Warmed and Teary Eyed

I must publicly thank all of you that responded to my request for help, referrals, etc. for an expectant mother. The responses I have gotten have literally moved me to tears. Phone calls from people I know and love (thank you my Oregonian friend, please thank your Mama in LA for me as well), emails from readers I have never heard from before, and still more notes from those I have.

I have two leads but I welcome more. I apologize for the cryptic nature of my note.  I am trying to protect the privacy of the mother.  While she has given me permission to ask my resources, I still feel very protective of her.  Only mothers who have been in this situation can understand where I come from. She is raw and doubting herself and hurt and scared and more.  I don’t want to add to that in any way. I want to assure her she has options and that it is her right to research all of them and pick the one that is right for her.  I am hoping to help her find a resource that will give her unbiased information on her options. Its okay if it is a faith based organization – provided the focus is on equipping her with the info she needs to make a decision – not enforce some sort of gods plan hooha. Being cryptic again, I know, but please trust me, I have to be.

For those that asked (and need to know in order to provide more detailed information), I can offer that the mother is in the Fort Polk, LA area. She has a car and can travel to a location on her own. She also has a nominal income. I don’t feel comfortable offering more than that. Her story, her situation is complicated (aren’t they all?).

But seriously, ladies and gents, you all are amazing and wonderful and I cannot adequately express how much I appreciate your responding to my call. Love you all.

 

2 Thoughts.

  1. I am always here for you and yours, Suz. Sometimes I need to be poked and prodded to get out of my self-absorbed little world, but you know this “cause” is near and dear to my heart. As I am able to hug my nearly adopted child as he nears his 12th birthday, and life has changed so much more than I could ever have imagined, I am so grateful for the family and resources to parent him. Life could have been so, so, so different. Every expectant mother should have all the options laid out before them, and the freedom to choose what is right for them and their child. Ahem. Let me step off the soap box, now. Sending love and prayers to you and the precious expectant mother. May she have the faith to believe in herself and the courage to make the choices that are right for her.

  2. By the way, your tracker will show Beaverton, Oregon because I am at my parents house. Have wheels, will travel. 🙂
