We are Pro-Life because first of all God gave us Life. As a child my mom taught me that abortion was wrong as she told me the story of how when she was pregnant with me a neighbor gave her some unwanted advice that she should abort me since she’d done the same 4 or 5 times already. My mother gave me life and taught me to respect life. I got married in 2005 and we had been trying to conceive since 2008 with no success. I lost my mother to a terminal disease in 2012 and fell into a depression I thought nothing or anyone could save me from. Thank God for my dad, my brother and sister and my husband who were there. We had tried to do IVF but twice did not get approved for the loan, and I thank God for that. One month after being denied for the IVF loan, I found out I was pregnant. I cried tears of joy knowing that there was life inside me. My beautiful sweet baby Leila Noemi is 11 months old now and the joy of me and her father’s life. She is so precious to us as she is the first grandchild in my family. I named her after my mother whom I know one day we will see again.
