And the result is truly uplifting!
Radio host, Christian author, and advocate for the disabled Joni Eareckson Tada recently shared on Facebook a video she made with one of her guests, Gianna Jessen. Along with the video, Tada told a brief story about Jessen and how she survived an abortion attempt.
Remarkably, Jessen was born weighing 2.5 pounds, after the saline abortion her birth mother was undergoing failed. Instead of signing notes concerning the procedure, the doctor actually signed her birth certificate. Although Jessen had cerebral palsy as a result of the abortion attempt, she was adopted at the age of four and has gone on to share her love and appreciation of life as a pro-life advocate on an international level.
While receiving an award from the Life Action group in Southern California for all of her efforts, Jessen met up with Tada in her studio and they finished their meeting with a little duet. As Tada shared in her post, the occasion allowed for “two women with disabilities to lift their voices in glorious harmony, all for the listening pleasure of our Savior and King.”
By watching the video you’ll feel the sheer love these two women have for their heavenly Father, even though they’ve both faced extremely challenging situations in their lives. Their joy is contagious and most inspiring, especially during Advent when we are filled with hope and faith about the coming of Jesus Christ.
