On a typical afternoon at the center, coloring books were sprawled across the waiting room floor as one of our team members stepped over Lego blocks and crackers to make her way to the counseling room. Natatia* had come for an appointment and brought four of her kids along. While they played, she sat across from a peer counselor learning about the different abortion procedures and the potential risks of aborting her unborn child.
She had experienced an abortion when she was 16 years old and was now contemplating having a second one. Her mom had forced her to have the first abortion, but this time, she was feeling like abortion was the best solution to her problem. She had six kids under the age of 13 and was being pulled in so many directions.
Natatia had minimal family support, and her finances were stretched. The ultrasound tech began the scan anticipating the gestational sac that we typically see. However, there were two sacs on the screen – her 7-week-old twins! She exclaimed, “I can’t abort two babies!” Suddenly, the thought of aborting twins helped her realize the humanity and priceless value of her unborn children. This is just one of many stories that reveal God’s faithfulness to us. Through Him all things are possible.
