Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

Facebook'S C.E.O. MARK

ZUCKERBERG IS IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR TWO

DAYS OF CONGRESSIONAL

QUESTIONING.

AT THE HEART OF THE MATTER

IS WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR

PERSONAL DATA WHILE YOU

WERE ON Facebook.

ERIK ROSALES IS FOLLOWING

THIS STORY.

Reporter: THE

Facebook FOUNDER HAS

REPORTEDLY FACED INTENSE

PREPARATIONS FOR TODAY'S

BACK-TO-BACK HEARINGS ON

THE PRIVACY DATA SCANDAL.

PRIOR TO THAT TESTIMONY,

HE HEADED UP TO CAPITOL

HILL AND MET WITH BILL

NELSON, THE TOP DEMOCRAT

ON THE COMMERCE COMMITTEE.

IF WE DON'T WATCH OUT,

SOCIAL MERCHANDISE LIKE

Facebook AND THE

MISTAKES THEY MADE IN THE

PAST, THEN NO AMERICAN

WILL HAVE ANY PRIVACY.

Reporter: Facebook

RELEASED ZUCKERBERG'S

OPENING STATEMENT, AND IN

IT, HE TAKES

RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS

COMPANY.

HE STATES: "FOR MOST OF

OUR EXISTENCE, WE FOCUS ON

ALL OF THE GOOD THAT

CONNECTING PEOPLE CAN

BRING."

HE LAYS OUT HIS VERSION OF

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE

CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA

SCANDAL, STATING: "IT IS

CLEAR WE DIDN'T DO ENOUGH

TO PREVENT HARM, AND THAT

GOES FOR FAKE NEWS, HATE

SPEECH, AND PRIVACY."

JOHN KENNEDY SAYS HE IS

CONCERNED Facebook MAY

BE TOO BIG TO FIX.

IS IT FAIR FOR ME TO

GIVE UP ALL OF MY PERSONAL

DATA TO Facebook, AND

APPARENTLY EVERYBODY ELSE

IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE,

IN EXCHANGE FOR ME BEING

ABLE TO SEE WHAT SOME OF

MY HIGH SCHOOL BUDDIES HAD

FOR DINNER SATURDAY NIGHT?

WHO OWNS MY DATA?

DO I OWN IT, OR DOES

Facebook OWN IT?

Reporter: SO WHAT NEW

REGULATIONS COULD BE ON

THE HORIZON?

BRIAN VEGI SAYS LAWMAKERS

COULD TAKE A PAGE FROM

EUROPE WHERE A NEW LAW

AIMS TO PROVIDE MORE

PROTECTION FOR CITIZENS'

PERSONAL DATA.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO

COLLECT THIS DATA, YOU

NEED TO TREAT IT WITH

RESPECT, LIKE SOMETHING

VALUABLE.

YOU SHOULD ONLY COLLECT

WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO

AND IF YOU DON'T NEED IT

ANYMORE, YOU SHOULD DELETE

IT.

Reporter: ALL

2.2 BILLION Facebook

USERS WILL RECEIVE A

NOTICE CALLED "PROTECTING

YOUR INFORMATION," OVER

THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: AND HERE IS A

QUICK LOOK AT SOME OF THE

HEADLINES WEARING WE'RE FOLLOWING

FOR YOU TODAY IN THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

FEDERAL AGENTS HAVE RAIDED

THE OFFICE OF MICHAEL

COHEN.

THE F.B.I. SEIZED RECORDS,

SOME THAT ARE POTENTIALLY

RELATED TO A $130,000

PAYMENT MADE TO STORMY

DANIELS.

> ARIZONA AND MEXICO

HAVE MADE PLEDGES TO SEND

TROOPS TO THE U.S.-MEXICO

BORDER.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HE

WANTS TO SEND 2,000 TO

4,000 MEMBERS T OF THE

NATIONAL GUARD TO THE

BORDER.

