I’m so thankful to God and to the Lifehouse Program’s staff. These past months were very sad and harmful for me. During this time I felt like the world was about to fall in around me. I used to cry every day and night because of the problems that I was getting into. You see, I’m pregnant and I’ve been through many hard things. I never thought I would get help, but one never knows about unexpected blessings.
One Wednesday morning I was about to step into an abortion clinic for women, even though I didn’t want to. I didn’t, thanks to the words of a precious woman names Anger Minter. After speaking with her, my feelings towards my unborn child grew stronger. That’s why I felt brave enough to cross the street, go against my family’s wishes and go into A Woman’s Choice.
A Woman’s Choice is a place that helps pregnant women in their time of need. Thanks to another lady I met there, Mrs. Lynn, I would see my baby for the first time through an ultrasound. I felt so special because she was encouraging me to give life, something that is unforgettable.
Mrs. Lynn and Mrs. Angela helped me the best way they could. They brought me to a wonderful place called Lifehouse. There, my baby and I are going to be taken care of. It is a place that pregnant girls and young mothers can live until they are on their own. Everyone there pitches in to cook, clean and take care of the chores. We are like family. We have movie night, and game night. We also have bible study every Wednesday. On the weekend I can go to my own home, or I can have visitors if there is no activity. I’ve only there a few days, but I’ve already received help from the people who work at the Lifehouse. They already have me attending school and looking forward to my future as a mother. Hopefully, there are more blessings on the horizon.
This is my story. I hope you understand and believe that God is good and he never leaves you alone. He is always with you and when you need his help he will always find the best way to fix your problem. I learned that it if you ask for God’s help, he will help no matter what your situation may be.
