Birth Story: South Dakota

Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on June 23, 2016.


About seven months ago, a coworker told me she was pregnant and thinking about having an abortion. I told her not to. She asked why. And so I told her my story, about how my abortion still affects me years later. She decided not to get an abortion. And she actually asked if me and my fiancé would take the baby. I wanted to really badly, but we wouldn't be married by time the baby was born. She was kind of looking for other families but ultimately decided to keep the baby. Long story short, on Monday, June 20, 2016, Emma Jo was born—the first baby that my story played a part in saving. It's an amazing feeling! I bawled as I held her and it brought an incredible amount of healing. God can turn the worst of situations into a beautiful story!
