At 16 weeks old almost 4 months! your baby just keeps growing and growing! He is almost half a foot long, and weighs almost half a pound!
We’ve learned that each person is special from the very moment that he or she is created.
Not only does each one of us get a unique body, with unique DNA, which grows inside our mothers’ wombs a body that is different from everyone else who has ever been and who ever will be on earth! but God also gives each of us a soul! God made that soul especially for you so that you could be complete for a special purpose on earth that no one else can fulfill.
In the Bible, we read about God telling Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you” (Jer 1:5).
Just as God had planned Jeremiah’s special role, He has planned one for each and every one of us from the very beginning of time! Your parents have a special role, you have a special role, and even the little unborn baby you’ve adopted has a special role. You must pray, though, and listen to God to discover what His very special plan for you is. And you can pray for your spiritually adopted baby, too. I wonder what God’s plans for that baby are?
