When I found out I was pregnant, I was 34 years old. I was just splitting from my husband who was in and out of court. I had moved in with my mom and my fourteen year old son.
I was not in the best place.
When I found out I was pregnant, I felt like I had been hit with a ton of bricks. I was overwhelmed and a little angry. I came to Care Net because my doctor had recommended them when I told him I wanted to have an abortion.
When I came to Care Net, they were welcoming, understanding, with a warm and comfortable atmosphere. It was nothing like I was expecting.
Things have changed since that first day I came to Care Net. My husband and I are currently in the process of working things out under the same roof. I am having the baby now…where before I thought I was 100% sure that this was not something to even consider.
I am also not so afraid of sitting down with a complete stranger and asking for help.
Because of your support, Jennifer also participated in free parenting and life skills classes. Jennifer delivered her baby a few months ago. Your prayers for this mother and her infant are valuable.
