If you received our latest Lifeline, then you were introduced to Ashley and Ashton. Ashley came to Life Choices like many of our clients do- alone, scared, and with an appointment for an abortion already scheduled. She went to the abortion clinic and could not go through with terminating her pregnancy, however she was still left with a mountain of struggles before her and facing being a single parent.

During Ashley’s first visit at Life Choices, she had an ultrasound and saw her baby for the first time. This was the confirmation she needed to fight all of the challenges she was facing, and she was happy to fight for her precious son. She agreed to come back for our Bridges and Empowerment meetings led by our Client Services Director, Shamiah. Though her pregnancy was not planned, that did not mean that she could not be the best mom possible! Ashley not only received practical information, help and guidance but also spiritual direction and mentorship at a time when she needed it the most.

Ashley went on to give birth to a beautiful baby boy, Ashton. She loves being his mom! She has a great support system around her and is able to work and attend school.