> A COMMUNITY ALREADY

STUNNED BY THE DEATH OF 15

HOCKEY PLAYERS HAS MORE

DEVASTATING NEWS: ONE OF

THE PLAYERS WAS

MISIDENTIFIED.

THE MISTAKEN IDENTITY

HAPPENED PARTLY BECAUSE

ALL TEAM MEMBERS DYED

THEIR HAIR BLONDE FON THE

PLAYOFFS.

FOR THE

PLAYOFFS.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

TALKING TOUGH ON THE

LATEST SUSPECTED CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ATTACK IN SYRIA.

ON MONDAY, HE SAID THE

U.S. WILL RESPOND IN 24 TO

48 HOURS.

FOR MORE ON THIS, WE TURN

TO BEN KENNEDY IN

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: A

HORRIFYING GAS ATTACK IN

SYRIA PROMPTED PRESIDENT

TRUMP TO WARN THAT NOTHING

IS OFF THE TABLE IN

RESPONSE TO THE STRIKE

THAT KILLED AT LEAST 40

PEOPLE.

CHILLING IMAGES OF KIDS

SURFACED.

VICTIMS OF THE LATEST

SUSPECTED CHEMICAL WEAPONS

ATTACK.

President Trump: WE

CANNOT ALLOW ATROCITIES

LIKE THAT.

Reporter: BASHAR

al-ASSAD DENIED HE WAS

BEHIND THE VIOLENCE,

CLAIMING THAT THE VIDEO

WAS FA FABRICATED.

NOT TRUE SAID NIKKI HALEY.

THE MONSTER RESPONSIBLE

FOR THESE ATTACKS HAS NO

CONSCIENCE.

Reporter: THE ATTACK

TOOK PLACE LESS THAN A

WEEK AFTER TRUMP SAID HE

WANTED TO PULL U.S. TROOPS

FROM SYRIA.

IN THE MEANTIME, THE

SOLDIERS WILL STAY, ALONG

WITH A WARNING THAT THOSE

INVOLVED WILL PAY A BIG

PRICE.

TRUMP ALSO CRITICIZED

ASSAD'S MOST POWERFUL

SUPPORTER, RUSSIAN

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN,

MAKING IT CLEAR HE INTENDS

TO TAKE ACTION.

Reporter: DOES PUTIN

BEAR RESPONSIBILITY FOR

THIS?

President Trump: HE

MAY.

HE MAY.

IF HE DOES, IT WILL BE

TOUGH.

Reporter: WHILE THE

PRESIDENT PREPARED FOR A

MEETING WITH MILITARY

LEADERS ABOUT SYRIA, THE

NEWS CAME THAT THE F.B.I.

HAD RAIDED THE OFFICE OF

TRUMP'S LONG-TIME PERSONAL

ATTORNEY MICHAEL COHEN.

AGENTS TOOK DOCUMENTS,

INCLUDING SOME POSSIBLY

TIED TO A $130,000 PAYMENT

COHEN MADE TO STORMY

DANIELS.

WHO SAID SHE HAD A SEXUAL

ENCOUNTER WITH TRUMP IN

2006, A CLAIM THE WHITE

HOUSE DENIES.

THE COHEN RAID IS

APPARENTLY NOT LINKED TO

THE RUSSIAN PROBE,

ACCORDING TO THE "NEW YORK

TIMES," BUT IT ALSO SAID

HE IS BEING INVESTIGATEDED

FOR BANK FRAUD.

President Trump: THEY

BROKE INTO THE OFFICE OF

ONE OF MY PERSONAL

ATTORNEYS, A GOOD MAN, AND

IT IS A DISGRACEFUL

SITUATION.

Reporter: TRUMP

LASHED OUT AT THE RAID,

CALLING IT A WITCH HUNT.

THAT IS REALLY NOW IN A

WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF

UNFAIRNESS.

Reporter: TODAY

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS FOCUSED

ON SYRIA.

