Brianna was going to be kicked out of her home if she had a child, so without support and without hope, she scheduled an abortion. She was on her way into the Beast's Lair - the abortion clinic. It was there she would helplessly give her child over to the Beast and she herself would be devoured by the guilt and pain that would follow. It was on her way into that dark place when Beauty suddenly stopped her in her tracks....
Brianna was on her way into the abortion clinic, when she turned and saw a group of people standing outside, praying. One of them approached her:
"You don't need to do this. There is another way."
They gave her information for the Women's Center, and so she turned and walked away - the Beast growling behind her, robbed of its expected victim.
When she walked into the Women's Center, her heart softened as she was embraced with kindness and the warmth of true concern for her, her future, and the future of her child.
She was given a same-day ultrasound, since her abortion was scheduled for the next day. When she saw her Baby on the ultrasound screen, Brianna gasped in amazement and burst into tears - The Beauty of Life conquered the Beast.
God is Beauty. The baby reveals beauty by his very being, his face, his hands, his tiny feet. The family, those you are in relationships with teach you how to cultivate and respond to beauty and validate that anyone who could create such beauty must be beautiful
