Godís Light~ Mariahís letter
you Small Victories
This is the family we helped this past spring outside Hope
abortion mill in
. I briefly spoke with the
mother going back inside. The husband called the mother on her cell
phone while she was inside the abortion clinic and she told her husband
that there was a woman outside offering an ultrasound and free help and
was praying for Mariah. The husband then told his wife to ďgrab
his daughter and take her to the woman that was standing outside praying
"If I can throw a single ray of light across the path of another;
if I can aid some soul to a clearer side of life and duty, and thus
bless my brother; if I can wipe from any human cheek a tear, I shall not
have lived in vain while here."

Dear Angela Michael,
In April 2008 my mother, boyfriend, and I all stepped out of Hope
Clinic and walked into your van. There were you and your daughter and
you gave me my very first ultrasound. I had no idea that I was that far
along and that the baby had been that well developed.
I had been keeping my pregnancy a secret and it was just the day
before when I revealed to both of my parents the truth. I donít think
I had felt a more painful hurt knowing that I had broken my parentsí
hearts so bad, being their baby girl at just 16 getting pregnant. I
never cried so hard in my life, and I still cry to this day thinking
about how bad I hurt them.
But I do cheer up when I think about how big of a light you and
your family have been to mine. It was you who told me to look at this
baby as a blessing and I have ever since you said that.
Itís funny how God can put a complete stranger in your life
that youíve only seen twice and make them out to be one of the biggest
blessings that youíve received.
The food was so delicious at your husbandís family restaurant
that you guys treated me, my parents, my boyfriend, and my future
in-laws to. And your family was just so beautiful. I just want to say
thank you for all that you have done for me and my family. You truly are
an angel sent from God to help my mom and especially me see that keeping
this baby was the right thing to do.
Oh yeah, Iím 8 months pregnant now and my doctor made my due
date September **. Iím going to have my baby at ********Hospital in
. They also said that I was having a girl.
I went to the doctor today, but it was two weeks ago when they
told me the baby weighed approx 4 lbs 11 oz. Iím going to name her
Keira Lavern. My sister picked out Keira and Lavern is her fatherís
My mom just threw a baby shower for me on Saturday, August the 9th.
It went really nice. I never had a birthday party where people bring me
gifts in my life, so when I received all of the beautiful, thoughtful
gifts, I couldnít help but realize how much love me and my unborn
child have and how much God has blessed, truly blessed.
But as far as things go, Iím pretty much set for the baby.
Thereís still little things I need to buy like little brushes and
combs, socks, and baby detergent, but Iím so fortunate that God
blessed me with a job this summer being pregnant that I can afford to
buy little things and be able to provide for my new arrival.
Again thank you so much Angela and may God continue to shine His
light on you and your beautiful family.
