I first realized I was pregnant when I noticed physical changes in my body. The first person I told was the baby’s father, my husband now, but we were only boyfriend/girlfriend back then. My biggest concerns were financial. I was already struggling, and I had to work part-time, while going to school part-time so I was really worried I would not be able to afford raising a child.

My professors at school and online search results both pointed us in the direction of PSC. The first meeting with PSC was terrible. It was not because of PSC, but because I was a mess emotionally and could not listen to anything I was told. I only thought, “I’m doomed.” After I had my baby, I kept in touch with PSC and even received counseling from them. It was a great help and helped me to slowly recover.

In the end, I had my baby. If I had to choose all over again, I would still choose to have my baby. Even though I did not want to have my baby at first, I decided to after I calmed down and thought about it. I never changed my mind after that.

During my pregnancy, PSC staff would pray for me (this was most important), provide for my practical needs, give me counseling, and helped us with inner healing. Their support and care was never ending.
