“When I used to picture my life, I never thought I would have a baby as a teen. After I discovered I was pregnant, everyone told me I should go to Loving Arms Crisis Pregnancy Center and take classes. So, I called and made an appointment.
From the first moment I got there, I felt very comfortable. Everyone was so nice. Usually when you have a baby at a young age everyone judges you, but that wasn’t the case. They were very understanding and supported my decision to keep my baby.
They have so many resources. Each week, I do a different class. They have a program where you can earn Mommy Dollars, and a Baby Boutique where you can spend them. I used my Mommy Dollars to buy my baby clothes, diapers, formula, etc. They also have Bible studies.
Loving Arms has helped make my faith so much stronger. They have shown me how to be a good mother. I know I can always count on them. They are a wonderful organization and I would recommend them to anyone.”
“Three months before my high school graduation, I found out I was expecting. I had no idea what I was going to do; fortunately, I had the support of my baby-to-be’s father. We had heard about Loving Arms through several different people and that it was a Christian-based organization that would provide us the help and support that we would need.
On our first visit, we were nervous and didn’t know what to expect; but, after a few minutes, we began to relax. We took classes once a week and learned so much about our son as he was developing.
After I graduated, we got married and began to start our life together. Loving Arms helped us out by providing classes on everything from budgeting money to general housekeeping.
When it came time to have our baby, we felt like we were well prepared. By the time we brought him home, we already had almost everything we needed because Loving Arms helped us stock up on diapers and other baby items prior to his birth.
As our new baby grows, we continue to seek support from Loving Arms. It feels so good to have someone to talk to and help us through our rocky start.
Loving Arms has played an important part in our spiritual lives as well, by providing us Bible studies. It has given us a great opportunity to get to know God and His Word better and to discuss our faith with each other.
We are so thankful for the ongoing support of Loving Arms and what they provide us and others in similar situations.”
