A little girl living in the city projects now has the opportunity to learn in a welcoming environment, chosen by her family, and conducive to her educational achievement. A baby is born because his mother chose life for him after viewing his picture in utero.

A married couple unable to have children receives an adopted child because their faith-based adoption agency is free to conduct its child placements without the fear of Big Brother intrusion.

A mother whose unborn child dies at the hands of a drunk driver is financially compensated for her immeasurable loss. A church is fairly reimbursed for lost access to its property when local government widens the highway on the edge of the church's property.

A life saved, a family gained, a church restored. Yes, this session was worth it. It was definitely worth it.
