Today while doing #prolife activism I met a couple, whom I asked what they thought about #abortion. The man answered they were just talking about it. She is 22 weeks pregnant, and their OB-GYN is recommending they abort in the next two weeks. I asked why. 1/
She said their baby has enlarged kidneys. I asked, “Bilateral hydronephrosis?” Shocked, she said, “Yes! How did you know?” I explained that my second child had been diagnosed with that in utero, that he still had it at birth and then at 9 months, it just vanished. 2/
She told me how they had tried for five years to conceive this child, that she felt in her gut that he was okay, that the doctor is making them feel hopeless and pressured. I asked if she had had a second or third opinion. She said no. I gave them resources to go about this. 3/
The woman was teary-eyed and told me she had prayed all morning before the appointment for a sign of hope, that she felt meeting me today was God answering her prayers, that all she feels she needs is a little hope. We hugged and I gave her my contact info to keep in touch. 4/
So many things went wrong today and nearly prevented me from going to activism. I dropped my coffee on my leg, but wasn’t burned too badly, husband got called in to work unexpectedly and the babysitter wasn’t available, but someone else came through. This was meant to be. /end
