“It wasn’t easy and very painful. The baby had ten fingers and ten toes.” Melissa (not the client’s real name) sat and cried in the client room for 2 hours, sharing her recent abortion story with her Client Advocate. Melissa had an at-home abortion in her bathroom, and the recent aftermath created deep shock waves in her life. The baby’s father, who had thought, “I’ll support you in whatever you decide,” didn’t know how to handle his grief and began drinking heavier and lashing out. Their abortion decision had stretched their relationship to its breaking point. Grief flooded Melissa’s life, and she was emotionally exhausted.
It had been nearly two months since the at-home abortion, yet Melissa wasn’t feeling quite “right.” She took another home pregnancy test, and to her dismay and disbelief, it was positive. It was this positive test that brought Melissa to Pregnancy Resources. Just hours after her frantic call, she was able to receive compassionate truth with gentle leading.
In Melissa’s moment of vulnerability, YOU cared for her.
While you weren’t in the room, you were able to meet her needs.
While you didn’t see Melissa’s face, you helped her lean toward healing and wholeness. Your mindful financial support and prayers helped provide for her unique needs on the very day she walked through the doors of Pregnancy Resources.
You said yes by embracing her need to be listened to, offering her a place of comfort, and embracing her when she was vulnerable. You offered help to heal some of the hurt she had experienced.
Tomorrow there will be many more “Melissa’s” in crisis and in need of Mindful CARE. Your ongoing financial support keeps the door to hope and healing open. You are making sure CARE is ready and available when it’s needed most. Thank you!
