She Chose Life, but She's Alone

This young lady changed everything for me. I remember everything about the first time we met. I was waiting to meet her at a bus station so I could accompany her to her new home – the maternity home where I was serving. I didn’t know anything about her, just her name. The bus arrived and she stepped off. At first glance, everything about her seemed to say, “tread carefully”, but her eyes told a different story. She was afraid. She was alone. She had nowhere else to turn, and I was her only hope. The moment my eyes connected with her I instantly felt God’s love pass through me and I told her, “You’re safe now.”


This young woman had chosen life! But she was completely alone. Now what? The next few months are crucial for the development of the baby and the health of this young lady, not only physically, but mentally and spiritually. Because of my support and the love she received at the maternity home, this woman’s story radically changed and she began to thrive as a person and a parent. She even accepted Jesus as her Savior! But without someone to advocate for her and walk with her, this woman’s story could have ended very differently. This is where my calling as a Delivery Advocate began.


At Caring Solutions, we see this same situation. Mothers choose life, but they have no one to walk with them through pregnancy, labor, and post-partum. They don’t even have a person to hold their hand while they bring a baby into the world.


I am stepping into a new role that will change this.


As a Delivery Advocate, I will walk alongside our young mothers and educate them about childbirth. As a childbirth educator, I equip mothers to enter labor with confidence and without fear. I advise, inform, and offer emotional and physical comfort to a mother before, during, and after the birth of her child. For those that come to us alone and pregnant, we can now tell her that she does not have to be at the hospital by herself as she welcomes her precious baby. She will feel safe and loved.


I will also have an opportunity to advocate for those who are alone when they enter the doors of Caring Solutions. I will find joy in praying over new mothers and their babies as I walk with them through their pregnancy journey and watch their babies be delivered. Some will choose life because they will not be alone!


As we celebrate the Sanctity of Human Life this month of January, I’m reminded of these verses:


"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well" (Psalm 139:13-14).


It is beautiful to ponder the growth of an unborn baby, the miracle of life, that speaks about the greatness of our Lord. God should be glorified as we welcome every baby into this world - one of His greatest miracles. As I begin to serve as a Delivery Advocate, I can only picture how our Heavenly Father never leaves our side during our darkest moments. We are not left alone.


As we start 2024, I pray that more women will choose life, knowing that we are with them every step of the way and our Lord will never leave them nor forsake them. May they come to know Him as their personal Savior, and may we be His light when their world seems so dark. Pray for us as we guide, prepare and support each woman that comes through our doors.


Grateful to serve,
