Earlier this month I got an unexpected phone call from Kim Schams. Kim is the Founder of Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach (APO for short), for those of you that aren’t aware of who she is and the incredible work she does.

When Lindy got pregnant in high school and was thinking about adoption, no one hesitated to offer THEIR opinion.

“Adoption is so selfish. You shouldn’t give your baby away just because it’s inconvenient.”
Lindy: If I was being selfish, I promise I would be keeping him. Adoption hurts so much at the beginning. I can only do this because I am putting his needs above my own.
“You need to own up to your responsibility and take care of that baby yourself.”
Lindy: I am being responsible. If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t be working so hard to find the right
adoptive family for by baby. It’s going to be an open adoption so I can make sure my
son knows I love him and didn’t just give him away – that I made a good plan for him.
“If you don’t want your baby, why don’t you just have an abortion?”
Lindy: I am not going to kill my baby just because I made a mistake. I believe God values EVERY human life. Abortion is not an option for me and my baby.
“If you’ll keep your baby, I’ll help and baby sit sometimes.”
Lindy: Yeah, right!