LAST YEAR HE ORDERED A

MILITARY STRIKE ON A

SYRIAN AIR FIELD AFTER A

SUSPECTED SERIN GAS

ATTACK, BUT IT IS NEW

CLEAR ASSAD DID NOT TAKE

THE WARNING SERIOUSLY AS

MORE CIVILIANS WERE THE

TARGETS OF HIS LATEST

STRIKE.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: AN ALABAMA

LAW, ALLOWING JUDGES TO

APPOINT AN ATTORNEY FOR

UNBORN CHILDREN OF WOMEN

SEEKING ABORTION IS UNDER

SCRUTINY TODAY.

THE PROCESS ALLOWS THE

PROSECUTOR TO CALL

WITNESSES TO DETERMINE

WHETHER THE MOTHER IS

MATURE ENOUGH TO HAVE AN

ABORTION AND GRANTS

COUNSEL TO HER UNBORN

BABY.

AN ALABAMA ABORTION CLINIC

SUED, ARGUING THE LAW

BURDENS THE MOTHER.

A FEDERAL JUDGE STRUCK

DOWN THE LAW LAST

SEPTEMBER -- LAST SUMMER,

RATHER -- AND TODAY, IN A

SEPARATE COURT IS HEARING

THAT ALABAMA APPEAL.

> COMING UP HERE ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," PUERTO RICO

WAS DEVASTATED BY TWIN

HURRICANES LAST YEAR.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU

WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE

CALLING THE STORM A

BLESSING IN DISGUISE.

Efrem: WILD WEATHER

Efrem: WILD WEATHER

HAS BEEN SWEEPING THROUGH

MOST OF THE COUNTRY.

MORE THAN TWO WEEKS INTO

SPRING, WINTER WEATHER

SLAMMED DOWN FROM NORTH

DAKOTA TO NORTH CAROLINA

WITH WIND-CHILLS IN THE

20s, SNOW AND ICE

CAUSING MORE THAN TWO

DOZEN ACCIDENTS.

MEANWHILE, IN THE SOUTH,

10 TORNADOES WERE

REPORTED, FROM TEXAS TO

LOUISIANA.

THIS WHILE THE WEST COAST

IS SUFFERING APRIL STORMS

THAT ARE BRINGING FLOODING

AND BLUSTERING WINDS.

AND IT DOESN'T END THERE.

A MUDSLIDE IN PENNSYLVANIA

COLLAPSING INTO AN

APARTMENT COMPLEX,

EVACUATING SOME 30 PEOPLE.

FORTUNATELY, THOUGH, NO

INJURIES WERE REPORTED.

AND, OF COURSE, WE KNOW IN

THE LAST YEAR PUERTO RICO

HAS SEEN TWIN HURRICANES,

BUT SOME SAY THIS MAY BE A

BLESSING IN DISGUISE.

OUR HEATHER SELLS HAS MORE

ON THIS STORY.

Heather: PUERTO RICO

HAS BEEN STRIPPED OF SO

MUCH IN THE WAKE OF

HURRICANE MARIA, BUT WHAT

IS FLOURISHING HERE IS THE

CHURCH.

THE STORY OF THE ISOLATED

MOUNTAIN VILLAGEC VILLAGE OF COMA

RIO TELLS IT ALL.

LAST SUMMER, GOD CALLED

GEORGE IN BACK TO START A

CHURCH IN HIS HOME TOWN.

AT FIRST NOTHING SEEMED TO

BE HAPPENING.

WHEN WE CAME HERE IN

JULY 2017, WE DIDN'T HAVE

A CHANCE TO OPEN THE BIBLE

AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO

THE PEOPLE.

Heather: BUT JUST TWO

MONTHS LATER, HURRICANE

MARIA TURNED THIS PRETTY

MOUNTAIN STREAM INTO A

RAGING RIVER, AND THE

PEOPLE OF COMA RIO WERE

PARALYZED.

THEIR TOWN IN SHAMBLES,

AND THEIR ACCESS TO FOOD

AND WATER, GONE.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT

I WAS SEEING.

THERE WAS DESTRUCTION

EVERYWHERE.

