Today’s Save Story: Katrina

“Pregnant? Again?”

Looking at the positive pregnancy test clutched in her hand, Katrina felt a familiar sense of dread wash over her body.

This had happened before, and the only option Katrina could imagine was abortion.

She had already experienced two pregnancies, one ending in a miscarriage, and the other in an abortion procedure.

She was committed to her life in the military, and her life did not feel like her own, having given it over to service for her country.

Between the trauma of her past pregnancies and her present circumstances, Katrina saw no other way.

Setting the pregnancy test down, she picked up her phone.

She did not know that the simple Google search she was about to perform would change the course of her life.

Less than two weeks before, Heroic Media had launched a campaign with our brand new Pregnancy Help Center partner in El Paso and, before Katrina even knew she was pregnant, they were ready and waiting for her.

When she pulled up her Google search results for abortion information, she clicked on a Heroic Media ad and connected with our partner.

Katrina arrived for her appointment and was surprised at how warmly she was welcomed.

Her experiences of her previous pregnancies had left her feeling cold and unseen.

The warmth of this Pregnancy Help Center began to plant the seed in her own mind that she was beautiful and capable.

Even so… she felt that abortion was still the only choice she really had.

It was not until she saw her ultrasound that she was given an entirely new perspective.

Not one, but two tiny humans danced on the screen!

She was pregnant with twins!

Rather than feeling overwhelmed, her heart leapt for joy!

Katrina knew these two little ones needed her and, with the sure support of the Pregnancy Help Center, she began to believe she could love and care for them.

Her heart was moved toward her children and she made the courageous decision for life!

Three lives were saved that day.

God’s goodness is truly unbounded and His mercy from everlasting unto everlasting!

Romans 8:32: “He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all,
how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?”
