30 years ago, a couple chose life for a child they carried out of wedlock. His name is Aaron Judge. Fortunately, that couple decided to place him for adoption. It paid off. Patty and Wayne Judge adopted baby Aaron as they loved and cherished every moment, they shared with him.
This 30 yr. old, 6 foot 7, 282 lb. man could very well have just been an aborted statistic, but because his birth parents chose life for their son, a Christian and a man of strong character has become the perfect role model for a generation that is in sorely need of one.
With rappers preaching about killing cops and raping women. With Hollywood spewing hate for America, with basketball players selling out to communist China for filthy lucre, Aaron Judge shines like a light in the darkness. A breath of fresh air in the stench of a society that has abandoned morality and righteousness.
On October 4th, Aaron Judge surpassed Roger Maris as the single-season home run hitter. He made history thanks to his loving parents who gave him life and let adoption unleash love.
Even following the historic moment, he took time to thank the parents who welcomed him into their home. Without this act of love from his adoptive parents, Aaron would not have accomplished this feat in baseball.
Adoption unleashes life when a couple courageous accepts a child into their home.
As a baseball fan, I celebrate two things from this historic chase.
The first is how hard Aaron Judge worked to get to this moment. While he experienced slumps and cowardice from pitchers who would be in the record book with him, he continued to keep his eye on the prize. It is well deserved on his end.
The second thing we can celebrate is the life Aaron’s parents chose. When his biological parents said “yes” to life, they knew that God had a plan for them. Their love unleashed life for their son.
Let’s never take it for granted.
