When opening the mail last week, we received a picture of a sweet baby girl along with a thank you letter from her mother, a former client. Almost a year and a half ago, this client visited one of our centers and asked for an ultrasound to determine if she was too far along in her pregnancy to have an abortion. She was angry and abortion minded when she walked in the door, but after sitting with a counselor, getting information, and later receiving an ultrasound, she decided to choose life.

This week a mother called one of our centers. She was in search of a counselor that could talk with her daughter, who recently found out she was pregnant and had scheduled an abortion. She had tried to share the truth about life with her daughter, but realized she was too close to the situation to be heard.
A former client came into one of our centers this week, and she was not alone. It was not her 10 month-old baby that she had with her, it was a friend. Over a year ago, this former client was pregnant and was being pushed toward abortion by her family. At Life Centers, she found a counselor and advocate who helped her choose life. Now she is leading her friend, who is in a similar situation, to Life Centers to receive the same compassion and counsel.
Her friend met with the counselor and has decided not to have an abortion. The counselor encouraged her and connected her with resources, including a housing opportunity. How wonderful that the Sanctity of Human Life is not only being shared by our counselors, but our clients as well!
