In my testimony in support of Bill 195-32 of October 13, 2013, I wrote that I could give the name of a happy adoptive father of a child who survived an abortion on Guam. Former Guam resident, Mike Carey, is the name of the “happy adoptive father” and he has given me permission to share the following.

Our daughter, Kaitlyn, survived a late-term abortion attempt by a young woman who ingested pills issued by an island "Women's clinic."  Instead of inducing a spontaneous abortion as intended, the woman went into labor, and a friend had the presence of mind to drive her to GMH where she delivered a live 3 1/2 pound "preemie" and subsequently abandoned her there.  Through the good offices of our priest and a Godly social worker, we took the child into our home at age 34 days.  After three court appearances over the next eight months, she officially became our daughter.

The girl is a bonafide miracle child.  Not only did Kaitlyn escape the welter of medical issues one might expect in a child who entered the world under such adverse conditions, she emerged as a beautiful island girl, healthy, athletic and startlingly intelligent -- nothing Chris and I can take genetic credit for, but we consider ourselves blessed for the privilege to raise such a child.  

Now, at age seven, Kaitlyn makes straight "A"s in second grade at St Peter's Catholic School in Beaufort, SC.  She also successfully tested for a green belt in Tae Kwon Do karate and is now training for her blue belt, with only brown and black belts to follow.  Her instructor expects her to achieve both by age ten. 

A few recent photos are attached.

Semper fi,
