A baby was not what “Amy” had in mind for her life at age 20. She was experiencing symptoms of early pregnancy and had already done several home pregnancy tests. Not wanting to face the reality of her pregnancy, Amy came to Choices PRC hoping for a different test result.
An ultrasound confirmed the pregnancy and turned Amy’s heart. The image on the screen was her child, not her problem. There were still concerns to be faced as she worried about the where the relationship with her boyfriend would go and how her parents would react. But she knew that the life of that tiny human being she saw that day was more important than any of her fears.
Amy met with a client advocate throughout her pregnancy. “It was so great to have someone spend time just focusing on helping me”, Amy said. “I loved that we always prayed that my baby’s father would want to be part of our lives.”
When it came time for the childbirth classes offered by Choices volunteers, Amy was thrilled that her boyfriend attended with her so they could welcome their daughter together. The life of their child led to their marriage and the beginning of a new family!
