Finding out I was pregnant and going to be a mother was very scary. I never thought I would be completely alone when this would happen. It was very difficult for me because nobody was helping me, not even my friends. I had come to be a sad and depressed person.
My situation got worse when I became very ill. I went to the hospital and they told me I had issues with my kidney. I was 4 months pregnant and the doctors did my first ultrasound. They told me that I had zero amniotic fluid, that my baby would not survive and I threatened me with abortion. I was hospitalized in hopes that my situation would improve and it did.
When I left the hospital, I was faced with so much uncertainty as I had no money and no place to stay. For the next month, I snuck in and out of my college dorm until God used the most unlikely person to change my situation for the good. Through her help, I meet Sue & Miha. They took me into their home. They did everything they could to get me in good health for my baby’s sake. Miha immediately started preparing me for my baby’s arrival.
Now my baby girl is 4 months old and they take care of both of us. They help me and the other girls with activities to prepare us for life on our own. They are always available with advice and Godly counsel to help us become stable.
A year ago the agony, sadness, and depression was so overwhelming, I was not happy at the idea of being a mom at that time. But now, there is joy in my life and I smile often. God made sure I didn’t have to be alone. My life has meaning…I’m a mom.
