A Mother Makes A Christ Like Sacrifice To Save Her Unborn Baby

Updated on July 13, 2012
Chiara and her husband Enrico
Chiara and her husband Enrico | Source

Chiara Corbella a beautiful young Catholic woman made a very big sacrifice, one could even say it was a Christ like sacrifice . But unlike Christ she was not nailed to a Cross but was giving a great cross to carry. In reading this true story you will see the real love this woman had for her God and its precious life that only God can give to a woman and mother.

Chiara and her husband Enrico were Pro-Life speakers throughout Italy and would also spread their message through their music they would play at these Pro-Life rallies. Chiara so wanted to be a mother but had lost two babies at birth because they were born with such birth defects that they died within moments of birth, their names were David and Maria.


But both Chiara and Enrico never stopped trying to have another baby and soon they had found that again Chiara was pregnant with a baby boy who was very healthy , but in finding that out the doctor also found that Chiara had a very aggressive form of cancer and would need treatment soon to fight this type of cancer. She was told that this treatment would harm if not kill her unborn baby. She told the doctor she would wait till her baby boy was born before any treatment for her cancer was done in order to protect this precious life growing within her.

When her beautiful baby boy was born and she and her husband named him Francisco then she began treatment for her cancer, but the doctor had told her that she had waited far too long and he had not much hope that this treatment would help her at all. She lost her eyesight in one eye sometime later and was also losing her battle with this form of cancer.

When her baby boy Francisco was a little more that 12 month old her health was really going downhill very quickly, Chiara wrote a letter to her baby boy Francisco, in a line from this letter she said to her baby boy that she would be going to heaven to care for his brother and sister David and Maria . She told Francisco “you stay here with dad I will pray for you”.

After one long and courageous battle for more than a year of fighting this cancer Chiara passed away one week after she wrote the letter to her baby boy Francisco. This beautiful woman and mother knew how important and precious this life inside her was that she was willing to give her own life to save her baby boy that she so wanted and loved .


So the next time you see Pro-Lifers in your town or city think of this beautiful woman and mother, and what she did and gave up to keep her baby safe and be born healthy . There are some who are ready to throw their babies away so quickly and easy, too bad they could not have thought a moment before they went and made a baby and took control over their sexuality and made better choices than they did, than they wouldn’t be throwing a baby’s life away has easy as they throw away the trash.

      Well it's 4:40 in the am here, I can't sleep so I popped on hubpages and you had commented on one of my blogs some time ago. I just decided to gather my thoughts and start blogging again. I came across this article of yours and it brought tears to my eyes. I am pro life also, and I am not happy for her circumstance of trying , loosing two and then having a healthy baby and can't enjoy him but it was so worth her sacrifice,. that little boy is going to grow up knowing his mom gave her life for him. What greater gift is there?

      Hi LongTimeMother nice to see you, sometime it is just not to be no matter how many prayers you have said. And all though it was a very difficult path to walk she did it to save her unborn baby, she saved what meant more to her than her own life. Thanks so much for the vote up ! Also thanks for stopping by and to for your nice comments !

      I was so hoping that the end of this story would be Chiara and her husband Enrico being rewarded for all their hard work and passion as Pro-Life speakers throughout Italy plus their persistence and strength in continuing to try to have a healthy baby despite losing two already.

      I held my breath as I read on, hoping you would tell us that all their prayers were answered and that they now credit God with Chiara's return to perfect health and the many years of loving family life they have a chance to share. But no.

      I am so disappointed for poor Enrico. It must be extremely hard for him as his heart bursts with love for his child, but grieves for his wife at the same time. What a difficult path to walk.

      What a wonderful hub, in your easy to understand yet very entertaining, endearing, and moving way of story telling, you describe very well this story.

      I love the end part about not putting babies in the trash- yes you are a soldier of Christ indeed in your little way which is so sweet and easygoing, not harsh but not mincing words either.

