Human Defense Initiative is excited to announce our latest fundraiser for an expecting mother in need!
Jennifer is a single and homeless mother, expecting her second child, a baby girl.
Due to her situation, a lot of people pushed for her to either abort or put the baby up for adoption. However, she informed us she felt, “there was no way I could live with myself if I did so, I tried to have faith that everything will fall into place and here it is happening.”
Earlier this month, Jennifer moved into a maternity home for homeless expecting mothers. They have been fantastic in helping her accumulate the larger items for the baby, but there’s still a few things she needs help with including bottles, a baby carrier, as well as breastfeeding and baby healthcare items, among other things.
Upon finding out she was pregnant, she reached out on Facebook for support and recommendations on resources, and that is when we came into contact with Jennifer. Her story was heartbreaking and her willpower to make a better life for herself and daughter was so inspiring, we knew we had to assist.
She is currently at high risk due to cholestasis of pregnancy and will be induced a month early on Thanksgiving.
The maternity home is going to help her get on her feet after she has the baby and find a job.
Jennifer plans to go back to work after childcare is secured and is determined to get a place of her own for her family.
She also told us that since offering our help earlier this year, our support has been one of the only things that has kept her from feeling like she was “totally sinking.”
Sometimes expecting mothers need a helping hand. Here at Human Defense Initiative, we never want any woman to ever feel pressured into an abortion, and want all mothers to feel confident that they have what they need to love and provide for their babies.
Let’s show Jennifer and her daughter some love and support during this next journey in their lives!
