Thinking you might be pregnant is the scariest feeling in the world. I felt paralyzed and had nowhere to turn. Then a friend told me about Birthright. I got a free pregnancy test right in their office and was so relieved that it was negative. The volunteer never judged me, she was supportive and kind.
How did you know? How did you know to call just when I needed you? My husband beats on me, my family turns away from me, but you are always there. You are more than Birthright. You are my friend. I love you.
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 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.
Thank you for always being just a phone call away. You’re the only one who seems to mean it when you say you will help.
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 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.
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.
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.
I have never forgotten how Birthright help me through my crisis. Now two years later I am a single mom of a beautiful little girl. I hope you will pass these clothes on to let others know there is always hope.
