Women’s health services looked different in the early 80s when we started the adoption agency. Unexpected pregnancies carried more stigma, but when we set up an office out of our home for single women to come get a free pregnancy test and decision-making counseling, my toddler running around had no preconceived idea about these ladies and why they were there.
Our goal has always been to assist women who wanted to make a carefully thought-out decision for their future and the best for their baby. Choosing life is not easy, regardless of what next decisions a mom makes for her health, support system, and baby’s well-being. Community education is a priority for CFLS and we want women to know they have support and a community who understands what the adoption process looks like today, not 30 years ago. Making an adoption plan is not “giving away” a child, and the more we can encourage positive language the more babies we can save. My little toddler impacted many hurting women in our home just by sitting by them and they could see hope and grace through a child’s eyes. Giving Hearts Day is YOUR day to have a bigger impact with your online donation. I challenge YOU to change the life of a child and expectant parents. Will you #GoMatchyMatchy with me?
Friends of CFLS,
This Sunday we celebrate the sanctity of human life. For many years, this special Sunday has honored the right to life that was altered by the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. At Christian Family Life Services, we believe that all life is precious & valued from conception to natural death. We celebrate with women who choose life for their child. Our ministry feels called to provide education on abortion, parenting, and adoption as well as walk with birth parents through decision counseling and creating an adoption plan. When you partner with us, you invest in unborn human life. YOU inspire birth moms to consider the gift of life for their child.
