    When my daughter in law became pregnant in 2011, she was told very early in her pregnancy that there may be a problem and the large medical group she was with suggested an abortion. My son, knowing how I felt about abortion called me to let me know. My response to him was not to worry, that everything would be fine. I immediately researched the Saint to whom I should begin praying and I learned about Saint Gerard. I began a novena and continued my prayers. Our granddaughter was born healthy, but seven weeks early. I doubled my prayers and vowed to Saint Gerard that I would begin to hand out his medals to all mothers in need of his intercessions. I sent a card to the NICU to thank them and included some Saint Gerard medals for them. Today, my granddaughter is a healthy, loving smart little girl. I know that we have God to thank and the intersessions of Saint Gerard.
