At LifeNews over 22 years we’ve reported on occasions on which some mothers seem to have an abortion pretty cavalierly without any consequence to the taking of their little boy or girl’s life. Then you hear stories like this of women who desperately want to be a mother, by who have been victimized by the tragedy of miscarriage.

zaundiaZaundia Klingbeil, from Fargo, North Dakota, has suffered 13 miscarriages since she and her husband had a son 11 years ago. The couple now hopes to adopt a baby girl, who is due soon, but the costs of adoption are sky high.

The couple can’t afford the adoption fees and travel costs, and the little girl is expected to have expensive medical issues. Klingbeil is so dedicated to this adoption that she was willing to sell her wedding ring to finance it, though members of her community have helped her family raise thousands to help defray the expenses.

Having children has been very difficult for the North Dakota woman: “If I had another baby that I loved half as much as I love our son, all the pain would be worth it, all of it.” She calls her 11 year son Elias a miracle child, “He was our first baby, we had no clue the road we had ahead of us.”

“To hold your baby on your babies in your arms, and realize you will never know what they would have looked like on their graduation,’ she told Valley News Live through tears. “You will never experience what their favorite birthday cake is.’

Here’s more on how this dedicated mom didn’t have to sell her ring after all:

The community has stepped up to help a local woman willing to sacrifice her wedding ring to adopt a baby. Zaundia Klingbeil was planning to sell her wedding ring online in order to get enough money for an upcoming adoption.

Following a story on Valley News Live last week, Klingbeil’s Go Fund Me page received more than $4,000 dollars in donations. A local business matched those funds, bringing her total to $8,000.

Due to the generosity of the community, Klingbeil will be able to keep her ring and have the funds to adopt a baby. The baby is due any day.
