I work in a crisis pregnancy center, and I would like to relay the story that is dearest to my heart. The mother was 40 and the dad 49. She was recently divorced and he recently widowed. They each had three boys. Hers were from ages 11 to 20, and his were 12 to 20. When they discovered her pregnancy, they were mortified and didn’t know how to explain the situation to their children–not to mention the trying thought of starting over with a baby at their ages!
Yet they did choose to marry and give their child life, and the mother gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
Why this is so precious to me? That girl was ME!
I am now the mother of four and grandmother of 11. Think of the number of people who wouldn’t be here now and for future generations had they not chosen life!
