28 Dec Renee’s Story
During the consultation, Renee showed interest in the adoption literature. Although termination was her intent, she was uncomfortable with the thought of an abortion. She said she would strongly consider placing the baby for adoption because of her financial situation. Renee was offered a sonogram and she was surprised to see a viable fetus of almost 12 weeks! This further complicated her thoughts. She left the sonogram room with pictures and information about her options, but she doubted whether or not her initial decision was the right one.
Renee said that she would go home and carefully weigh her options. She came back for a follow-up appointment in two weeks and was still undecided. Unfortunately, Renee did not show up for her next appointment and we lost contact with her after a few attempts. We prayed for Renee and eventually she called us to say that she had decided to have her baby! Her family and friends were supporting her and she had started her OB care.
