Kimberly Henderson had gone to the abortion clinic feeling conflicted about the terrible step she was about to take. But she suddenly changed her mind when a card dropped from her bag with a bible verse in it.
Mother of three, Kimberly Henderson, became pregnant with her fourth child in 2013. However, the joy of having another baby was short-lived because Henderson had recently discovered that her boyfriend had been cheating on her.
She was already catering for three children, and with her boyfriend now out of the picture, adding a fourth child at that time would leave the family in a precarious financial situation.

Henderson thought long and hard of a solution to this but ultimately realized she would have to terminate her pregnancy.
Aborting her baby was not something she believed in or wanted to do, but she believed doing it was in the family's best interest. So, she mustered up the courage to visit an abortion clinic.
SIGNS FROM GOD
Henderson sat at the abortion clinic in a pink T-shirt, soaked with tears. Her heart was broken due to what she was there to do, and she could not stop crying.
She sat at the reception all alone, and while people were eating and laughing, Henderson was conflicted about whether she should go through with the abortion or not.
The mother felt like she was about to make a terrible decision even though she had seen signs from God telling her not to go through with it.
Early that morning, one of her daughters woke up sick, and she had to find a sitter before leaving the house. On her way to the clinic, she got lost, and then her car broke down for like fifteen minutes.
She ultimately got to the clinic late, but they still let her in, and Henderson sat at the reception praying to God to give her the strength to walk out of there.
After about seven hours of waiting, she was called to the desk by a lady who asked for her identification card.
The mother of three floundered through her wallet trying to find her driver's license when a card left on her table at work by a couple on the previous Saturday night fell out. The card had their church name on it, and on the back was a popular Bible verse, Isaiah 41:10, which read:
"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."
Henderson knew God was speaking to her, and just at that time, two of her friends called to encourage her to keep the baby and explained that there was a reason God gave her that gift.
Afterward, the mother of three told the lady at the desk she had changed her mind. As she walked out of the clinic, Henderson was approached by a teenage girl who asked if she was still going through with the abortion.
Henderson told her she was not going to, and the teenager replied she wished she was as brave as her. The mother of three told her she was brave and could do the same, but the teen had to do it because of some severe circumstances.
As Henderson turned to leave, the teenager declared that when the mother of three sees her baby's face for the first time, she would be glad she walked out of the clinic. Henderson walked out of the clinic tearfully, but she felt like a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders.
On September 12, 2013, Henderson welcomed her fourth child, Vaida Everly, with both her best friends by her side.
Henderson told her story by posting the accounts of her day at the abortion clinic and the picture of her baby on her Facebook page.
She subsequently praised her family and friends for their support and declared that her baby Vaida was on the earth for a purpose.
She also posted a video of herself singing to one-year-old Vaida at midnight on YouTube, and the clip generated a lot of positive reviews from people worldwide.
Now a mother of four, Henderson concluded that Vaida was meant to be born and that no matter what a person's circumstances are, God does not make mistakes, and he is here for them.
