Waterleaf April "Miracle of the Month"
In Matthew 28:5 we read: "Then the angel said to the women in reply, "Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified." As Christians, we know Easter is a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life. Daily, through the intercession of Christ and support of our parish partners, we witness the miracle of new life- life chosen over abortion. Please meet our April “Miracle of the Month,” and rejoice with us in the spirit of the Easter season.
“Iris” came to Waterleaf scared and conflicted. Pregnant quickly after beginning a new relationship, she was undecided about her pregnancy and being pressured to terminate. At her ultrasound appointment, she had difficulty looking at the image of her child on the screen. Teary-eyed, she explained feeling abortion was her choice. Her Waterleaf client advocate spoke with her at length about her fears and options. Additionally, Iris received support from a family member in attendance, who urged her to carry the baby.
During the immediate three-day follow-up with Iris, she had time to think. Still feeling conflicted, she expressed that her family values were against abortion. Ultimately, after continued outreach and support, Iris bravely chose life and recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. In addition to the support she received at our clinic, Iris is taking advantage of the resources and classes offered at the Waterleaf Education and Resource Center.
Thank you for your support and prayers and together let us rejoice in the hope, renewal and new life that comes during the Easter Season.
