Every client is unique. Exactly the way God made her. Her experiences, thoughts, feelings…they’re all unique to her. Our job, is to find the common thread between us and her. What is that one thing that connects us as we work to build trust? That one thing is often the most simple, we’re both human. The world around us is spinning but in these centers, in these rooms, we find peace. We find commonality. We find understanding. We both have had seasons of uncertainty. Of fear. Of panic. Yes, we’re both human. And we’re so thankful for that reminder. That at any given moment in our lives, we could be sitting where she is. In fact, some of us have. We sit in gratitude and thankfulness that we’re not there anymore. And thankful that the Lord has allowed us to partner in this work.
As we as an organization walk through a season that is new territory for all of us, we can’t help but feel the love of the Lord around us. The work we get to do each day, for these women, it’s special. Important. Holy. They let us into those secret places. And we honor their trust with our commitment to supporting them through it all.
So today, and everyday we remain thankful that they let us in. That they allow us to walk with them. That they invite us in to a small portion of their lives. And we are thankful.
Thankful for the woman who has struggled through infertility for years, only to find herself pregnant in a time of destitution for her family. We are thankful she has made repeated visits to us and allowed us to be a part of this time.
Thankful for the families that trust in us for their education as they work to learn how to build a healthy family.
Thankful for the women who come back to us after choosing abortion “just to talk”.
Thankful for every client that has the bravery to speak with our connections team, often in the middle of the night.
Thankful for all of you who continue to lift us up in prayer. For all of you who support us in all the ways that you do. In this time of uncertainty, we are so so thankful.
