the Heart of the Matter Conference. It's been a pretty crazy Monday... especially when I realized that the conference starts on Wednesday instead of Thursday.

How did I get that wrong?

Wednesday is the new Thursday.
