I came to My Fatherís House after my family let me know I would be on my own because I was pregnant. My Fatherís House gave me a place to sleep, a plan to prepare for, and overwhelming acceptance and support for my decision to keep my son. I had no idea how to care for a newborn, let alone how to build a life for him and myself.
My Fatherís House taught me all the basics, and all those not so basics. They showed me compassion in a time when I thought it was not deserved. Without My Fatherís House, I would not be where I am, or who I am today.
My Fatherís House gave me the tools, the courage, even the lectures I needed at a time when my family turned their back. Caleb is five now, brilliant, loving. I am so grateful to have a successful career, shake off my mistakes and maintain the mindset to keep going, no matter how hard it gets.
Why should you help? Because My Fatherís House is there when no one else will be. Their staff goes above and beyond for these young women, who feel they have run out of options...and through patience and encouragement, show them all the ways they can keep going, even when they think they canít. My Fatherís House is such a unique experience, and how they support and love these kids, so selflessly, is unmatched.
Children having children is a losing situation for everyone.
Without help, these kids donít have much of a chance.
