You are not alone. Many women have walked the path of an unplanned pregnancy. Here are some real life stories.
“When I was introduced to New Life, I didn’t know what to expect. I had just given birth and was lost. I knew that I couldn’t take care of my baby alone and that I wanted the best for him, even if I wasn’t the one that would give him that. All I knew was I wanted him to be cared for, loved, and I wanted him to have the best of everything. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to give him that. The day after I had given birth I met the New Life staff and they helped me through everything. They made me feel at ease and reassured me that I would be able to have contact with my baby through open adoption. And now after a year I still can’t imagine a better place to turn to when I needed help the most. Not only am I happy about seeing my son grow to be loved and cared for but I also love seeing my new extended family grow as well. I really couldn’t ask for a better happy ending.” — Rainisha
“My experience with New Life was great! I was welcomed with open arms and I was encouraged. I really loved being a part of a community. At the monthly support group, I found safety in knowing I wasn’t alone. New Life really does inspire life.” — Brandy
“I love New Life! There is absolutely nothing that I would have done differently. Everything turned out beautifully. It was the hardest decision that I have ever made, but looking back it was also the best decision that I have ever made. At the time, I thought that I would never be able to recover, but that was definitely not the case. Everyone at New Life was so loving and gracious! I also love the idea of open adoptions, although I was terrified of that idea at first. Overall, New Life and my adoption was an incredibly positive experience. I could not be happier with the experience.” — Monika
