Early in 2015, a young mom came to the hospital for abortion. She already had 2 children, the youngest of which was 9 months old. She was afraid, feeling that it was too soon to have another baby, especially since she is alone with the children most of the time. Her husband travels out of the country frequently for work.
Our counselor showed her the model of a baby at 12 weeks’ gestation, and she was amazed by the development of the baby. When her husband came, she showed him the model, telling him that this is what their baby looked like already and he smiled. The counselor encouraged her that she does have the strength and courage to have this baby. She left the hospital that day unsure, but called four days later to tell us that she decided to keep her baby, saying “It’s your fault” with a smile on her face. Baby Kristina was born in September, 2015.
