Pregnancy Support Services Helps a Family With Special Needs

We find women and families in many different kinds of situations needing our help. “Candice” and her family came to the United States to escape religious persecution in Egypt. Sadly, she knew several people who died in a recent bus bombing which targeted Christians in her home country. Candice and her husband are grateful to be in America where they can safely worship the Lord and attend church.

Since coming to this country, they have had two children with special needs. It has been challenging for Candice to find early childhood services and therapy for her children. She is very thankful for her pregnancy counselor, Faith, who has come alongside her family during her pregnancy and has provided her with education, support, encouragement, and practical items such as diapers and baby wipes. Faith describes Candice as having a bubbly and gracious personality. She is honest, open, energetic, and hardworking.

Candice relates that she especially appreciates having a pregnancy counselor to talk with about her daily struggles. She readily shares her feelings which has reduced her stress level and increased her sense of hope and confidence. She says she has become a better mom to her children because of her involvement with our Pregnancy Support Services.
