The Desperation

On Tuesday, I was sent to Choices; Sr. Dorothy asked me to stand on the other side of the sidewalk and pray.  As I did this for at least an hour, I witness a woman come out with two children: a little girl around age 4 and a little boy around age two. She stood outside for at least thirty minutes talking on the phone.  She got my attention and kept it for the entire time she was there. Even though I was on the other side of the sidewalk, I was still able to hear her conversation, which was in Spanish. It broke my heart to listen and share her despair; she was talking to her baby’s father basically explaining what they had told her.  From what I heard the man was not very supportive. She explained to him that “this” was not only her problem and that he could not leave her alone. He hung up a couple of times and she called him back, telling him she wanted to die, that she felt alone. She was in tears. I continued to pray and kept my eye on her; I reached out to her after she got off the phone but she was not very receptive. Both of her children were by her side and were witnessing their mother’s despair in choosing life for their sibling. I am not sure what happen with these women. I do know her story, but I am sure that she is not the only one. All the women that go in to these abortion clinics are living an agony, the same agony that Jesus felt when Satan was tempting him. My pray is that just like Jesus overcame temptation and allowed God’s will to be done this woman may do the same. 
 May the Lord bless you and keep you may he grant you the desires of your heart.

Your Sister In Christ,
