When “Lexi” found out she was pregnant, her circumstances could not have been more overwhelming. She was trying to find permanent housing while rotating between friends’ homes. She’d just been in a car accident and lost her job. And on top of all of that, she’d recently broken up with the father of her baby.
But when she saw her baby’s face and arms and legs on the ultrasound monitor, she smiled at the sight – despite her circumstances.
As Lexi’s family rallied around her, our clinic staff also continued to reach out to her. And Lexi chose life for “Baby Asher.” She was even connected to a family through the local church, who supported her throughout her pregnancy, celebrating Christmas with her and her other children.
And then the unthinkable happened. Four months after Asher’s arrival, Lexi found out she was pregnant again. Already exhausted, she called our clinic totally distraught.
Our staff performed an ultrasound, and Lexi watched Asher’s baby brother or sister moving and wiggling their tiny arms and legs. Once again, Lexi struggled to choose between what she knew was right and what she felt she could handle. However, as our staff and her family continued to support her, Lexi chose life for the second time in less than a year.
It’s through your ongoing support that Lexi felt supported and loved enough to choose life for both her children. Thank you for giving so generously to our mission of serving families and rescuing children from abortion. On behalf of Lexi and her two new babies, thank you for your commitment to providing life-affirming, Christ-centered care to at-risk women. We truly appreciate you!