Heather: SAN SANTIAGO

QUICKLY SPRANG INTO

ACTION, FINDING RESOURCES

LIKE FOOD, WATER, AND EVEN

WASHING MACHINES, SO

PEOPLE COULD WASH THEIR

CLOTHES.

THESE ACTS OF SERVICE, HE

SAYS, BECAME HIS WAY BACK

INTO THE COMMUNITY AND HIS

PATH TO SHARING THE

GOSPEL.

PEOPLE WERE JUST STRUNG

OUT, AND ASKING ALL OF THE

TIME, WHY ARE YOU GUYS

DOING THIS?

Heather: SINCE THE

STORM, AT LEAST PEOPLE

HAVE COME TO CHRIST IN

COMA RIA RIO, AND SANTIAGO

STARTED WHAT HE CALLS A

BABY CHURCH.

HE PLACED US IN THE

RIGHT MOMENT TO HAVE A

CHURCH GIVE BIRTH.

Heather: CARLOS

RODRIGUEZ OVERSEES CHURCH

PLANTING ON THE ISLAND FOR

THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS, AND

SAYS MARIA HAS PAVED THE

WAY FOR ENORMOUS SPIRITUAL

GROWTH.

NO ONE WOULD SAY THAT

HURRICANE MARIA WAS A BAD

THING IN A WAY.

IN THE HUMAN PERSPECTIVE,

OF COURSE.

WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WITHOUT POWER, BUT FROM A

SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE,

EVERYONE SAID, NO, THAT IT

WAS A BLESSING.

Heather: SOUTHERN

BAPTISTS SEE A UNIQUE

OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE PLANTING THREE NEW

CHURCHES THIS YEAR, AHEAD

OF SCHEDULE, AND THEY'RE

POURING HUNDREDS OF

VOLUNTEERS AND RESOURCES

INTO THE TERRITORY IN

HOPES OF WINNING MORE FOR

CHRIST.

THIS PASTOR IS WORKING

WITH MISSION TEAMS FROM

THE STATES AND WATCHING

PEOPLE COME TO THE LORD.

THIS IS ACTUALLY

BRINGING A REVIVAL TO THE

ISLAND.

JUST BY HELPING PEOPLE PUT

A TENT UP, JUST CUTTING

THE TREES, JUST STUFF THAT

IS SIMPLE, PROBABLY, FOR

MANY OF US, BUT FOR THEM

IT MEANS A LOT.

Heather: IN SAN JUAN,

MARIA DAMAGED PASTOR GREAT

GABRIEL'S CHURCH, BUT IT

DIDN'T STOP CHURCH MEMBERS

FROM DISTRIBUTING FOOD AND

WATER RIGHT AFTER THE

STORM.

WE CONVERTED THE CHURCH

INTO A DISTRIBUTION

CENTER, AND WE MADE SURE

IT WENT OUT AS QUICKLY AS

POSSIBLE.

Heather: EVEN SIX

MONTHS LATER, PRADA SEES

MARIA AS A HUGE

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

CHURCH.

BUT HE IS ALSO UP AGAINST

SOME TOUGH REALITIES, AS

ARE OTHER CHURCHES.

MORE THAN 100,000 PUERTO

RICANS HAVE LEFT THE

ISLAND SINCE MARIA, AND

HIS CHURCH HAS LOST PEOPLE

AND OFFERINGS.

BUT HE SEES BELIEVERS MUST

SEE EVEN THE MIGRATION AS

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

GOSPEL.

HE IS TELLING CHURCHES

WITH MEMBERS THAT LEAVE

FOR THE STATES, SEND THEM

AS MISSIONARIES.

THAT IS A GAIN, ALWAYS.

TEACH THOSE PEOPLE THAT

THE LORD IS MOVING YOU TO

THE U.S., TO THE MAINLAND,

AND YOU HAVE TO BE

CONNECTED WITH THE CHURCH.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE A

MISSIONARY THERE.

Heather: CHURCHES ARE

ALSO ACUTELY AWARE OF

SEVERE MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS

RIGHT NOW.

