American Idol Contestant Shares Her Pregnancy Story

For You From The Word

To the faithful you show yourself faithful.
(Psalm 18:25)

For You To Think About

Parris TassinFive years ago, when 18-year-old Paris Tassin faced an unplanned pregnancy, doctors told her to abort the child. They cited hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and feared the worst.

Paris refused.

Today, she has a healthy 4-year-old girl who inspires her singing. The only medical complication that resulted from her daughter’s condition is hearing loss, for which she wears hearing aids.

And now, Paris has an opportunity to sing in Hollywood.

Last week, Paris shared the story of her refusal to have an abortion during her appearance on American Idol. Judges were so moved by her emotional rendition of “Temporary Home” by Carrie Underwood that they selected her to move to the next round.

“I sing for my daughter,” Paris told the judges. “She’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”

For You To Pray

Faithful Father,
Thank You for helping Paris carry her baby to term.
Let her story inspire other women to choose life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
