A Life Saved!

We just heard from this grandmother-to-be today about the impact we had on a father, mother, and their unborn child:

I got a call from my son last Saturday, “Mom, my girlfriend is pregnant.” I was shocked to say the least. She has a medical condition and was told that she would probably never get pregnant. My heart sank and I didn’t really know what to say other than “I will certainly be praying for you and your girlfriend.” Then he said, “We have an appointment on Tuesday Mom to figure out what we are going to do about it.”

I was devastated because I knew what that meant. Again, I said I would be praying for them and hung up the phone and sobbed.

Then I came to church on Sunday morning and we had a guest speaker from Choices. She shared statistics and showed pictures of a baby in the womb. It was almost more than I could take but I just kept praying. After service I knew I had to get information from her that I could share with my son and his girlfriend and knew I didn’t have a lot of time to get it to them.

On Monday evening after work I dropped off the pamphlets and information with my son but didn’t really spend much time with them because they were heading out. I prayed all night and throughout Tuesday morning. Finally, I heard from him after 11:00 or so and he said “Mom, we saw the baby. We saw its little feet and hands. It even looked like it was waving at me. We are going to keep the baby. And this place is awesome. They have classes we can take so we can earn things for the baby. And they even gave us Bibles.”

My heart is so full. It turns out they had already scheduled their appointment with Choices because they thought abortion would be presented as an option. I am so grateful for the ministry of Choices and how they are blessing my family.
