Meet my grandson

By Tom Quiner


When I heard the news in the Fall, I exclaimed to a friend: “I’m going to be a grandfather!” Being the good pro lifer that she is, she said, “you already are.”

Of course, she is correct.

My grandson, who will be my first grandchild, will be born this Spring. He is nonetheless fully human, fully alive, fully a person this very minute in his mother’s womb.

In fact, he was fully human, fully alive, fully a person at the instant of his conception.

Being the proud grandfather that I am, I’d like to show him off. Watch the video above to get to know another of God’s wonderful creations, my grandson.

    Dear Tom,
    I have a lump in my throat; your images and scripture are woven perfectly.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if your presentation went viral in a BIG way?
    Congratulations and God bless your family – those already present and
    those awaiting birth. – Marilyn Lane
