Cecily came back today for her ultrasound. She was accompanied by her sister and one of her children. Although she was tearful during her ultrasound, she was still very adamant about having an abortion. She does not feel able to continue this pregnancy because it is a result of assault. Please pray that her heart will be changed and that she comes to embrace this child.
Velina came to our center seeking an abortion. She is recently divorced and has three small children. Her ex-husband is the father of this baby and she does not want to continue because it will be a painful reminder of him. Since we were not sure that Velina would be willing to return for another appointment, we offered her an ultrasound today. When she left she was still struggling to open her heart to her baby. Mother Mary please heal Velina from the trauma in her life and open her heart to the child that God has blessed her with.
Ellie came to our center quickly after finding out she was pregnant. In her state of crisis, Ellie has not fully processed her emotions; she only said she wanted the abortion and she wanted it fast. Convinced her financial situation and relationship will not accommodate another child, Ellie sees no option but abortion. Our counselor slowed Ellie down and walked her through all of the emotions associated with her pregnancy. She will be returning for an ultrasound next week. We pray that Ellie’s heart and mind will be opened to the Truth about the life inside of her.
