21 Dec A Special Christmas Story – Baby Jasmine
Baby Jasmine is the little girl being held by her mother Ashley. About a year and a half ago, Ashley was overwhelmed with 4 young boys and Jasmine on the way. She came to Planned Parenthood to get an abortion because she felt like she had no other choice.
Little did she know that we had just finished our 40 Days for Life campaign. This campaign had energized our pro-life students to continue praying at the abortion facility even after the 40 Days were over. Several pro-life students accompanied Joy, our wonderful sidewalk counselor, in praying and being a physical sign of hope on the sidewalk that Friday morning.
Ashley did not expect to see them there, but when she did it offered her hope. She chose to keep her baby Jasmine because of the pro-life presence and support!
The students quickly made Ashley a gift basket to help her with her immediate needs and pro-life community members helped her through this difficult time.
Ashley is so grateful for the blessings that she received from the pro-life community that she has begun to give back to other families in need! This is the cycle of love and life that is started by your generosity and prayers. Will you help me continue this cycle?
