To whom this may concern:
This letter is to let you know how grateful I am to have worn the precious feet on my lapel at work. I had bought it at a fair from a pro-life tent. This fair was at the John’s Hopkins University of Maryland. (ed. note: The “Precious Feet” pin shows the exact size and shape of an unborn baby’s feet at 10 weeks after conception).
I’ve had questions of what it meant and where I got it. This gave me a lot of opportunity to explain to young and old what it was. I think it is a superb idea.
In my own testimony seven years ago, I was in an automobile accident and in the hospital. I found out that I was pregnant about 12 weeks (3 months and baby was fine). My boyfriend at the time now my husband was not ready for a child (I had two boys already from previous marriage). [He] Persuaded me to have an abortion. No matter how much I tried to not do it even with his mother trying to talk him out of it, he insisted and I went ahead and did it. I will never forget that experience ever in my life. I promised myself and God that I would never again do something that cruel in my life. Time went by, things happened between us. He went away to his country and came back and within a month I became pregnant.
This time it was different. I had my pin which I was wearing for about 2 years. When he tried to pursued me this time I refused. It did not matter to me what he was saying or threatening to do. All I know was that I had something so precious inside that only God could have put there. When I had my first abortion (the last) I did not know what a baby looked like at 10 wk. or 3 mos. inside the womb. When I became pregnant with this child which is my number 4 baby I had full knowledge of it and I could not come to myself to do something like this, especially for the same person! We struggled with it throughout the whole pregnancy and I refused until the end. This baby won. When won my heart my soul my everything.
My daughter was born on June 27th 1996, 8 lbs. 3 oz., 21 inches long at Franklin Square Hospital in Maryland. She is now 7 Months old (Zuleika Monica Baldeo).
Enclosed please find a picture of the little one whom your little feet saved which is my own.
