I was scared, alone and saw no way out of this mess. Then I found Birthright. I wasn’t alone anymore. They walked with me and held my hand. They gave me hope that things would get better. Thank God for Birthright.
I am 28 years old, happily married with my own child. Each day I realize that my very existence and destiny once depended on the decisions of a frightened teenager. I’m so proud of my mom for having me.
My son would not be alive today if it wasn’t for Birthright. I didn’t have to sacrifice my education or career to have him either. Birthright helped me through the initial crisis and continued to help until I was on my feet again. The volunteers of Birthright treated me like I was family.
I thought I was completely alone in the world – and then I called Birthright. The hope you gave me that night, and in the coming months, turned my crisis into joy.
I was ashamed when I called Birthright. My daughter had run off and left her baby with me. I didn’t know what to do and I’ve never had to ask for help from anyone. You never treated me bad. You never judged me. I’m so glad I called.
I didn’t want to get an abortion but I felt I had no other choice. Birthright offered me the support and resources I needed to have my baby.
Thanks for always being just a phone call away. You’re the only one who seems to mean it when you say you’ll help.
When my parents found out I was pregnant, they threw me out on the street. Birthright was there to pick me up and help me find a place to stay and materials to have my baby.
Seventeen years ago I was in a crisis pregnancy and there were caring people at Birthright to help me get through it. Now I feel God calling me back to Birthright to pay it forward and help others.
I just want to say thank you so much for caring. I praise God to have Birthright in my life. Thank you for all the gifts and for coming to my house when my son was sick.
