“A vision was put in me to rescue children. I had been praying one day and the Lord spoke very clearly to me, through a dream, to purchase items for a baby. I remember standing in BabiesRUs and Walmart wondering what I was doing and feeling sort of silly buying a few Onesies, baby gowns, and a baby carrier.

“I guess in my head I rationalized it, well, because we like to do that with God, don’t we? I thought that maybe I would meet someone on the street who needed these things, or maybe I would help a young, single mother,” shares Rebecca Morlock.

Rebecca Morlock has always loved the unlovable. She has always seen beauty where others have seen ugly. At the age of 28, Becky sold all of her possessions. Alone, following her vision, she moved to Pedong, India, to work alongside sick and abandoned children.

After only a few weeks in India, Becky felt something was missing. Other than blessing and encouraging kids at a children’s home, she knew there was something more. She was praying for answers looking for her purpose. “I knew that I had a heart for children, and I was praying for the Lord to bring them into my life or lead me to them,” she say.

Soon after, through a mutual acquaintance, she received a phone call. A nurse at a hospital in Kalimpong, India, contacted her because a baby was in dire need of being rescued.

“I knew I was this baby’s last chance. If I had not taken the baby, it may have been placed in a garbage can or shipped off to an orphanage in Kolkata where he surely would have died. I knew I wanted him,” shares Morlock.

She left her life in Pedong to go to Kalimpong to rescue her baby. She entered the hospital, walking past patients lying on mattresses set on blood-soaked floors.

As Becky approached the baby and mother, she learned of the birth mother’s story. Her pregnancy had been concealed the entire nine months. Only her immediate family knew because if others learned of this young girl’s unwanted situation, her family could have been destroyed, as their reputation would have been ruined.
