All-Star Player Supports Pregnant Teenager

For You From The Word

Mike Sweeney and family

Nineteen-year-old Virginia Hansen was pregnant. Family, friends, and even the father of her baby turned on her. She didn’t know how she could put food on the table and support her son, so she scheduled an abortion. However, on the way to the clinic, she pulled over to the curb crying, knowing she had to save her child.

Virginia ended up speaking with a volunteer named Shara at a pregnancy care center and made the courageous choice for life.

Shara and her husband, Kansas City Royals captain and Player of the Year Mike Sweeney, not only supported Virginia throughout her pregnancy, but also honored her with their foundation’s first Life Award. Virginia received gift certificates, baby items, and a $5,000 check to purchase a car.

Supporting Virginia “is probably one of the greatest things that I have done in my life,” said Mike Sweeney, named five times to the All-Star team.

For You To Pray

Lord of life,
Thank you for caring people like the Sweeneys who support those who face an unplanned pregnancy. Please continue to raise up those with a passion for life to become Birthmothers Friends.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
