My promise you.

This has been resting on my heart for a long time.  My own daughters know this and the young women closest to me.  But it also belongs to all the young women I know: family, friend’s daughters, the clerk at my favorite craft store, the neighbor’s granddaughter.  If you ever find yourself pregnant and are afraid or are considering ending your pregnancy this is my promise:

My promise you.

For every young woman in my life, this is my promise.

If you are ever pregnant and worried, alone or frightened.

I will care for you and for your child: today, tomorrow and forever.

You do not need to be alone.

If you need safe housing, food, transportation or clothing I will help you.

If you need help finding medical care or getting to appointments I will help you.

If you need legal assistance I will help you find it.

If you need to cry I will hold you, if you are scared I will comfort you, if you are overwhelmed I will remind you how strong, capable and brave you can be.

If you need someone to be there when you have your baby I will be there and hold your hand, comfort you or do anything you need.

If you need someone to care for your child for a month, or a year or a life time I will – no questions or judgement.

If you would rather have someone else care for your child I will help you find that person.

I will do anything and everything I can to help you and your baby. If I can not help in any specific way I will do all I can to help you find the help I can not provide.

I will be there for you and for your child because you are both important, because life is beautiful and precious and you are both worthy of love and support.

Where Am I?
