Mariah was at a loss. Already the mother to 7 children, she could not imagine having another one.

Mariah and her boyfriend were not financially stable and she did not think it was right to bring another child into the situation.

Mariah shared the news of her pregnancy with her boyfriend.

They both agreed that their best – and only – option was an abortion. Mariah pulled out her phone and typed “abortion” into the Google search bar.

She clicked on a link at the top of the page, a Heroic Media ad, and was connected with our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Chicago.

Mariah made an appointment for the same week, wanting to have an abortion as soon as possible.

Mariah and her boyfriend came to the center together, both of them filled with emotion.

As soon as they sat down with the client advocate, they both were overcome.

They shared their financial struggles and that they could not imagine having to provide for another child.

The client advocate listened with compassion and shared with them the many community resources available to their family.

But she knew that the most important thing she wanted to help them to recognize was the miracle of their baby’s life.

When they saw the ultrasound screen, they could not believe their eyes.

Revealed to them was their perfectly formed 13-week-old baby.

After seeing the beauty of this tiny human, they chose life for their child!

Thanks be to God!
