A mother’s inspiring video about her blind baby boy

Embracing Life

One girl told Lacey Buchanan that she was a terrible person for not aborting her son.

Often, it is hard for the Buchanans to go out in public with Baby Christian. Not because he is blind, but because sometimes strangers see his disability and make nasty comments. However, the story about Christian was spread via word of mouth and social media, and thankfully the young family met with more compassionate and supportive remarks. People looked beyond the baby’s deformity and saw the beauty of his giggle.

And that giggle spreads joy to others.

Lacey says:

“This is my plea to anyone considering abortion. Re-think your decision, not matter the circumstances. I am so glad I choose life!”

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.
