The first step toward healing was found for a mother this past Thursday in Pensacola.  Ingrid, one of our most dedicated sidewalk advocates recounts the story of this encounter in the attached video.  A mother who a year ago lost her child to an abortion at this very facility, returns to grieve the loss of her child.  With her she, brought a candle and flowers to place at the vigil site in memory of the child lost that day.  She came to find the sidewalk advocate she spoke with the day of her abortion.  She came to find help, as she grieves the loss of her child.  Thanks to our sidewalk advocate, Ingrid, and other vigil participants, they were able to console her and offer her hope and healing after her abortion.  They gave her information about Project Rachel  and Rachel’s Vineyard and one of them took her to one of our local pregnancy resource center’s for additional counsel.  Abortion is a traumatic experience for the women, men, and families that experience it.  Let us ALWAYS be there to meet them with love and mercy.  Let us pray for this mother and all the other mothers and fathers who have lost a child to abortion.
