We celebrated the March For Life weekend with many other service providers who are committed to work with families who have made the decision to parent their children. Knowing that the work is hard, many mothers who lack education to secure a well paying job, finances for childcare costs and transportation to get around choose to care for their families. Many mothers who made this choice weren’t willing participants in their pregnancies but yet they’ve chosen to parent.
We heard and we’ve seen this example on numerous occasions. Throughout the March For Life activities we networked with organization who have agreed to support these mothers in various ways. We provide long term housing. Other organizations help with transportation, financial and educational assistance. We, who are strangers are united in our mission to help those who are suffering in our communities. The March for Life reminded us, that together we can help change to course of life for families experiencing various crisis.
Our weekend concluded by attending a talk given by Abby Johnson, an activist and former abortion provider. Abby reminded us of importance of working together to protect the most vulnerable, the baby in the womb. The task is big, but we were reminded that two strands are stronger than one, together we can make a difference.
