Jennifer Christie was a married mother of two travelling on business when she was brutally attacked and raped by a stranger. A month later, while on a cruise, she discovered she was pregnant. She spent a week listening to medical staff advise her to terminate her pregnancy.
Jennifer was scared and confused but was comforted when her husband told her: “We can do this.” Knowing that they could do this as a team and that her husband would love and accept her child, Jennifer felt her love for her baby begin to grow. She told the medical staff when she was released, “If you ever think about this again, if you ever wonder what happened to me — I had a beautiful baby in October 2014.”
Though her pregnancy was not easy, Jennifer did give birth to a beautiful and very loved baby boy. She writes, “Our little boy may have been conceived in violence, but he is a gift from God — a delicious gift that filled the hole in our family that we never realized was there. He made us complete. I’m so thankful to have been connected to other mothers who became pregnant by rape as well. We are survivors. Not victims. My son has healed me.”
