There was just one person praying at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Marietta as nightfall approached ? it was just Grisselle, her sign and a candle.

A teenaged boy walked up and asked if he could take a picture of her sign. She said yes ? "if you'll say a prayer with me for babies in danger of abortion."

He said he wanted the picture because he knows of such a baby. His girlfriend is five weeks pregnant and scheduled to have an abortion. He wanted to take a picture of the sign that reads ?women need support, not abortion? ? and text it to his girlfriend.

When they talked again, the young man told Grisselle that his girlfriend had canceled her abortion appointment ? and the baby was saved.
