Family Tragedy Saves a Life

Erika and Stephen Jones found out their baby girl would be born with Down syndrome, but the parents refused abortion. Shortly afterward little Abigail was diagnosed with an inoperable, malignant brain tumor. After birth she was too young for chemo, so the parents decided to enjoy Abigail as much as possible, posting their lives on social networks. Their situation has generated a ton of interest. One of those following the family’s tragic situation met a young girl who’d scheduled an abortion of her baby with Down syndrome. After she told the girl about Abigail and showed her pictures of the baby, the pregnant woman decided against abortion. God used a family tragedy to save this unborn baby and his mother from abortion, which greatly comforted Erika and Stephen Jones.
