She Said Yes

“It’s only a blood clot,” Carol said as she waited for her sonogram. She refused to believe otherwise because if she did, she would have to believe the truth: that there was a baby growing inside her.

Carol wanted an abortion. The father of her 4-year-old son didn’t want another baby.

But in a moment’s time, one look at her over 10-week-old baby jumping and waving at her on the monitor, Carol stopped, looked up and said, “I won’t kill my baby, I won’t kill my baby.” His heartbeat rang in her ears and in that moment Carol broke the stronghold and said “yes” to life.
