My boyfriend and I had just ended our relationship, and I moved out on my own. One week later I found out I was pregnant with my now ex-boyfriend’s child. I was alone and couldn’t comprehend the situation that I was in. I did not want anything attaching me to this child’s father; so I felt that abortion was my only option.

I was at my home alone one night and knew I had to make a plan. I got on my computer and looked up what one would do in a crisis pregnancy in Memphis, and I stumble upon Life Choices’ website. I saw a phone number for a Helpline and immediately called. The lady on the other end of the phone was kind and caring. She made me an appointment for the next day.

I went to Life Choices the next day with my mind still set on abortion. I met with a client advocate who was also caring and kind. I had an ultrasound. When I saw the baby on the ultrasound I immediately fell in love. I knew then that I would do anything to provide for and take care of that baby. Now, my son is 5 years old. He is a beautiful kindergartner who thrives in school and tells me he loves me every day. I put myself through nursing school and am now married and working full time. Looking back, I could have never known how powerful and truly life-changing that day at Life Choices would be for me. I am forever grateful to the staff and to this organization.
