LEXINGTON, Ky. — A Kentucky couple has issued an adoption offer to abortion-minded mothers after viewing one of the expose’ videos of the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Kevin and Nicole Cook watched the fourth investigative video this past July, which featured staff from Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains sifting through the body parts of an aborted child.
“[A]nother boy!” one technician exclaimed.
The footage “shattered” the Cook’s heart. Nicole had suffered a miscarriage over a year ago, and has struggled with infertility ever since.
“I have been praying, and hoping, and waiting, and crying out to God for a child for almost two years now,” Kevin, a student at Asbury Theological Seminary, wrote on his personal blog. “If anyone out there reads this and is considering abortion, I will take your baby. My wife and I will gladly take all your babies!”
“I’m completely serious,” he continued. “If you are pregnant and don’t want your child, we will. It’s not a fetus. It’s a blessing. Life matters.”
The Cooks soon got involved with sidewalk ministry outside of an abortion facility in Lexington, creating a sign that read, “Please don’t abort. We will adopt your baby.” They posted a photo of the experience on Facebook and wrote about their desire to adopt, which soon went viral.
“The past few days have been insane! I’ve barely been able to touch my studies,” Cook wrote on Nov. 3. “We’ve had literally thousands of messages from people all across the country. … Hundreds of women have messaged us saying that they would prefer to give up their baby through adoption rather than getting an abortion, but they don’t know how to do that.”
The couple continues to await an open door to adopt in hopes of saving a life, and would like to help point as many mothers as they can to adoption agencies.
“We are still looking for the right situation for God to use us to save the life of a child who would otherwise be aborted, and we would love to be able to save two if God provides that!” Cook explained. “Women continue to message us and we are looking at each one as an opportunity to save a life, either through personally adopting their child or through connecting them with an adoption agency locally.”
“Our prayer is to completely overwhelm adoption agencies nationwide with an influx of birth mothers who have seen our message and have chosen life!” he said. “If we can double the number of mothers choosing life and connecting with adoption agencies, we would save thousands of innocent lives and provide loving families with the children their hearts long for. We would also bring down the waiting time and overhead cost of adoption through agencies. Lord, hear our prayer! Jesus, make it happen!”
