?It was a cold and windy day -- but a wonderful visit,? said Tibor Baksy, a 40 Days for Life board member, who prayed with 40 Days for Life volunteers in Virginia Beach.

?My daughter Isabel joined me and we met Cheri, the coordinator,? Tibor said. ?She just received news that the fourth baby has been saved since the spring campaign started. She continues to pray, hand out literature to mothers offering free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds ? motivated by God?s call and her love of children.

Tibor also met Pete, who has prayed outside abortion centers since 1973. ?He shared a story of a mother coming up to him and telling him that her daughter decided to have her baby as the result of their presence and prayer. The mother is now a proud grandparent of a saved baby.?

As for the latest mother to choose life, Cheri said the young woman was shocked when her pregnancy test showed positive ? so she rushed to Planned Parenthood for another pregnancy test and to ?make her decision about the pregnancy.?

Her biggest fear was how the father would take the news and feel about the baby. One of the volunteers said ?he is shocked as well ? but they will parent the baby.?