SURVIVING THE STORM AND

ITS AFTERMATH HAS LED TO

WIDESPREAD DEPRESSION FOR

MANY, AND A SPIKE IN

SUICIDE ATTEMPTS.

BUT IN THE MIDST OF SUCH

SUFFERING, BELIEVERS ARE

SEEING A HUNGER FOR THE

GOSPEL AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

THAT BUSINESS AS USUAL

JUST WON'T WORK.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO

BE AN EXPEDENTIAL

EXPLOSION OF MANY NEW

CHURCHES AND MANY PEOPLE

FOLLOWING GOD'S CALLING TO

PASTOR CHURCHES, TO BE

THAT EVANGELIST THAT GOD

WANTS YOU TO BE, JUST

TO -- I THINK PUERTO RICO

IS GOING TO BE A MAIN

FOCUS POINT IN THE

CARIBBEAN TO KEEP SHARING

THE GOSPEL EVEN MORE.

Heather: LAST MONTH

PASTOR GEORGE BAPTIZED 10

NEW BELIEVERS, AND HE

KEEPS THIS DISPLAY OF

LOCKS, WITH THE KEYS

THROWN AWAY, AS A REMINDER

OF NEW SOULS THAT CANNOT

BE SEPARATED FROM THE LOVE

OF CHRIST.

WE ARE EXPERIENCING A

REVIVAL, LITERALLY A

REVIVAL.

WE SEE PEOPLE HUNGRY WITH

HOPE.

Heather: FROM THAT

PERSPECTIVE, IT IS A

MOMENT OF HOPE IN PUERTO

RICO RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE AS

THE ISLAND IS REBUILDING

PHYSICALLY, IT IS ALSO

REBUILDING SPIRITUALLY.

REPORTING IN PUERTO RICO,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: FOR THE FIRST

TIME, A SITTING U.S.

SENATOR HAS GIVEN BIRTH TO

A CHILD.

SENATOR TAMMY DUCKWORTH

GAVE BIRTH TO A DAUGHTER

ON MONDAY.

SHE IS HER SECOND CHILD

WITH HER HUSBAND BRIAN.

SHE SAYS SHE IS WORKING TO

CHANGE THE SENATE RULES IN

ORDER TO BRING HER BABY ON

TO THE FLOOR WHILE THE

CHAMBER IS IN SESSION.

THE RETIRED U.S. ARMY

LIEUTENANT COLONEL LOST

BOTH LEGS WHILE SERVING IN

IRAQ.

SHE SAYS SHE IS HARDLY

UNIQUE AS A WORKING MOM.

HER CHILDREN, SHE SAYS,

MAKES HER MORE COMMITTED

TO DOING HER JOB.

> ADOPTION ADVOCATES ARE

SOUNDING AN ALARM ABOUT

THE THREAT FACED.

THEY MAY BE FORCED TO

CLOSE BECAUSE THEY

WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET

LICENSES IF THEY ONLY WANT

TO PLACE CHILDREN WITH A

HOUSE THAT HAS A MOM AND A

DAD.

KELLY CLEMENTE SHARED HER

STORY.

SHE HAD AN UNPLANNED

PREGNANCY IN COLLEGE, AND

SHE CHOSE TO PLACE HER

CHILD WITH A FAITH-BASED

COUPLE.

IT IS NOT FAIR TO TAKE

AWAY A BIRTH MOTHER'S

RIGHT TO A FAITH BASED

AGENCY.

BECAUSE SOME OF THESE

WOMEN ARE AT THEIR WEAKEST

MOMENTS SPIRITUALLY, AND

THEY'RE SPIRITUALLY DYING.

AND IF YOU CANNOT PROVIDE

THEM WITH SPIRITUAL HOPE,

WHICH, IN MY MIND, THAT IS

THE ONLY REAL TYPE OF HOPE

THAT THERE IS -- IF YOU --

JESUS IS HOPE FOR ME.

