“Lacy” had been planning to abort her pregnancy. However, the technician at the abortion clinic thought she detected two heartbeats, so she suggested Lacy confirm that with the local pregnancy resource center. Stunned, Lacy left the abortion clinic in a daze.
Already in her late thirties and a mother of two, Lacy couldn’t imagine the possibility of twins. Bewildered, she made an appointment and came into our women’s care clinic.
Our staff warmly greeted her and performed another ultrasound… and indeed there were two little heartbeats and two sacs! Lacy couldn’t believe it. Our staff also confirmed that Lacy was over seven weeks along in her pregnancy. Teary, she said that because there were two babies and not just one, she couldn’t go through with an abortion. The babies’ father agreed they had to keep their children.
Lacy said that even though she was unemployed, she believed this was God’s plan, affirming her faith in Him. Over the next few months, she continued to keep in touch with our staff, thanking us for our prayers and support, saying, “Thanks so much for thinking about me, praying for us, and supporting me. It means the world to me.”
It’s through your ongoing support that Lacy felt supported and loved enough to choose life for both her babies. Thank you for giving so generously to our mission of serving families and rescuing children from abortion. On behalf of Lacy, thank you for your commitment to provide life-affirming, Christ-centered care to at-risk women. We truly appreciate you! In Lacy’s words, “Thank you for giving me that wonderful opportunity to hear their heartbeats. That was the most incredible moment of my pregnancy.”
