Growing up with a single mom and a large family, Vicky’s heart was hardened to the idea of being a mother herself. Hoping to avoid the responsibility of a child, the father of the baby encouraged her to abort. Scared and alone, Vicky believed abortion was her only option.
Shortly after coming in for a pregnancy test, Vicky came back for a sonogram. The moment she saw her baby on the screen everything changed; abortion was no longer an option for her.. Vicky realized that despite never wanting to be a single mother, she wouldn’t be able to cope with the grief and regret of having an abortion.
At Embrace, Vicky found the resources and support she needed to choose life for her baby. While parenting alone is difficult, Vicky is forever thankful to Embrace for showing her another way. After completing classes at Embrace, Vicky earned material support that helped ease the financial burden and in turn allowed her to delight in the joy that baby Amelia has brought to her life.
All of this is thanks to you! You can make a difference by considering an end of year gift to Embrace to help more women like Vicky choose life in 2024!
