The 40 Days for Life volunteers in Timisoara bring their own stories to the vigil -- impressive stories, said one of the team leaders.

"Some are survivors of abortion, others want children ... and others celebrate their parents' decision to give birth, despite the cost they had to pay."

One young mother shared her story. When her mother was pregnant with her, the doctors said it was a high-risk situation and they recommended abortion because both mother and child were in danger.

The volunteer's mom rejected abortion and decided to give her child a chance to life. The baby was born healthy ... but sadly, nine months later, her mother died.

Today, this young woman honors her heroic mother, who sacrificed everything her for her. "With joy, the team leader said, this volunteer "now promotes the value of life."
