Spiritual Adoption Program: Fetal Development update.

Your Spiritually adopted unborn child, who may be in danger of being aborted and for whom you are praying daily, is now 4 months old in utero. The baby's brain has begun maturing - a process that will continue until she or he is about 14 years old. The child's eyelids are now sealed shut and will reopen at 7 months. His taste buds are now working. Nutrients consumed by the mother are passed on to the baby within an hour or two. Three hundred quarts of fluid a day are sent to the baby via the umbilical cord. Fine hair begins to grow on head, eyebrows and eyelashes. Facial expressions similar to the baby's parents can be seen at this time. This month REMs (rapid eye movements) have been recorded - a sign of dreaming. Thank you to those parishioners who have spiritually adopted an unborn child. For those who have not yet done so, please begin praying now for the safety of an unborn child who parents may be considering aborting. Name the child and contemplate that perhaps you may someday meet that person in heaven whose life may have been saved by your prayers.
