What drew you to get involved with the Center?
I am passionate about caring for and empowering women of all backgrounds, which is exactly FWPC’s mission. We take a holistic approach with our clients — we not only focus on pregnancy options, but also on education, employment, mentorship, material needs, and more. It is a privilege to walk with these women in what can be a vulnerable and confusing time of their lives.
What has impacted or surprised you most about serving at the Center?
It breaks my heart that there is such a large number of women without support of any kind. Many of our clients feel so overwhelmed by their emotions or their circumstances that they aren’t capable of finding a solution. A listening ear can be the most helpful and powerful resource to clear their mind, get back on their feet, and move forward.
What moment or experience stands out to you?
A client came into FWPC with intentions to get an abortion. After digging a bit deeper, it was obvious that she didn’t want to have an abortion at all, but she felt that it was her only option due to her age, her relationship with the father, and her fear of raising a child alone. I felt the Holy Spirit’s inclination to affirm her and encourage her that she can defy any odds that she faces during this pregnancy. She left her appointment so much lighter, and she chose life!