AND IF YOU TAKE CHRIST OUT

OF THAT CONVERSATION IN

THOSE ROOMS WITH THESE

WOMEN, WHEN THESE WOMEN

ARE AT THEIR LOWEST

POINT -- IF YOU TAKE

CHRIST OUT OF THE

CONVERSATION, YOU'RE DOING

THEM A DISSERVICE.

Efrem: AND THEY POINT

OUT THAT LGBT PEOPLE HAVE

AGENCIES THAT HELP THEM.

> IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

INFORMATION ABOUT

ADOPTION, YOU CAN DO IT,

OF COURSE, ON AN INTERNET

SEARCH, BUT THERE IS

NOTHING LIKE HEARING FROM

SOMEONE WITH PERSONAL

EXPERIENCE.

HERE IS CHARLENE AARON.

I LOVE, LOVE LIFE.

Charlene: TO HEAR

BILL AND ALICE TELL IT,

JUST BEING TOGETHER IS

NOTHING SHORT OF A

MIRACLE.

HE WAS THE LOUD, CRAZY

TYPE, WHERE YOU HEARD HIM

FROM HALF A MILE AWAY AND

YOU KNEW THAT HE WAS

COMING.

FOR HER IT WAS, LIKE,

THAT'S TOTALLY NEVER GOING

TO BE A GUY THAT I WOULD

NEVER DATE OR MARRY, SO

WHY WOULD I SPEND A TON OF

TIME WITH HIM.

Charlene: BUT LOVE

TOOK OVER.

AS A MARRIED COUPLE, THE

PASTOR AND NURSE WANTED

MORE.

PEOPLE GROW UP WANTING

TO HAVE CERTAIN CAREERS.

MY CAREER THAT I REALLY

WANTED, I WANTED TO BE A

MOM, AND THEN IT DIDN'T

HAPPEN.

HONESTLY, THERE WERE

THESE MOMENTS WHERE WE

WERE, LIKE, GOD, IF YOU'RE

SO GOOD, WHY DO YOU KEEP

US FROM WHAT IS GOOD?

Charlene: THE

DEDICATION TO THEIR DREAM

LED PHIL AND ALICE TO

PURSUE ADOPTION.

A PREGNANT WOMAN IN THEIR

CHURCH WANTED TO PLACE HER

CHILD FOR ADOPTION.

SHE HANDED ME A CARD

AND IT SAYS, WE'RE 37 1/2

WEEKS PREGNANT AND LOOKING

FOR A FAMILY TO ADOPT.

Charlene: NINE DAYS

LATER, KINSLEY GRACE WAS

BORN.

PHIL AND ALICE DECIDED TO

ADD TO THEIR FAMILY AGAIN,

BUT THIS TIME THEY DIDN'T

WANT TO DO IT ALONE.

ALICE HAD AN IDEA: WHY

DON'T THEY USE YouTube

TO PUT THEMSELVES OUT

THERE.

PHIL WASN'T SO SURE.

WHO WOULD WATCH, WHY

WOULD THEY WATCH, AND WHAT

WOULD BE THE POINT OF THEM

WATCHING?

Charlene: ALICE

PREVAILED, AND SOON WITH

FULL TRANSPARENCY, THEY

WERE DOCUMENTING THEIR

INFERTILITY TREATMENTS AND

ADOPTION.

ALONG THE WAY, THEIR

YouTube AUDIENCE BEGAN

TO GROW.

AND THEN SOMETHING THEY

DIDN'T SEE COMING.

WE GOT CONTACTED BY A

BIRTH MOM, ASKING IF WE

WOULD CONSIDER ADOPTION

AGAIN.

Charlene: A WOMAN

FOLLOWING THEM ON SOCIAL

MEDIA ASKED IF THEY WOULD

BE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING

HER BABY.

THEY PUT TREATMENTS ON

HOLD AND BEGAN DOCUMENTING

THEIR SECOND ADOPTION.

AND THEY SHARED IT ALL,

HIGHS AND LOWS, WITH RAW

EMOTION.

