|It’s the week leading up to Mother’s Day, Baby Bottle Blessing kickoffs in many of our supporting churches, and our KY Gives Day effort on May 11th to raise funds to support our ultrasound services. There is a lot going on!
But in our Clinic, it is the same steady, faithful work of caring for those who are faced with a huge first decision in motherhood- whether or not to give their child life. Our clients don’t ease into parenting their unborn children. For a variety of different reasons, our clients are very often planning to abort or considering it as an option, so their first choice for their child is as big as parenting decisions come—a life and death one. Typically, in panicked desperation, they jump right into that decision within minutes of a positive at-home pregnancy test. But if they come to Assurance before the abortion clinic, often God uses Assurance’s services to help the mother slow down, connect with her child, and consider the implications of what she is planning for herself and her child. As you celebrate the importance of mothers this Sunday, join us in gratitude for the incredible impact we often see from the moment a pregnant mom sees her child through an ultrasound and her mothering instincts overcome her fears, doubts, and circumstances to compel her towards life for her child. Here is a story of that unfolding in our Clinic.
We heard from this mom this week. We are thrilled to report that she has delivered her baby, and everyone in the family is doing well. What a gift that news is to our team!
Thank you for all the ways you support our ministry and make moments like this one in our ultrasound room possible.
