For the ten years that I’d lived in Leesburg I’d never heard of Pregnancy Resource Center, yet I ended up on their couch.
Those strangers welcomed me into their hearts and soon became trusted counselors and godly mentors. I received love and support. I was counseled in everything baby, encouraged in school, and received diapers, wipes, and clothes to prepare for my baby’s arrival.
But more importantly than any of that, I was reminded of God’s incredible love.
In a world full of judgment, I was afraid of the backlash that a young, un-wed, 20 year old mother-to-be would receive.
Instead, the women of the Pregnancy Resource Center reminded me what it means to be a follower of Christ. I will forever be thankful for the women of the Pregnancy Resource Center who opened their hearts to me, and all of the people who made selfless donations to help support me when a full time job at a doctor’s office wasn’t enough to provide for all the things that my child needed. Today, my daughter is a healthy, active, and beautiful little fireball.
