“I came to Care Net for a quick, free pregnancy test,” Ashley recalls. “The abortion clinics I called required money upfront, and I didn’t have any.”

An appointment at Care Net changed several lives that day. “The staff were wonderful, caring, even loving. I listened politely, took their literature, even saw the ultrasound, but I left knowing what I would do next. Abortion was still my plan.”

But God had other plans for Ashley and her unborn son, Bryce. “I had an abortion when I was a teen,” she recalls, “and I swore I’d never do that again. But here I was.” She learned that Care Net offers options counseling, parenting resources, community referrals . . . even free post-abortion support for mothers who chose that path.

For weeks after that visit to Care Net, Ashley wrestled with her decision.  “They’d call, then I’d call. I finally came back to talk, and that’s the day I accepted Christ into my heart. And soon after I decided to keep my baby!”

Having a baby can be a beautiful experience. But for a woman facing an unexpected pregnancy, panic can overwhelm any joy — especially if she’s young, single, and afraid, like Ashley. 

With your help, vulnerable mothers will have hope this season. Your gift welcomes them to Care Net Peninsula, where they find comfort and resources to become a confident, loving, and happy mother.
