Abigail Borah Save Stories Leave a Comment

Miriam was heartbroken.

The man she had loved for over 10 years had been cheating on her.

He had been lying to her as long as he’d known her, fathering several children with other women.

Miriam was devastated. She had been so thrilled for this pregnancy, for their child.

But now she could not face having this connection to the man whom she discovered had hurt her so deeply.

Miriam Googled for information on abortion and was connected through a Heroic Media ad to our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Pittsburgh.

Miriam made an appointment with the center, and when she arrived, she told the counselor that she had been so excited about this baby, but the shocking news of the infidelity had made her question everything.

The counselor listened and walked with Miriam to the ultrasound room.

Together they watched as the sonographer showed them Miriam’s beautiful 20-week-old baby, perfectly formed.

Miriam, weeping at the sight of her little child, exclaimed through her tears that she could never have an abortion!

When the counselor followed up with Miriam a few days later, Miriam said, “I’m really excited about my baby!

I think I just needed someone to talk to, I was so overwhelmed.

I am blessed that God pointed me in your direction first when I may have gone straight to an abortion clinic.”

Truly, God is so good!

 Proverbs 16:9: The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.
