Kimberly Henderson’s midnight video recording in which she sang to her baby daughter went viral overnight, but one of her Facebook posts has gone viral for another reason: She almost had an abortion when she was pregnant with that same child.
Kimberly Henderson posted Sunday that it was the two-year anniversary of the day she walked out of an abortion clinic, unable to have the abortion that she had planned.
“Two years ago today I was sitting in an abortion clinic thinking not having Vaida was best for me. People remember dates for birthdays, and anniversaries. Well this date is forever burned in my brain. It’s a day that I will remember and I remember every single detail of that day. I think that is Gods way of showing me that HIS plan is and will always be greater and bigger than anything and everything I’ve ever known.”
Henderson’s post went viral overnight, much like her infamous cover of the Sam Smith version of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?” Since yesterday, almost 400 thousand people have liked the emotional post in which Henderson recalls sitting in an abortion clinic for most of the day, wearing a pink t-shirt that was soaked with tears. Kimberly writes, “I hope that by sharing this that it touches someone.” Over 59 thousand additional people also shared her story. She posted a copy of what she had written two years ago.
“I woke up this morning, my daughter was sick I had to find a sitter, I got lost, my car broke down for about 15 mins and I got here late but they still got me in. I prayed God would stop and give me a sign, give me the strength to get up and walk out of here. The lady called me to the desk. Last step before you go back. I fumbled through my wallet to find my drivers license and out fell a card a couple left on the table Saturday night when I was working… It had their church name on it.. On the back was a common verse…”
The card contained the scripture Isaiah 41:10, and Kimberly Henderson said that when she read it, she knew that God was speaking to her.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
Henderson said that in that that moment, she changed her mind. She decided not to go through with the abortion. Henderson said that once she left, she felt a huge weight lifted off of her shoulders.
“This is my testimony,” Kimberly wrote. “If you have any negative comments you can refrain from making them here. I will let it be known that I do not care what people think. Hence this post.”
Kimberly explained in her post that she understands that her daughter, Vaida Everyly, has a purpose. Her name, according to Henderson means, “beautiful life,” and she says her daughter fits that description perfectly.
“And last but not least she is that beautiful baby girl I was singing to at midnight in the kitchen. The video that has touched millions of people all over the world. Singing to her in our kitchen for a memory keep sake is the reason our entire life is about to change. For the good. For the better. She was meant to be here.”
Kimberly’s oldest daughter inspired her most recent hit, “Tiny Hearts,” according to Live Action News.
In case anyone missed Kimberly Henderson’s midnight lullaby to her youngest baby, here it is again.
Hundreds of people, if not thousands, have in turn shared their very similar stories in the posts shares and in the post’s comments section. What do you think of Kimberly Henderson’s testimony about the abortion she couldn’t go through with?
