“It has feet and legs- that is a baby!”
11 weeks pregnant. That’s how far along Alisha* was when she came into our center. She was undecided on what to do with her pregnancy, and considering abortion.
After it was determined that she was 11 weeks pregnant, her Client Advocate showed her a picture of what an 11 week old baby looks like. Alisha instantly started crying and said, “It has feet and legs- that is a baby! That isn’t just a glob of tissue!” After they talked more, Alisha’s Client Advocate reassured her and said “God will be with you and help you.”
An ultrasound was scheduled for the following Monday. Alisha asked her Client Advocate to join her during the ultrasound exam. During the ultrasound, Alisha was amazed at how big and active her baby was. Earlier that morning, she received a job offer that would allow her to stay at home. Alisha looked at her advocate with tears in her eyes and said, “You told me that God had my back and He does, and I can do this.”
