“Faced with an unplanned pregnancy as a teenager, I wasn’t much different than most of our clients. The difference was I didn’t walk into a Women’s Resource Medical Center, but rather an abortion clinic. The abortion clinic counseled me to believe that an abortion would solve all of my problems and that it was the best decision that I could make at such a young age. That is where I chose to abort and that is where my nightmare began. I did not stop bleeding after going home from the procedure. I found out later that it was due to the abortion doctor leaving parts of the baby inside me. By the time I went to the emergency room, I was near death.
I could only bury the guilt and shame of ending a life for so long. Five years later, I was invited to church. I listened to the Pastor as he delivered a pro-life message with a portion dedicated to post abortion women. I contacted our local Crisis Pregnancy Center to get Post Abortion Counseling. Soon after, I began working at WRMCSN. I am an advocate for the things of God associated with the issue of life, assisting families who are facing the decision to abort.
God put a calling on my life 24 years ago of Isaiah 61:1 -3 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” and for every moment I praise God for His goodness!”
