Abortion or Not

When I became pregnant with my third child my husband said that he would leave me if I kept the baby. We had married young and had finally got the first two kids into school. Times were rough and I could understand where he was coming from but couldn't fathom getting an abortion.

Finally, when the time drew near that I wouldn't be able to get an abortion (according to the laws at the time, which have changed) I was about 4 months pregnant. I went to bed that night determined to make a discision. I prayed all night until about 4 am. Finally I heard a male voice that said "Do you doubt my hand?". I thought, okay so that must be it and I shouldn't do this thing. Then I thought...No, I really need to know for sure.

I never did get that answer but what I got was the same voice saying, "There are angels, these are innocent". I don't know what that means but I fully understood that I couldn't possibly get rid of my baby. My husband didn't leave about I had decided and also this baby girl has been my joy and love.

I don't know what I would have done without her. She is now 27 years old and has very much angelic qualities to her.

She is strong in her belief of God and helps many people every day.
