What do you do when you’re a single mom with three small kiddos, a cheating boyfriend and a positive pregnancy test? For Kimberly Henderson, the only thing to do was seek help at an abortion clinic.
She couldn’t bear to face people, and the world, as a single mother with FOUR children.
Kimberly spent seven hours in the waiting room of an abortion clinic, trying to convince herself that she was OK with what was about to happen.
“I sat in the abortion clinic for nearly 7 hours. I remember wearing a pink t-shirt that was soaking wet from crying.”
There’s no doubt that Kimberly knew she was making a terrible mistake. God says He has better plans for us though, and this sweet mama is living proof of that.
“Today I was at the abortion clinic. I had my mind made up. My boyfriend was cheating on me. I have small kids, what will people think?? I kept telling myself I’m all alone I need to do this. Sitting there..I could hardly make out anyone or anything through the tears. People were eating fast food around me, laughing, texting. I on the other hand was a wreck. I kept my face down, my face was drenched in tears. I kept telling and giving myself every reason to go through with this even though I did not believe in it. I kept saying I’m on birth control this could not happen..I kept trying to justify it. But my heart was heavy. I felt like I was about to make a horrible horrible decision and God was giving me signs to not do it.”
God was literally throwing roadblocks at Kimberly all day. Everything from a sick kiddo, finding a babysitter, getting lost and missing her appointment were the signs she knew God was giving her.
