“Cosette” dropped out of high school and left her family in order to be with her boyfriend. She was excited when she discovered she was pregnant. But her boyfriend wanted her to abort. Torn between what she wanted and what he wanted, she came to the women’s care clinic. If she chose her baby, she would lose her boyfriend. If she chose her boyfriend, she would have to abort her child.
During her appointment, Cosette received an ultrasound and was able to see her baby wiggling its tiny arms and legs. Her counselor reassured her that she wasn’t alone and there were resources available to help her restart her life while raising her baby. However, after her appointment, Cosette disappeared.
A month later, she called the clinic to tell us she’d miscarried. The staff offered her our continued support and assured Cosette she was welcome to come back and visit anytime.
Two months went by and Cosette came walking into our clinic… still pregnant! She admitted to the staff that she’d been planning to abort and was going to use the miscarriage announcement to hide her abortion. But she’d had a change of heart and chose life! We offered Cosette a second ultrasound, and she was able to see her baby already starting to smile. Cosette also shared that she’d found the courage to share the news of her pregnancy with her family, and they were supporting her decision to keep her baby.
It’s through your ongoing support that Cosette felt supported and loved enough to choose life for her baby. Thank you for giving so generously to our mission of serving families and rescuing children from abortion. On behalf of Cosette, thank you for your commitment to provide life-affirming, Christ-centered care to at-risk women. We truly appreciate you!
