Oh My Goodness! There’s a Baby in There!

Lindsey* had an abortion a few years ago. Because of the negative experience she had at Planned Parenthood, Lindsey did not want to have another abortion, but when she found out she might be pregnant again she did not know where else to go. Lindsey told her boyfriend she thought she was pregnant. Her boyfriend didn’t believe that he was the father, and left her. Without his support, Lindsey felt alone. She asked her coworker to call Planned Parenthood for her to see what assistance they offered. Instead of offering a safe place for Lindsey to discuss her pregnancy options, and find help if she wanted to carry her child, the person on the line only tried to schedule an appointment for an abortion. Lindsey needed to find someone who gave more options, so she and her coworker began looking for another place that could help. Her coworker found our phone number online and gave the information to Lindsey. Lindsey booked an appointment with us and came in for a pregnancy test. She listened attentively to the gospel as it was shared with her and was interested in all of the services offered at the Center for Pregnancy. Lindsey left the Center for Pregnancy, feeling like she was not alone and that she could be a mom.

A month later we were able to schedule an ultrasound for her with one of our volunteer nurses. When Lindsey walked back for her ultrasound, she was giddy with excitement, saying, “I’ve been looking forward to this for so long!” As the nurse moved the transducer across Lindsey’s pregnant belly, she was able to capture several beautiful images of the 10-week-old baby. As she watched the ultrasound, Lindsey exclaimed, “Oh my goodness! There’s a baby in there!” She listened carefully as the nurse explained her baby’s development.

When her ultrasound was finished, Lindsey left the Center grinning from ear to ear. Before leaving, Lindsey thanked us and told us how happy she was to be able to see her little one.

Each one of you are a part of Lindsey’s story. Because of your prayers and support, we were blessed to be here when Lindsey needed us. We are grateful to be able to share Christ’s love to her as she moves forward in her journey as a mother.

What Your Donation to the Center for Pregnancy Looks Like to Our Clients

We are incredibly grateful for each one of you, and how your support allows us to minister to our community. We want you to know how your monthly donation looks to the clients that it helps. Every donation is important, and every amount donated provides for a different facet of the ministry.

$20: Covers the cost of the gift bag that a client receives on her first visit to the Center for Pregnancy. The gift bags are a tangible reminder to our clients that they are not alone on this journey. The bag is filled with literature about pregnancy and fetal development, a Bible, and small gift items to let the ladies know they are loved.

$75: Covers the cost of a layette that our client earns after her 10th class. A layette is a baby bathtub filled with new baby gifts, such as blankets, clothes, and infant hygiene items. When moms earn a layette, not only are they excited about receiving much needed items to prepare for a new baby, but she is also empowered with the knowledge she gained from the parenting classes.

$180: Covers the monthly cost of the streaming service we use at the Center that allows us to offer online classes to our moms. During the pandemic, the online streaming service, BrightCourse, made it possible for us to continue the parenting classes which help to educate moms and dads and allow them to earn essential supplies they need for their babies. With BrightCourse, parenting class videos are sent directly to a client’s phone or computer, allowing them to learn from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
