Story #34: Blessing Bags

Submitted by Sidewalk Advocates for Life – Berwyn Heights, MD

“Christmas”/”Blessing” bags are great! First thing today, there was a save thanks to them. I handed one to a father and one to the mother on the way in and handed literature to the older man who drove and went in with them. I saw the couple looking at and taking the things out of the bag before they went in. About 15 minutes later they came out and said they were keeping the baby! Those “Precious Feet” pins are what did it, I feel sure, but the candy and the little bag made it so much easier than normal to get these little feet that speak for themselves into the parents’ hands! Thank you, Kate, for all of the work of assembling these bags! They are wonderful!

Yesterday many people took the blessing bags and literature, too. I lost track of how many people entered and left, but I managed to hand out all but one of the remaining blessing bags that I had.
