19 Feb Unplanned children come for a reason
I lived a simple life. I was the mother of two adolescents. The news that another baby was on the way was unexpected. I immediately told the news to my partner and realized that the baby was only my concern. There were a lot of thoughts in my head. It seemed that my little baby was not needed by anyone. What caused me the most fear and anxiety was thinking about how I would raise three children on my own. I cried a lot. And then I discovered the Crisis Pregnancy Center. I received all kinds of assistance there, and above all, moral support. I realized that I could handle everything, and I was no longer afraid of people’s reactions, or of rumors. When my friends found out they supported me, and later on – my family did (they found out later).
For all women in a similar situation, I urge you not to give in to fear or to the negative thoughts that come to you at first. Don’t rush into a decision that at the time might seem like the easiest way out. Unplanned children come for a reason, and we don’t always understand that right away. I already know why my daughter was born. I can’t imagine life without her!
