As you head out for church this morning, or read your Bible, or meditate, remember that it will take changing hearts to save lives.
Former “Kansas” Lead Singer and Grammy-winning Artist John Elefante has partnered with Online for Life to launch the music video for “This Time” – a powerful song that tells the story of John’s adopted daughter’s birth mother choosing life 20 years ago for Sami.
The song’s lyrics are based on the true story of what Sami’s 13-year old birth mother might have experienced… as “she sat cold in a waiting room, frightened and all alone . . . knowing that her baby would soon be gone.” As the video unfolds, we see the dreams she had of a little girl celebrating her third birthday and growing into a woman through the years, and we hear the voice she heard telling her to “run away . . . you’re not taking her . . . this time.”
“I can’t imagine life without my daughter, Sami, and it just breaks my heart that pregnant young women much like her birth mother, instead of choosing life for their babies, are denying them the chance to be born,” Elefante said. “If our song can in any way bring attention to this issue and encourage those who are considering abortion to choose life through options such as adoption, then we couldn’t be happier.”