LIKE, WE'RE MEETING OUR

DAUGHTER TOMORROW.

TOMORROW.

IT'S GOING TO BE HARD NOT

SEEING HER FOR ANOTHER 12

HOURS.

WE WANTED TO BE HONEST

WITH YOU GUYS ON HOW

EMOTIONAL THINGS ARE, AND

TELL YOU, LIKE, THE TRUTH

AND NOT JUST GLAMOURIZE

IT.

Charlene: AS THEY

EDITED AND UP LOADED

VIDEOS, THOUSANDS

SUBSCRIBED TO THEIR

CHANNEL FOR UPDATES.

THE BIRTH MOM ENDED UP

GOING AND SIGNING PAPERS

TODAY.

THE OVERWHELMING

MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WERE

COMING TO OUR CHANNEL AND

COMMENTING, SAYING, THE

LOVE THAT YOUR BIRTH MOM

IS SHOWING IS MORE THAN I

THINK I COULD EVER SHOW MY

OWN CHILDREN.

AND THE SECOND WAS: I NOW

WANT TO GO AND LOVE PEOPLE

IN THAT SAME WAY.

AND SO WHAT WE DID BY

TELLING HER STORY WAS

ACTUALLY PULL OUT OF THE

HEART OF WHAT WE WANT TO

DO, WHICH IS MULTIPLY THE

LOVE THAT IS IN US.

Charlene: YOU'LL SEE

THE FAMILY WEARING

T-SHIRTS THAT SAY "LOVE

MULTIPLIES."

WHAT STARTED AS AN

ADOPTION FUNDRAISER HAS

NOW EVOLVED INTO A

FULL-TIME CALLING.

PHIL AND ALICE WANTED TO

BECOME THE RESOURCE THAT

THEY NEVER HAD.

IF SOMETHING DOESN'T

EXIST, IT IS OUR

RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE IT

HAPPEN.

AND SO WE CREATED "LOVE

MULTIPLIES," AND IT IS A

PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO COME

AND FEEL ENCOURAGED AND

SUPPORTED AND EDUCATED

ABOUT INFERTILITY, ABOUT

ADOPTION, AND ABOUT

GROWING HEALTHY FAMILIES.

THE NUMBER ONE COMMENT

THAT WE HEAR BACK IN THIS

PHASE OF LIFE OF TRYING TO

BUILD A FAMILY BUT IT IS

NOT HAPPENING IS, I JUST

DON'T HAVE ANYONE THAT I

CAN TURN TO.

NO ONE UNDERSTANDS MY

GRIEF.

Charlene: AND WHAT IS

NEXT FOR THE COUPLE:

STILL FOLLOWING THEIR

DREAM.

SINCE OUR INTERVIEW,

ANOTHER FERTILITY

TREATMENT.

AND ANOTHER HEARTBREAK.

SO IT'S NEGATIVE.

I'M SO SORRY.

Charlene: BUT THEY

KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN, AND

MAYBE MORE SURPRISES FOR

THEM IN THEIR FUTURE.

HAPPY ADOPTION DAY!

CAN YOU SAY WORLD?

WORLD ADOPTION DAY!

Charlene: AND WE'RE

ALL INVITED ALONG ON THE

JOURNEY.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT

ADOPTION MEANS?

IT MEANS SMILEY FACE.

Efrem: HOW CAN YOU

NOT LOVE THAT STORY.

WE'RE CHEERING YOU ON.

> STAY WITH US, THERE IS

MORE OF CBN "NEWSWATCH"

Efrem: I'D LIKE TO

LEAVE YOU WITH THIS PRAYER

TODAY: LORD, I ASK FOR

NOTHING FOR MYSELF TODAY.

I SIMPLY PRAY YOU WOULD

MAKE ME THE ANSWER TO

SOMEONE ELSE'S PRAYER.

I HOPE YOU'LL MAKE THAT

PRAYER FOR THE REST OF THE

HOURS THAT REMAIN IN THE

DAY, AND POSSIBLY EVERY

DAY.
