Early in 2015, our director was a guest on one of the national TV programs where she shared about Lydia and about life versus abortion. One couple who saw her on TV contacted us the next day, asking if they could come and talk. They had misunderstood our mission and purpose, and visited our Skopje office thinking we could offer assistance with abortion.
Already raising four children including a set of twins, they were pregnant with a second set of twins and were going to have an abortion simply because in their eyes and in the eyes of this culture four children is already too many for one family, much less six! Our counselor talked with them, explained that we do not help clients obtain abortions, and talked with them about their situation and their options. They listened to her as she explained the risks and consequences of abortion, talked about the value of life, and gently suggested that there was no reason not to choose life for these babies. That day they did not make a decision, and our counselor was somewhat discouraged.
However, two days later they called to say that they had decided not to have an abortion! Fast forward about 6 months, to October 20, 2015 when two precious baby girls were born into this world full of life and potential! The entire family is overjoyed and full of gratitude for the loving words of life spoken through “Lydia”!
