Christopher's Story: Making His Family Proud

As a child, I can remember my mother always being there for me. See, I was one of those lucky ones. I was almost another one of those “what ifs.” What if I keep him instead of aborting him? What if he could end up being president or a professional football player?

Fortunately for my mother and me, Pregnancy Resources helped my mom to make life a decision. My life. See, I could have been the product of an abortion. My mom was being pressured by her family to abort my life so she could go on with hers.

I have been told how my mother’s parents welcomed me and loved me and regretted they tried to convince my mom to have an abortion. They love me with all their heart. As I grew older, I thought back on how I would not be here if it wasn’t for God. He brought me here because He knew that I have a great purpose in life.

Every day, I think about all that I have accomplished and how none of this would have ever happened if God had not spoken to my mother and the wonderful people that helped her through the pregnancy center.

Now, I’m off to attend the University of Wisconsin Platteville. I’m planning on playing football, and majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I hope to keep fulfilling my dreams and the plans the Lord has for me - along with continually making my family proud.
