Yulia’s Story

Hi, my name is Yulia. I live in Zhitomir Area. I would like to share my story with you. I hope it will help somebody.

In the fall of 2015, I learned that I was pregnant. I didn’t know what to do. I wondered why it happened to me at such a time. My husband and I couldn’t find mutual understanding. I filed for divorce. We already had two sons, (waited long eight years for them to be born in our family) I felt very down. I didn’t have anyone talk to and share my doubts. Finally, I decided to have an ABORTION in Zhitomir clinic.

At the abortion clinic I met a counselor Natalia. Fifteen-twenty minutes of our conversation changed my decision. I realized I needed this child. With tears of joy I went home.

MTU supported me a lot during my pregnancy. They checked on me. They cared for me, even though they didn’t know me. Before my delivery I received a layette set with beautiful baby clothes, toys, and bottles. I never regretted the choice I made to have this child.

June 30th 2016 became one of the most important days of my life: I gave birth to my baby boy Makar. Every time I look at him, it feels like he is saying: “Mommy, thank you for giving me the joy of life”. At present my youngest son is 10 months old. He always smiles at me. This smile is the most precious for me.

In April 2017 I received Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and Savior. I thank God that everything changed for better. Relationship with my husband improved. Now my husband and I are raising our three sons in love.

I often think: “It is so good that there is Mission to Ukraine; there are counselors who offer a helping hand. It is so good that there is God Who Transforms lives”.
