In January, we observe Sanctity of Human Life by sharing ways that we can protect the unborn lives, infant lives and all human life.
At TBHC, we have started a new program that promotes the sanctity of life by bringing hope and life to young teen mothers and their infants. We will provide housing, resources and trainings to expectant or parenting teens in foster care as well as providing resources and trainings for teen parents in our community.
We want this program to bring a hopeful future to young parents and their babies that God promises to all of us in Jeremiah 29:11. TBHC cannot do that without the generosity from our donors and supporters like you! You can hear more about our Teen Pregnancy Care program on our podcast here!
Let this letter show you the difference that a little love, grace and support can make:
I’m so lucky to have had you as my foster mom! You gave me a chance when everyone else had given up on me. You saw the person I could become, not the mistakes I had made previously as a result of my situation. You were my safe space.
You gave me prenatal information before my baby was born and continued connecting me to resources afterwards. You gave me the tools I needed to be the parent I never had.
Not only did you help me become the parent I always wanted to be, you helped me to become a better person too. You allowed me to have fun with other young parents so that I knew I wasn’t alone and that my personal life wasn’t over.
I know that it wasn’t an easy road Grace, but you stuck with me and believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself! You treated me like family because you’ve been there… you knew what I needed! Thank you!!
You made sure I graduated so that I could give my daughter a future. You showed me how to take care of her instead of doing it for me. You’ll never know how much it meant to me to have you there in my toughest moments, cheering me on.
The things I’ve learned from you will be with me forever. And someday, I hope to be able to be “Grace” to another young girl.
