If you were not at the YFL meeting last night, we, as a group, spiritually adopted 5 unborn children. We will pray for them for the next 9 months (40 weeks) using the spiritual adoption prayer written by Archbishop Fulton Sheen.* The cool thing is, we have a "pregnancy ticker" posted on the blog (scroll down and look at the sidebar), to keep track of the babies' development. If you click on the days listed underneath the "womb", the numbers will change to show how many weeks and days the babies have been in the womb and how many until they are born. The babies' names, chosen by YFLers, are listed below the ticker. If you're not a part of YFL, you can still pray along with us and watch the babies grow!