      An inspiring story...unusual thing to do, Blondey

      I'm glad I could finally read some of your wonderful stories. Sorry I haven't been by much- you know what's been going on. Looking forward to keeping up more.

      Hi Brett nice to see you, Yes i do agree with you sometimes things do happen, that is just the way life goes sometimes. But it is still nice to see a mother like this that thinks more of her unborn baby than her own life. Because there are some that don't care at all. Thanks so much for the shared, up, awesome, beautiful, tweeted and pinned ! Also thanks for stopping by and to for your nice comments !

      What a beautiful story. The things that parents do for their children are often unmentioned miracles. While I admire the story, and agree that life should be respected, not everyone who ends up pregnant was careless ... sometimes things don't work, sometimes people lie, and sometimes things just happen. In some situations this can work out well, but in others the child may suffer far more and for longer if born (especially in less developed countries, or unhealthy relationships etc). It isn't perfect, I don't take a side in this, I just think that nothing is black and white in this world.

      What an amazing story that shows the sacrifice a mother will make for her child. I have children and there are no words to describe the intensity of the love I feel for them. Sadly this situation occurs when a woman is pregnant and diagnosed with cancer and is forced to make a choice. Often they have other children at home to care for so the decision is not always an easy one. What a beautiful and inspirational story! Voted up and shared this one!!

      Hello, kashmir. All gifts come from God, including life itself, and we are so blessed to receive them. Chiara, in her faithful and unselfish way, recognized that the Lord's gift of a 3rd child was given for a specific reason, and she made it her focus and promise to nurture the precious life within her, putting it before all else. True faith is never questioning God's motives in our lives, but instead following where He leads us without hesitation. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring story of love and faith. Voted way UP and awesome. :)

      I don't understand why you all find this story so wonderful, I find it extremely sad and depressing. A life was lost to a slow painful and horrendeous death. After having suffer the lost of two children she then had to die herself. What; what is good about such unspeakable cruelty?

      Hello kashmir,

      What a wonderful article and beautiful example of God's Love! It is always a miracle when God creates a new life in the womb, and this woman lost two babies at birth! .....How heart breaking that had to be!! And then, another miracle.....Chiara blessed with another baby, who was born healthy. I know Enrico must have been completely crushed when he lost his wife. Oh, how she loved her baby boy!!!.....And, what a truly loving sacrifice she did make for her baby!......waiting until after he was safely born, because she knew he might not make it if she had her cancer treatment while she was still carrying him!....Wow, what a wonderful witness to how God's love in us works, when we give our lives completely over to Him!

      Thank you so much for writing this inspiring true story! Although it is sad, it is also very uplifting.

      God's blessings to you & take care, Helen

      Hi Peggy nice to see you, yes you are right she was very faithful to her belief in God and faithful to that baby growing inside her.

      Chiara was obviously a very courageous, loving and faithful woman to have made that decision along with her supportive husband. No doubt that she is enjoying heaven along with her two other children and will await the rest of her family's arrival someday in the near future. She understood the bigger picture of eternal life. Up votes!

      Kash, this was such a great article. Had to tweet it. Voted up and all across but funny. This story has touched my heart. What more of a precious unselfish act could a person do? Wow, this blows my mind and it is inspirational that wonderful beautiful souls are still out there in the world. Just a wonderful story all around. A very sad ending, but the ultimate gift one could give. He was so blessed to have such a wonderful mother that only wanted life for him. Very touching:)

      Hi Pollyannalana nice to see you, I think after losing two babies that this one was very special to her and she wanted to save this baby no matter what. I hope some baby killers read this and will understand what they are doing is very wrong. Thanks so much for stopping by and to for your nice comment !

      "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"... What a great and faithful lady. Thank you for sharing her inspiring story. I hope women who (as you said) do not value a child's life hear this and become changed in the heart.

      This really was a super sacrifice that I don't think many could make. It probably won't mean a thing to the baby killers but it means a lot to the ones who believe all life deserves a fighting chance.
