“I Saw His Toes!”: Eva – A Save Story from Tampa, Florida

There are few things more powerful than seeing an ultrasound of a baby in utero.

While this baby remains, as yet, voiceless, every little wiggly movement shown on the ultrasound screen powerfully communicates this truth:

“Look at me! I’m A LIFE and ALIVE!!”

Eva’s youngest child was just nine months old when Eva found out she was pregnant again.

Not only was she unwilling to go through pregnancy again so soon – she had also just broken up with her boyfriend.

Financial constraints had forced her to move back into her parents’ house.

To say Eva was feeling overwhelmed would be a major understatement.

Eva Googled to find out about medical abortion, because, while she felt abortion was her only option, she was terrified of undergoing a surgical abortion.

Heroic Media’s OAASYS Emergency Response ad was immediately triggered in Eva’s Google search results, and she was instantly connected with our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Tampa, Florida.

Eva agreed to come in for an ultrasound – to find out how far along she was in her pregnancy.

Her motive, primarily, was to see if she met the cutoff for a medical abortion, which is 10 weeks.

If she was more than 10 weeks along, Eva told her client advocate at the pregnancy center that she would make an adoption plan.

In the words of her client advocate: “I silently prayed that this baby would be more than 10 weeks old.

“We got into the sonogram room, and the baby measured 8 weeks and 6 days.

“My heart sank and I prayed that God would change Eva’s heart toward this baby.”

God swiftly answered her urgent prayer!

He caused this little baby to communicate to his mother by wiggling his body, arms and legs.

The sonographer was even able to capture an image of his toes!

Seeing her baby reach out to her completely broke the walls Eva had erected around her heart.

She exclaimed, “There’s no way I can abort after seeing my baby dance and wiggle around!

 I saw his toes!

Eva not only made the choice to continue with her pregnancy, but also to make an adoption plan for her baby!

Praise God!

Your support of Heroic Media means that an adoptive forever family will receive this precious gift of life!

THANK YOU for helping to save the life of this baby and for putting Eva on the path toward life!

You are heroic!

who bring good news!’”
