Noelle came to CompassCare several weeks ago to confirm her pregnancy. Her plan had been to get a chemical abortion if she was not yet past the ten-week gestational limit. Noelle said she cannot imagine being a teenage mother. She worried her parents would not accept her child or support her in raising him.
Noelle’s ultrasound exam revealed a seven-week-old baby. When she heard the heartbeat she said, “That makes me almost cry.” When discussing options with her nurse, she expressed interest in learning more about adoption, saying,
“My boyfriend and I have talked a lot about that actually!”
When her nurse asked her about her spiritual life, Noelle said she grew up in church. She listened intently as her nurse shared the news of Christ’s free gift of salvation.
Several weeks later, Noelle was determined to have her baby! Happily, Noelle reported that her parents are supportive of her decision and she will be going to an OB/GYN to start prenatal care. Praise God for preserving the life of Noelle’s baby, sparing both Noelle and her child from abortion through the work of the Church.
