Day 28 of 30 days of Thanks

Brittany walked into our Campus Center for a pregnancy test.  She was feeling unsure and overwhelmed at the possibility of pregnancy.  She was attending college and away from family.   A PDHC volunteer nurse listened to her concerns and provided information on pregnancy options and community resources.  The nurse encouraged her to have an ultrasound before making a decision.  Brittany was interested in the ultrasound and was able to have one at that time.

The nurse was able to date her pregnancy at almost 6 weeks and show Brittany her baby’s heartbeat.  She was still feeling undecided about her plans, but she was excited about having ultrasound pictures and accepted prenatal vitamins.  Brittany came back for a second ultrasound and could see her baby again.  The nurse was able to send ultrasound images through a secure app to Brittany’s  phone.  Brittany was able to view the images repeatedly after she left her second appointment.  The nurse later followed up to provide the physician’s ultrasound reviewing comments.  Brittany said she now plans to continue the pregnancy and has a prenatal care appointment scheduled.

Thank you God for this life decision!  We praise you for the truth and wonder of life displayed through ultrasound!  We thank you for caring volunteers who share your love with those in need.  We pray for this family.  We pray for continued life and well-being for all those we serve.  May these families know the blessing of life and your peace and providence.  We lift them up to you.  Amen

 

Day 27 of 30 days of Thanks

One of our moms has been reading our 30 Days of Thanks and asked if we’d share this beautiful picture she sent us. We are thankful for her and her little boy!

“I’m so thankful for PDHC. They have been there for me. I was taking parenting classes while my husband and I were trying to adopt a little girl. Sadly the birth mom miscarried. I continued the classes and went to a fertility awareness class at PDHC. They helped me track everything and I got pregnant! My son is now nine months old and I’m so blessed that PDHC is still helping me. Thank you!” -Jennifer

Day 26 of 30 days of Thanks

We are thankful for God’s perfect timing. Nicole, our West Center Coordinator, met with a client who had a positive pregnancy test and was completely overwhelmed. She shared with Nicole all the reasons why she couldn’t have a baby and how negatively it would affect the father and their families. She thought abortion was her only option. Then she listened quietly while Nicole shared life options, abortion procedures and risks. Nicole showed her all the community resources available for new parents. The client left PDHC with a heavy heart.

Nicole called the prayer line added this client to the weekly prayer list. A few days later as Nicole and the nurse discussed this client, Nicole felt compelled to follow-up with the client right then. The client answered Nicole’s call as she sat in the waiting room of Planned Parenthood, our country’s largest abortion provider. Nicole told her that she felt God impressing on her to call at that moment and expressed concern for her.  The client thanked Nicole for calling, the words of encouragement and all the information she shared. The client said that she is leaning towards parenting. We continue to pray and follow up with her. We know God is at work.

Praise Him for the way He works and speaks to all of us!

“I don’t have insurance and the father currently lives out of the country so emotionally and financially I’ve been lacking in support. PDHC has been such a positive and encouraging support system so quickly. I’m so thankful for everything they’ve offered and continued to offer to me through this new journey.” – Michelle. Her baby is due March 29, 2019
