Meet Alexa and Matthew

My name is Alexa and my son Matthew James was born in 2016. He’s been a wonderful, easy baby and he makes me want to have more!

My pregnancy didn’t start out that easy. When I found out I was pregnant I was devastated and all I could do was cry. I have three children and they were all going to be in school soon, so I was planning to go back to work. I also thought the baby’s father might not stay around, so the timing couldn’t have been worse.

I had already gone to a family planning clinic. They told me about the different procedures available to terminate and asked if I was ready to schedule it, but I couldn’t make that kind of decision right then.

When I came to the Center everyone was kind, loving and warm. They said they would talk to me afterwards, even if I ended up having an abortion. That was comforting.

The nurse said lots of positive things and gave me the information I needed. When I left after the ultrasound exam, i still wasn’t sure what to do. It definitely helped to see the baby moving. After talking it out and praying a lot, I reached a conclusion a few days later — to have the baby.

What I found at the Center was patience, warmth, love and kindness, which is pretty much what every pregnant woman needs. Even thought it wasn’t the way I would have timed ti, everything has worked out well for me, and I’m glad I have my beautiful baby boy.
