Pregnancy Centers Genuinely Care About You

By |2018-10-09T20:23:41-04:00June 9th, 2019|Client Stories|

My name is Trina and I am a single mom of a beautiful 8 year old girl and a handsome 4-month-old son. I am 31 years old and currently unemployed. I live with my mom, sister, niece and my kids. When I found out I was pregnant, I had mixed emotions. I was sad because I was a single mom, again, and going to do it all alone. I was happy because I always wanted another child. I was also surprised - doctors had told me I only had a [...]

Have Healthy Baby and Be Good Parents

By |2018-10-09T20:24:14-04:00April 9th, 2019|Client Stories|

I am a 19 year old high school dropout, working two jobs. When my boyfriend and I found out that I was pregnant, we were shocked, scared and excited all at the same time. We were homeless, living in our car, and did not know how we would raise a child. The first thing I did was call my mom because my mom had me at 16, and she stayed at a halfway house until I was born. She told me I needed to find someone who would help us [...]

My name is Kesha. I am 18 years old and just started my second semester of college. I have a beautiful little girl named Anna. This is my story. I was planning to go into the military after graduating from high school. I had excellent grades and had been in JROTC since middle school. I loved it and believed it would save me from the environment I have lived in all my life. My mom was single and told my sister and me that our fathers didn’t even know we [...]

Pregnancy, Get the Facts!

By |2018-10-09T20:24:51-04:00February 9th, 2019|Client Stories|

Being 20 years old, it seems I have still not processed the fact that I am pregnant, again. My son is almost 18 months old, and my boyfriend and I are anxious about him being a sibling. I have been very sick this pregnancy, so it has not been a fun experience and the fact that neither one of us are ready for another child has made this whole situation difficult. I am currently not in school nor am I employed, which makes the situation even worse. We live with [...]

Just Had a Beautiful Baby Girl

By |2018-10-09T20:25:07-04:00January 9th, 2019|Client Stories|

I am 43 years old.  I just had a beautiful baby girl.  It is very likely that my precious baby would not have been born had it not been for the services I received through the Florida Pregnancy Support Services Program.  I came to the pregnancy center when I began to suspect I was pregnant.  I took a pregnancy test and, sure enough, I was pregnant.  I was scared and did not think I could go through with the pregnancy.  My youngest child was 14, and the thought of having [...]

My First Visit to FPSS

By |2018-10-09T20:25:21-04:00November 9th, 2018|Client Stories|

My first visit to the pregnancy center was to take a free pregnancy test and verify my pregnancy, so I could apply for benefits. At that point I had no idea that the center would have other great services to offer and that I would soon become a regular at the women’s center. Some of these great services that have benefited me have been the Earn While You Learn program, the bi-weekly mommy support groups and the new breastfeeding support group. When I first visited the center, I had an [...]

It Was Worth It!

His name is Christopher.  He has sparkling blue eyes and a shy smile that captures not only your attention but your heart as well.  Life is good for Christopher, and he lets you know it with an infectious giggle that fills the room. But things didn't start out this way for Christopher.  His mom came to the pregnancy center suspecting pregnancy after an unfortunate decision one night.  She walked in already in tears, in a state of panic and fear.  A chance meeting with a kind-hearted woman at Publix (who [...]

My Amazing Support System

By |2018-10-09T20:35:41-04:00April 5th, 2018|Client Stories|

At the tender age of 19, one does not fully understand the sentiment of support. It is one of the furthest thoughts from a person’s mind. However, for a young woman dealing with an unplanned pregnancy, the feeling of support can be the most essential if not inspiring thought there is. As I am a young mother myself, I know exactly how the role of support can affect one’s life as well as others. When I learned I was pregnant, I was 19 and did not have the slightest clue [...]

The Story of Lici

By |2018-10-09T20:40:11-04:00February 14th, 2018|Client Stories|

Lici was 13 years old when she came here from Cuba. She started school and her family bought her a computer with internet access. Lici spent long hours on the computer trying to learn English as well as accessing popular sites such as Facebook and My Space. One day Lici met a young man on the internet who said he went to school with her and wanted to get to know her better. Not having much experience she didn't see anything wrong because he was just one of her "schoolmates". [...]
