Early in 2015, Goran’s mom came to the hospital to have an abortion, and was sent to our counselor as required by law. Married, having 2 children already, she and her husband had financial challenges and felt like they couldn’t care for another child even with the financial assistance offered from the government for a 3rd child.
However, when she heard about the mental, emotional, and physical risks and consequences of abortion, and especially about the developmental stage of her unborn child, she began to change her mind. Her husband, though, was still pushing for abortion. Three days later she came back to the hospital to have the abortion, but she didn’t have enough money to pay for the procedure. She was still being pressured by husband, and was feeling like she had no other choice. Meanwhile, our counselor was praying for God to change her husband’s mind.
A few days later, he asked her for our counselor’s phone number. When she asked why, he said that he wanted call and inform us that they would keep the baby. God answered our prayers and changed his mind! She told us, “Of all the choices I have made in my life, this is the best one – to keep my 3rd child.” God has also provided in various ways for their physical needs over the past several months. Goran was born November 5, 2015.
