Client Corner: Meet TeAira

"A few months ago, when I found out I was pregnant, I was for sure God gave up on me. I thought He would never forgive me, and this was my punishment for playing with fire. Then one day driving, I passed a reminder from God that I was not alone, the Pregnancy Center. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this place.

As me and my mom started to attend these classes every week, I felt less alone and felt myself beginning to be more prepared. Then starting H.U.G.S. classes was exactly what I needed. I learned that God never leaves us and that if I changed my ways and was truly sorry, that God forgives. I felt myself getting closer to two servants of God, Mrs. Karen and Mrs. Sarah. They showed so much love and never once judged me. They accepted me and my mom and helped me more than words could explain. Without them showing me the way back to God and preparing me for my blessing, I don’t know where I would be today. And to know that there are still true Christians out here gives me the comfort that was lost. Not only am I closer to God, but now I know I am prepared to be the good mother God intended me to be. I’ve shared this program with many other girls and women, and I will most definitely continue to. I recommend any pregnant woman feeling alone or discouraged or that may not know God, to come to this center. It truly is a life changing experience. I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry.—Psalms 40:1”
