Alveda King, the niece of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., wrote an op-ed for Fox News, explaining why she is forever grateful on Mother's Day.
"On Mother's Day this year I want to thank my mother for the most precious gift: My life," she wrote. "She gifted me with my life, even though at first she was uncertain about it, and even though she had to change the plans she had made for herself and her future."
Mrs. King explained that her mother, Naomi Barber, fell pregnant with her in 1950 when she courted her father, Rev. A.D. King.
Barber was a freshman at Spelman College in Atlanta and she had big dreams, King said.
"But as their relationship got more serious, they made the choice not to wait until the wedding night. When she realized she was pregnant, her first thought was to have an abortion.
"My grandmother suggested seeking the counsel of their minister, who just happened to be the man who would be my paternal grandfather, Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.
"My Uncle Martin – Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. – famously had a dream that helped change the nation. My grandfather also had a dream, and it helped save my life.
"Daddy King, as he's known in the family, told my mother, 'Naomi, you can't abort this baby. I saw her in a dream three years ago. She is not a lump of flesh. She is a little girl with light skin and bright red hair.' That was me."

Snoop Dogg asked for prayers for his mother, Beverly Tate, in an Instagram post on Friday. The 49-year-old rapper shared a photo of his mother along with the caption: "I need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you."
Snoop, real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., didn't share details about his mother's health status.
In another post, he wrote "Mama thank u for having me could of gave me up but u raised a family."
Snoop credited his mother for his apology to Gayle King after he dissed her over questions she asked about the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant.
In a video on social media, Snoop said, "Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you."
"She didn't say I was wrong," Snoop said of his mother. "She just said, 'You know I raised you better than that. You're a representation of us. Every woman that ever crossed your life, you're a representation of that' – so I got it," Snoop recalled during his appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk."
In a Mother's Day video last May, Snoop expressed his love and devotion for his mother.
