The options were there for me. I could keep my baby, abort my baby, or allow him to be adopted. I knew in my heart that I could not kill my gift from God. I don't think that I could bear to give my child up either. Therefore, I kept my son. Loved him. Raised him. Cared for him. I knew he was a gift.
As days went by and my children got older, I saw God's work in them and in me. As I taught my children lessons in life, they taught me also. They taught me that my heart can be filled with love. Unconditional love for my children is something that I had from the moment I knew they were inside me. If my sinful heart could love my children this much, how much more can my perfect God love me? God's love for all his children is truly beyond my comprehension.
Sleepless nights, diaper changes, and doctor visits consumed my life and although it was hard, it was worth it. They are growing to be Christ centered young adults who truly try to love others as Christ has loved them. I am very proud of the choices that they are making and so happy to have them in my life.
Here at New Beginnings, our mothers also saw their children as a gift and are experiencing the challenges and blessings that come with being a mother. With knowledge, experience, God's Word, and a helping hand, they will succeed in meeting their goals and be able to make it on their own.
It is an uphill struggle every day like any mother learning how to take care of their first child. Some of them grew up in horrible situations, so learning how to take care of a new life, learning to cope with their old life, and learning a new life of structure and love makes it even more difficult. New Beginnings is there to help them, teach them, and guide them as they navigate their own new beginning.
As our Lord and Savior taught us, we are here to help those in need. It is because of our generous donors and volunteers that we are able to share the gospel with them, guide them in different areas of life, and give them a safe, Christian home.
What a blessing to be able to help single mothers take care of their little Blessings from God!!
