“Allison” didn’t know whether we offered abortions. She had just left the abortion clinic because she said that it felt unsafe to her. She took the postcard referral from John, who faithfully ministers outside the clinic, and she came to CHOICES. We explained our pre-termination screening, and she agreed to stay for the appointment.
Through many tears, Allison described her difficult upbringing and told us about her only close family member’s death by suicide. She shared about her bisexual lifestyle and the new relationship with the father of the baby. The father wanted to make a commitment to her and have this child. She was not open to talking about adoption. She was not open to the Gospel, but she did allow our staff to pray with her.
Allison was loved and not judged at CHOICES. She saw her baby on ultrasound. Her tears were embraced, and at the end of her appointment, Allison hugged the staff and thanked them. Still unsure of what she should do, Allison agreed to return two weeks later for another ultrasound, and she chose life for her baby and had committed to a relationship with the father!
Thank you for loving Allison, her beautiful perfect son, and the father of her baby. For we know in part, but He knows in full. Therefore, won’t heaven be a glorious place?
Until there are….
