I was put in a position by my Dr while I was only 15 and pregnant with my first son who is now 11. I was only 3 months pregnant and found out I was Pre-Eclamptic and turning Toxomic quickly and that this would kill us both if I did not terminate the pregnancy as he called it. I was young and so scared and yet so firm in My faith that I knew instantly my response and that we would both make it thru. I also knew at all cost including my life I would not abort my son. It was the toughest pregnancy i've ever experienced and by Gods will we both survived. I went toximic at 4 months and went on to carry him till i was 7 months and then we induced an had a 36 hour hard labor to wear I delivered and my son was a fighter. he stopped breathing in my arms and as they grabbed him I coded too. I remember praying before I coded and the whole time I could here them working on me. I just told GOD I knew there was a bigger plan and I know in my heart his will be done and not my own. I came too 6 hours later in agony and screeching for my son to find him sound asleep in the nursery doing great.We stayed their 14 days and it took me four years before I recovered but God hold me everyday and we are here for a reason. I knew from the instance I found out I was pregnant i would give my life for my children and I did just that. I couldn't imagine my life without my son or the incredible fight we gave for it to be.My father even disowned me for about 4 years because of my decision to fight for my son and to raise him as a teenage mother. But every bit of our struggle is worth it. I know have three sons and a wonderful husband. Those pregnancies were hard but none compare to my glorious fight for my son Nathan.

Ty marina I hope it reaches us all. I just want to encourage all to never give up and keep fighting. We as mothers have an instinct God gave us and I followed mine which blessed me with my son. And then 6 year later my other two boys. :-)

i am moved by your story because not only did you make a decision that was truly a risk but the fact that you got pregnant again and again. i had a great pregnancy but a horrible delivery and i am scared to invoke on that journey again. i think you are a brave and courageous women considering you were only 15 when you had to undergo such a thing. i hope your story reaches more hearts.
