Hi, I’m Jenna, a mom of 3 beautiful children and currently pregnant with my 4th child. I am no stranger to Hope Unlimited Family Care Center for I have benefitted from their services throughout my pregnancies. However, this pregnancy started out differently, I had decided to get an abortion. As I was driving to get the abortion, I began listening to the song “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury. At the end of the song, the chorus says, “There’s no shadow You won’t light up, Mountain You won’t climb up, Coming after me. There’s no wall You won’t kick down, Lie You won’t tear down, Coming after me.” At that moment is when I saw the vision of the movie Moana where a giant creature is fighting and coming after its precious rock. I saw God coming after me recklessly to stop me from killing this baby. The conviction I felt was undoubtedly God fighting for this precious baby girl in my womb. The verse Jeremiah 1:5 came to mind, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” I knew in that moment that God had a plan. I felt complete peace as I turned my vehicle around, in tears, listening to God’s conviction over me. I felt held by God as he told me everything was going to be okay because he had a plan for me and all 4 of my children. I am expecting this precious baby girl in October and can’t wait to hold her in my arms.
YOU CAN KEEP NEW BABIES SAFE BY GIVING THEM A SEAT! Since March of this year, Hope Unlimited Family Care Center has given new five-point harness car seats to expecting moms each month. Whenever a pregnant client comes in for a mentoring or prenatal appointment, she can enter her name in a drawing.
The car seats, which protect newborns to children weighing 35 pounds, average about $90. It’s illegal to transport a child without one. In years past, parent who could not afford a car seat could rely on fire departments to hospitals to fill the gap. Those programs no longer exist.
Hope Unlimited Family Care Center saw the need and asked other businesses, groups and individuals to help out. Thanks to our caring community, we will be able to protect more than 18 children before the year is out. However, after December, we will not be able to continue the program without more funds.
If you’d like to know how you can help, call 270.442.1166 or 618.524.5730.
We’ve had so many new arrivals this year… Babies (of course), volunteers and equipment! We’d like to ask you to pass on the blessing to our expectant clients!
