Othello turned one Thursday and is here today thanks to the support of all of the wonderful donors!⁣ ⁣

When we met his mother, Stephanie, she had two kids and was expecting her third child. Upon facing an unplanned pregnancy she was met with a lack of support from those around her, received pressure to get an abortion and overall felt like a lot of the people in her life didn’t want her to have the baby. ⁣ ⁣

In the midst of trying to find life-affirming resources and people who wouldn’t pressure her into abortion, she reached out to us via social media where she expressed her concerns about the pregnancy. Although she had a decent job, she explained she was barely making ends meet providing for her children and if she carried to term she would be over her occupancy limits in her apartments and have to move.⁣ ⁣ However, with the love and support of our team and donors she realized she DID have support from people all around the world! ⁣ ⁣

Thank you for saving his life and helping change this mama’s life! ⁣ ⁣

We also want to give a special shoutout to Vin and Sori for helping spread the word about her story to their followers. Their partnership meant the world to both her and us! ⁣ ⁣

This was her testimonial she sent: ⁣

“HDI helped me prepare for a new, unexpected baby in a way I wouldn’t have been able to if I hadn’t reached out to them. I didn’t have the means to obtain the stuff needed for a new baby and they helped me tremendously. ⁣ ⁣ I was treated with absolute kindness and they went above and beyond to fundraise for my baby. The people who support HDI are the absolute kindest people. Gifts for my baby started pouring in, along with small notes of encouragement. Before my 30th week I had everything I needed for my baby.⁣ ⁣ It was a huge relief and through HDI and their supporters I had a huge weight taken off my shoulders and was able to rest easy knowing my baby had everything he needed. This outpouring kindness is something I will never ever forget!”⁣ ⁣
