“Stephanie” didn’t believe in abortion. But when she discovered she was pregnant, she felt a great deal of turmoil. Further complicating things was the fact that there was a question as to who the father of her baby was. She’d been in a relationship with someone for several years. However, soon after they broke up, she went out with someone else. Uncertain about whose child she was carrying, she felt a great deal of confusion and conflict.
Stephanie was also having financial difficulties and looking for a job. So, our staff talked to her about our Continuum of Care program and the ways we could assist her. And when she saw her baby on the ultrasound monitor, she became tearful and said, “I’m not too happy about killing a baby.”
Our clinic staff encouraged Stephanie and continued to reach out to her. During Stephanie’s second ultrasound, “Baby Paisley” was moving around and showing off. Stephanie told the staff that she and her boyfriend had reconciled, and he wanted her to keep the baby. After seeing the second ultrasound, Stephanie decided she would choose life.
It’s through your ongoing support that Stephanie felt supported and loved enough to choose life for her child. Thank you for giving so generously to our mission of serving families and rescuing children from abortion. On behalf of Stephanie and Paisley, thank you for your commitment to provide life-affirming, Christ-centered care to at-risk women in DFW. We truly appreciate you!
