God changes the hearts of abortion-minded women and men through Cobb Pregnancy Services and saves the lives of unborn children. Here is how the Lord worked in one of our clients, Domonique

I was 23: without a job, without a car, without an education. The father of my two-year-old was in jail and I was only going to be able to stay in my mother’s house for four more months. Then, I found out that I was two months pregnant. I didn’t know what to do–I didn’t know how I was going to handle another child, let alone support it financially. I was terrified.

I’ve always been against abortions, but I was stuck. I thought if I told my mother, she would force me to move right away. I had nothing and nowhere to go. As much as I didn’t want to do it, I thought abortion was my only choice.

I decided to go to Cobb Pregnancy to make sure the Dollar Store test I had taken was accurate… it was. But while I was there, I met Anne and Rebecca. They listened to my story without judging me. They supported me when I didn’t have anyone else. And, they helped me make the best decision of my life.

I eventually told my mother about the pregnancy because I needed a ride to the doctor. Instead of kicking me out, she gave me an extra year as long as I got a job, went back to school, and began saving up for a car. I’ve now done all of those things.

And… I had my son Kylar on April 12, 2012 (just three days before my birthday). He has been a complete blessing to me. I have to thank Anne and Rebecca for welcoming me, listening to me, and supporting me. Kylar and I are forever grateful.Dominique

 

From all of us here at CPS, thank you for making it possible for us to minister to those who need it most!

Story submitted by a client

A little over a year ago I started feeling like something strange was going on in my body. I wrote off the fatigue and listlessness as a sickness, or something. I started to get scared and when my cycle was a day or two late, I got terrified. We were too poor; I wanted to go back to school; my boyfriend and I just got engaged and were planning our wedding. There were so many things we were trying to do at the moment. We didn’t have time to even think about a pregnancy.

Two in-home pregnancy tests later and I was bawling on our bed, waiting for my fiancé to come home from work, trying to figure out some way to tell him. We wanted to be absolutely certain, but we didn’t have the money or the insurance needed to get examined. Thankfully, I found Cobb Pregnancy Services. I found out they offered sonograms, and I signed up to get one. My fiancé came with me that morning.

As the technician walked us back to our room, she was excitingly telling us stories of the women she had examined. She made us feel comfortable and easy about the procedure. As I lay on the table, she bubbled on about the woman right before me being pregnant with twins and how exciting it was to see something like that. She instantly found our little baby, a tiny little smudge on the computer monitor. He was so perfect and tiny, a little jellybean.
We watched him for a few minutes and the technician started getting things wrapped up when she stopped and said, “Would you look at that.” My heart stopped. “There’s two of them in there. Two twins back to back in one day. Amazing.” I have to admit, I started crying.

My identical twin boys are now 5 months old: Thaddeus and Theodore. They’re beautiful and the beautiful women at Cobb Pregnancy let me see them first!
