“Jaycee” visited our Human Coalition Women’s Care Clinic after a home test confirmed her pregnancy. As a single mom to three rambunctious boys, including a set of twins, Jaycee believed abortion was her only option. She hadn’t yet told the baby’s father about the pregnancy, because she hoped to gather as much information as possible before breaking the news to him.
With compassion and confidentiality, a trained member of our staff met with Jaycee and educated her about the pregnancy, explaining her three options: adoption, abortion, and parenting. Although she was post-abortive, Jaycee was moved by what she learned and promised to consider all her options.
A week later, Jaycee returned to the clinic with the baby’s father. In the quiet of the ultrasound room, the couple met their 8-week-old baby for the first time. Though their nerves were high, their excitement was even higher. Then and there they chose life!Our staff continued to walk with Jaycee throughout her pregnancy, sending encouraging texts; inviting her to the clinic for various classes; and even providing her with essential baby items like bottles, diapers, and infant clothing.
Last winter, the father welcomed his first child, and Jaycee welcomed her first little girl! After three boys, Jaycee tells us, “It’s just so fun, all the bows and pink.”
Join us in praising God for this beautiful, new baby and for the courage that Jaycee demonstrated to choose life for her precious girl.
