Ultrasound Images Help Mom Decide

When Jane* visited the LifeNetwork pregnancy center in Colorado Springs recently, she shared with us the circumstances of her life. Jane was already the parent of a beautiful four-year-old child from a previous marriage. She expressed her desire to be responsible, but she didn't see how that would be possible, knowing the financial and other struggles as a single parent she already had encountered.

Jane's past history in LifeNetwork records revealed that she had actually been to the pregnancy center on three previous occasions.

Two of those three times resulted in Jane deciding to abort her child. She needed help recovering from those abortions emotionally, but she became visibly upset at the suggestion of attending one of our post-abortion healing groups.

As compassionately as possible, we visited with Jane while waiting for the results of her pregnancy test. When the test showed positive results, Jane burst into tears.

She was torn between the struggles she was already having as a single parent and the thought of taking care of another baby. The peer counselor wisely scheduled Jane for an ultrasound the next day.

Before Jane's appointment, our staff met to pray she would see a clear picture on the monitor. We prayed the baby would be very active. We also prayed Jane's heart would soften to receive her baby.

When Jane arrived for her appointment, she was visibly apprehensive and still undecided about whether or not she would have a third abortion.

To our delight, those prayers were answered. The new ultrasound machine provided through Focus on the Family's Option Ultrasound™ program showed a healthy baby, moving, kicking and putting on an incredible show.

The pictures were the most clearly defined of any of our recent clients. Not only was the twelve-week-old baby very active, you could actually see it crawling.

Jane's face reflected her changing emotions as each image appeared on the screen. Tears intermingled with smiles as the light turned on in her heart. She was indeed carrying a baby, and a very playful one at that. She could not abort then, not after she’d seen the image of her child so clearly.

Life Network and The Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center want to thank Focus on the Family for this incredible life-giving gift.

As a recipient of one of the first ultrasound machines in the Option Ultrasound™ Program, we want to let you know that this incredible "window to the womb" has already begun to save lives in our community.

*Jane is a ficticious name for our client. Christine Reyes is the Executive Director of LifeNetwork Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
