Review for Pregnant Choices, Evans, GA, USA
"I can't do this! I'm still a student. I'll get no support from him. What will my parents say? I know abortion is wrong, but maybe it's my only solution." These were the thoughts racing through Sherri's mind when she saw those two lines on the pregnancy test.
Sherri quickly turned to google and found Pregnant Choices. When she called, she heard a kind voice on the phone explaining the importance of confirming pregnancy with an ultrasound and having a non-judgmental place to learn the facts about each option. She scheduled an appointment. The morning of her appointment Sherri's mother noticed something wasn't right. Sherri broke down and told her mom about her pregnancy. Her mom decided to accompany Sherri to her appointment. When the ultrasound began and the tiny flicker of the baby's heartbeat showed up on the screen, the awe in Sherri and her mom's eyes was evident. The miracles that unfold in the ultrasound room continue to amaze us! Sherri left that day feeling very nervous about telling her religious father, but determined to give her child life.
A few weeks later, during a follow up call, Sherri scheduled a follow up familial ultrasound. We can do familial ultrasounds to allow a woman's support system to see the life growing in her womb. During that ultrasound, her baby was bouncing all over. Sherri's father uttered the truest words, "this is life," and promised her they would get through this as a family.
The start of a new child's story, thanks be to God!
