The scene in our clinic lobby was so precious – a young mother had come with her newborn to pick up the promised tote filled with baby supplies. She started crying as she went through the overflowing bag of brand-new items for her baby girl.
She gently held up a handmade crocheted blanket and shared that her grandma, who had recently died, always made each grandbaby their own special blanket. She was overwhelmed to think that volunteers in our community would knit, crochet, or quilt special baby blankets to be given by LifeChoices to newborn families. Oftentimes tangible acts of kindness such as donated diapers, clothing, or hand-made blankets provide our clients with a hopeful reminder that they are surrounded by a community of people willing to walk alongside them in this new journey of parenthood.
Baby Lauren* is a miracle – her mother received essential healthcare services at our medical clinic, as well as encouragement, care, and material resources after Lauren was born. And Lauren is just one of many miracle babies gifted to our world this year because of the services and support offered by LifeChoices to young parents in unexpected pregnancy situations.
Thank you for your gifts and donations! Because of you, our clients experience many precious miracle-moments before AND after their baby arrives!
