Children are always a blessing. I will say it again: Children. Are. Always. A. Blessing.
The value of a child is inestimable. I have heard it argued that “every child should be a wanted child.” How ignorant? Every child is wanted. Every child is valuable. Anyone who does not like children has a disease and is sick. Anyone who wants to harm children or prevent their birth by violent means is wicked.
A child can soften the hardest of hearts. A child can teach an immature adult maturity. Children demonstrate the beauty of innocence. There are so many lessons that adults miss or fail to be reminded of when they are not surrounded by them.
Children are always a blessing.
