I COULD HAVE MISSED OUT!
I have just kissed my little boy goodnight—my little boy whom I almost aborted 10 years ago. I was 25 years old, enjoying a promising career and had only known the father for six months. My friend advised an abortion. At the time it would have been a convenient option to have the “contents of my uterus” removed.
Let me tell you, the “contents of my uterus” is a beautiful little boy who is so caring, loving and thoughtful that he deserves the world! I listen to his prayers at night and see them miraculously answered. It sends chills to my soul to think of what, not only myself, but my family and the world would be missing out on if those “contents” had been removed.
I praise God for not only giving me a conscience, but also for giving me the courage to not make a choice, but instead to follow the pre-destined path laid out before me.
The father of my boy is now my husband and we have been blessed with three more beautiful children. Our lives have certainly changed over the years. I recommitted my life to the Lord after the birth of our second child.
After many tear-filled prayers, my husband gave his heart to the Lord soon after our third baby came into the world. The Lord has blessed us immeasurably for trusting our God-given instincts and not following worldly opinion.
