She came in to the office with her mother. Although she was engaged to be married, finding herself pregnant for the first time was very distressing for the nineteen year old. Ebony* had questions about pregnancy, medical care, marriage, family, as well as spiritual matters and some material needs. Because The Next STEPP Center was here to help her find the answers to her questions, she chose life for her baby.
Over the months Ebony became more knowledgeable and confident about her pregnancy. During her time with us she accepted Christ as her personal savior, decided to marry before the birth of her child and learned as much about parenting as possible.
The Center was also able to help her with items she would need for the baby and information on breastfeeding and infant care. Ebony was a faithful participant in our programs and by the grace of God has a beautiful healthy baby girl. She is happily married and looking forward to a great future with her new family.
Your gift allows Next STEPP to continue to support women like Ebony as we promote a community where the God-given worth of all human life is both valued and supported and where new life in Christ is made available! Thank you for giving the gift of life!
