Lisa and Nick Leathard didn’t want children, but that abruptly and dramatically changed. Experiencing severe stomach pain, Lisa was rushed to the hospital. Imagine their shock when the doctor told them she was pregnant, and the baby was coming—now! Lisa had no idea. Toby was perfectly healthy, and they welcomed him with open arms and lots of love. Parenthood was such a blessing, they’ve had a second child, Noah. Because of Lisa’s situation, she regularly takes pregnancy tests to know whether or not she’s expecting. This is another example that God knows what will bless our lives better than we do. Imagine the lost miracles through abortion because parents didn’t feel ready for a baby. The Lord always knows what’s best, even when circumstances are shouting “no!”
