When Miss Brittany came on the scene
here at Bethany House we had a few concerns. She tended to be…well,
a little mean spirited, very opinionated, and self-focused. However,
over the past six months, Brittany has blossomed into a perfect
example of how Bethany House can help women and infants discover
a totally new direction in life - a fresh start.
“Growing up, I had a very rocky relationship
with my family. Like many teenagers I had a problem with rebellion
and not knowing where to place my anger. I was in and out of
my mother's home until I buckled down and found my own place
and supported myself. That lasted until I made a quick spiral
down and started drinking and making poor choices, which affected
my work performance. I lost a very good job. Things continued
to get worse. My boyfriend's mom asked me to stay with them rent
free for assistance around the house. Then the other bomb dropped.
I got pregnant. His mom, who was extremely ill with cancer, asked
me to leave if I wouldn't have an abortion. Thank God the local
PRC directed me to Bethany House. I laughed and said, 'There's
no way I'm living in some shelter.' Today, I am so grateful for
Beth allowing me the privilege of living at Bethany House. I've
learned so much. It has changed my life."
Beth opening her arms
to a hard-head like me was a prayer answered. Bethany House's
staff has played a huge roll in my growth. They continue to
teach me so much. I am now a stronger and smarter person. I used
to think getting pregnant was the worst thing that could ever
happen. It turns out that it has been by far the best. God blessed
me with the most beautiful, well-behaved, and flawless baby,
He is the best 'mistake' I've ever made. I would
never take it back. I am head over heels, deeply in love with
this 'new man' in my life. He's my own little angel in disguise.
Thank you Bethany House for your love.”
