I was a seventeen-year-old high school dropout addicted to drugs, living with my drug dealer boyfriend. I didn’t think my life could get any worse. Then I found out I was pregnant. My mom had told me if I had a baby she would kill it, so the next day I took an abortion pill. After that, my life spiraled out of control. I tried to commit suicide several times. I remember overdosing on drugs and being taken to the hospital but somehow I kept coming back to life.
At 19, God turned my life around. My boyfriend was radically saved by God and his drug addiction instantly left. He took me to worship nights and at first all I could do was sit there and cry. Soon after I started going I gave my life to Jesus. I experienced God’s unconditional love for me, He freed me from drugs and transformed every part of my life!
One day I decided to open up to a woman in church about my abortion. She began to pray for me and I was instantly taken to heaven in a vision where I saw my baby. Relief flowed out of me like a river when I saw my beautiful baby boy with Jesus. God told me I could name him so I chose the name Gabriel. Just before I left heaven I noticed I was dressed completely in white. God said, “You have been redeemed and made whole!”
