Can You Help Mary Who Is In Crisis Due to an Unplanned Pregnancy?

babyIt’s 2 a.m. and Mary just finished warming a bottle for her 14 month old daughter who is crying in her crib. Working all day and taking care of her 7 year old son and the baby all evening, Mary is now falling asleep on her feet but sits down to feed her baby, all the time worrying that she may be pregnant again. Her abusive husband has finally moved out but now she worries how she is going to provide her children everything they need, especially if another little one is on the way. She wonders, “What am I to do? Who can I turn to? Who can help me?”

We all have been in situations like this when we know what the right thing to do is yet we don’t know how to make it happen. This is the dilemma that many of our Moms-to-Be face. They are looking for someone to help them so that they can provide the quality of life their family deserves but can’t afford. They want to do the right thing but they also know they need to be able to take care of the children they already have. So they come to Emmanuel House International hoping for a real solution to their very real dilemma.
