I wrote The Gift (Mommy Don’t) in February of 2012. Often, I had prayed to God to write a pro- life song that might save lives. I saw the main danger in such an undertaking as two fold. One, the subject lends itself to the sentimental and the sappy; and two, to it’s opposite side, hard and harsh. I’m very sensitive to and concerned for the women who have had an abortion. And I pray for them daily. I’ve read that 1 of 3 women in the USA have, sadly, had an abortion. The child is not the only victim of abortion. Many women undergo terrible remorse and guilt over the death of their child and in order to come to peace and terms with themselves they must accept God’s Mercy, name the child and come to know that the child is praying for them from heaven. The song, however, was not written to comfort the mother, but, rather, to dissuade a woman to change her mind and heart. So, how to do that without sounding condemnatory nor sappy was the challenge I gave to God.
