It Was Not A Time Of Celebration
Brittney had a positive pregnancy test.
For thousands of women, a positive pregnancy test is cause for celebration and elation. But for Brittney, the results brought different feelings: Fear. Panic. A sense of being totally overwhelmed.
Brittney is 21 and is already struggling to raise her young son. She cannot afford another child. She has no support network, and she is not sure who the baby’s father is. For many young mothers-to-be, the story ends there. Desperate situations with little support prompt many to consider an abortion because it seems to be the easiest—and only—alternative.
Thankfully, this is not where Brittney’s story ended. Brittany came to the Life Line Pregnancy Center, where we were able to help her write a new chapter in her life.
At the Life Line Pregnancy Center, we provide education and information on alternatives to abortion, including adoption. We have helped hundreds of area women decide to give their unborn baby the gift of life. We offer:
- Confidential, lab-certified pregnancy tests.
- Confidential counseling by trained volunteers.
Educational classes on fetal development and parenting.
She Chose Life
While at Life Line, Brittney had an ultrasound that confirmed she was 15 weeks along in her pregnancy. When she saw her baby, she decided to choose life. She determined that making an adoption plan would be best for her. Life Line is assisting Brittney by setting up an appointment to meet with an adoption specialist. Until she has decided upon the specific route she wants to take, Brittney is in our one-on-one mentoring program.
Brittney’s story is still being written: This week she decided to go to church. Praise God!
