"My husband and I have a son and I'm currently pregnant with our 2nd son. During this pregnancy we got news that our baby might have Spina Bifida. My heart felt like it shattered, but we gave this pregnancy to God. I was nervous but I knew that God had this.
We went to see a specialist. As she was talking to us about everything I thought of abortion. I am pro-life but for 1 second satan put the idea in my head. I reminded myself that this pregnancy was given to God and that no matter what I would love this child that we prayed for and wanted so badly. I had 2 miscarriages prior to this pregnancy. We did our blood tests, got sonograms and finished the consultation. We prayed, we encouraged each other and we told our baby we love him.
A few days later we got a call that our baby is PERFECT and there is nothing wrong with him. Sometimes we give that 1 second of negative thinking too many more seconds and end up giving in. I am so thankful that our baby is healthy and perfectly okay. There is no way I would have been able to go through with an abortion. Feeling his kicks and hearing his heartbeat makes me feel so incredibly happy and in love." - Donyale
