One mom we recently saw in our Big Blue Bus is especially thankful this Thanksgiving, and
I would like to share her story with you.
When we first met Stephanie, she was one pill away from taking the life of her unborn child. BUT, she didn't realize that the lie she had been told about her baby being dead was not true. She had been praying to get pregnant.
It turns out that she had been to a women's clinic that was associated with one of the abortion facilities in Houston. This clinic does not provide obstetrical care.
The clinic told her to go to the other office they are associated with but neglected to tell her it was an abortion facility.
They told her that she was early enough to take the abortion pill but she remembered that a friend of hers had gone through the same thing with her pregnancy and when she sought a second opinion found out that her baby was still alive!
Danielle decided to go to Planned Parenthood for a second opinion with another ultrasound.
Thank God our Big Blue Bus was there that day! She decided to see us first as a sidewalk counselor presented her with a coupon for a free ultrasound.
She was horrified to be told about the women's clinic's association with an abortion facility and asked us if we could do an ultrasound for her. The mother and sister then prayed over her before we started. We joined in the prayer as we always pray while doing our ultrasounds.
From the moment we started the baby was visible with its little heart just beating away! Danielle, her mom and sister burst into tears of joy (so did we!).
We give thanks for Stephanie and all of the moms we have been privileged to serve and we give thanks for you!
