Blessings from a Rape Pregnancy

I recently did an interview with VCY America, one of our radio partners.  The last person to call in was Patricia who conceived a child during rape.  She followed up with an email.  Even though her mother demanded she abort the baby, Patricia said no.  She gave birth to a son and placed him for adoption.  She said, “When I saw my son, I didn’t see the rapist.  I saw my child, my own flesh and blood.”  That’s what several women in her situation have told me.  Seven months later, she met Wayne whom she married, had three daughters, seven grandkids and six great grandkids.  But Patricia never forgot her son and was eventually able to meet Bob and his family, as well as his adoptive mother.  Thank you, Patricia, for sharing your remarkable story.
