In February 2015, a young couple came to the hospital to apply for abortion. From talking to them, our counselor learned that they had been together for about 3 years, they were happy, and planning for marriage and a family, but not anytime soon. They were working to achieve their dream of leaving Macedonia to live and work in western Europe. Just when they were on the brink of realizing their dream, this young girl found out she was pregnant.
They faced a great challenge and had a big decision to make. In the beginning it seemed almost certain that abortion was the best solution for them. However, after hearing from our counselor of the risks and consequences of abortion and how it could affect their lives in the future, they seemed to change their decision. Then, after three days they returned to have the scheduled abortion. Preparations began for the procedure and the nurse sent them to pay for the abortion. This girl went to pay, but never returned.
They contacted us a few weeks later and told us that they decided to keep the baby and were preparing for their wedding. They were happy with their choice, and today they rejoice in their wonderful gift from God. Dejan was born in November, 2015. We are no longer in contact with them, and thus do not have a photo.
