Mother’s day is almost here! This will be a first, for some of the mother’s who come to Carried To Full Term from unspeakable challenges and yet, they remain hopeful. They desire a better future for themselves and their babies. A large percentage of our mothers have little to no knowledge of parenting. Several were abandoned at an early age and yet, they’ve chosen life and they each, have a strong desire to parent.
They don’t want to parent for the sake of parenting, they have a desire to be great at it. It’s an awe-inspiring experience to witness their tenacity and commitment to motherhood.
Six weeks ago, one of our mothers gave birth to a beautiful little girl. Her baby girl was born with some health complications that have kept her in the NICU since birth. Mom has been in the hospital since delivery patiently awaiting a clean bill for her daughter. Mom knows the doctors are doing all they can to get her baby to better health. However, there are days when she longs to take her daughter home where she can relax, bond, and plan for their futures together.
Carried To Full Term, is a home, to all our families. After a mother is admitted, we immediately partner with her, to teach her, mentor her, and to love and affirm her. Recently, one of our babies celebrated her first birthday. Carried To Full Term is the only home she has ever known. She is loved and she knows it! She loves her mom dearly. She also loves all the other people in her life whom she probably views as family. Because of you, her first year of life has been filled with love, safety, and stability.
We have been able to assist our moms in exploring new paths as a result of the hard work of our incredible staff, committed volunteers and generous partners. One that is filled with hope, love and a brighter future. We honor you for actively supporting our mission and the families who call Carried To Full Term home.

As excited as many of us are about Mother’s Day, we are aware that it is a difficult reminder to many families of an unmet desire. To our friends and families who each year are reminded of not being able to celebrate motherhood/parenthood, we stand with you. We pray for you and we love you!
