A Glimpse

The deep circles under Megan’s eyes seemed to match her demeanor; a loss of energy—a loss for words. She was breastfeeding her nine-month-old, and it never occurred to her she could get pregnant so soon. Her husband was unaware of the pregnancy, and she certainly wanted to keep him in the dark. He had so much on his plate, and the weight of positive pregnancy test would send him into a tailspin. But there was another reason she hadn’t shared the news: he would never agree to having an abortion. This was something she must do in secret, alone, and soon.


She was breastfeeding her nine-month-old, and it never occurred to her she could get Hope Pregnancy Centers, Inc.t so soon. Her husband was unaware of the pregnancy, and she certainly wanted to keep him in the dark. He had so much on his plate, and the weight of a positive pregnancy test would send him into a tailspin. But there was another reason she hadn’t shared the news: he would never agree to having an abortion. This was something she must do in secret, alone, and soon.

Once Megan felt comfortable, all her fears started to pour out of her. Her client consultant listened intently and she tried to convince her consultant (and perhaps herself) that she had no other choice. She said she’d have to act quickly to get the abortion pill, or take the four-hour drive to Shreveport, Louisiana for the nearest abortion procedure after six weeks. She agreed to have a free ultrasound with her intention to determine which abortion procedure she’d choose.


But seeing her child on the ultrasound screen ignited a love she didn’t anticipate. Before she even asked how far along she was, it was clear she was marveling at the life growing inside her.

Megan would be in for less sleep for a while, with a newborn and a toddler, but she realized it was only a season. She had a lifetime of love to give her son or daughter, and a lifetime she had a front-row seat to watch and grow, and treasure.

Your investment in HOPE PC is how God often shows women a wider perspective than the immediate worries they face. This glimpse into new life shows them a new path for their family.


Thanks for lighting the path for Megan and so many beautiful women like her!
