Many months before we actually opened, Marie* came with a lady from the community who had learned about our soon to be offered services. Marie’s family was threatening to “throw her out” if she continued with this pregnancy, so she felt abortion was her only option. After some time spent with Marie,* she decided to continue with her pregnancy. Recently Marie* brought her little boy to the office and we were able to hold the “first fruits” of this ministry.
*Not her real name.
