“I don’t want to see that,” I said as I pushed Helen’s hand away when she tried to show me a model of what my baby looked like in the womb.
I didn’t want to see it because I didn’t want any of this to be real. I was overwhelmed and hurting. I couldn’t believe that I was pregnant again. I already have two children. I didn’t know how I was going to manage taking care of another child all by myself. Abortion seemed like my best option.
Helen listened to me with great compassion. She reminded me about God’s goodness and His plan for me and my children. Her words were just what I needed to hear.
At the end of our meeting, I asked Helen if I could see the model baby. I held it in my hand and we prayed together. At that moment, I knew I couldn’t end my baby’s life.
I’m still really scared. Being a single mom of three children seems too much for me to handle. But, I am also hopeful. I remind myself daily that I am not alone. Thankfully, God is with me and so is Life Forward.
