Dear Pro-Life friends: what have you *personally* done to support lower income single mothers?— (((TuttleSinger))) سارا تاتل سينجر שרה טאטל-סינגר (@TuttleSinger) May 15, 2019
Last year alone, we raised a quarter million dollars to support families and centers who take in moms and their babies. We get them prenatal and postnatal care, help them get started on education, jobs, whatever they need.— Emily Zanotti (@emzanotti) May 16, 2019
Besides organizing diaper drives, donating to food banks, and organizing transportation to and from doctors’ appointments and giving emotional and financial assistance, I became personal friends with some of these moms. They have blessed my life.— Gloria Purvis (@gloria_purvis) May 17, 2019
I read their fetal ultrasounds for free.— Grazie P Christie MD (@GChristiemd) May 15, 2019
I donate lots of money to centers that provide material help.
I adopted some good woman’s little baby.
I could go on and on.
We totally rearranged our lives to adopt a sibling group of three living in a Filipino orphanage.— Charlie Camosy (@CCamosy) May 16, 2019
Adopted 1 and took in 3 foster who are now staying permanently. In addition to my 6 natural children.— Jason A. Miller (@Jamzta) May 15, 2019
Spent $40K to adopt a little girl with a chronic liver disease that was left on the doorstep of an orphanage at 2 days old. We were helped with $500K lifesaving organ transplant. We are grateful for the birth mom choosing life. Our daughter is worth it! #donatelife— Chris Ward (@cajuw) May 21, 2019
My mom and I lived with my sister for 22 and 12 years respectively to help raise her five children— ❤️ Jayvie ❤️ (@OneFineJay) May 15, 2019
We supported a single mom for 6 years until she got married. My wife taught her how to drive, we bought her a car, then another when it got wrecked. We helped her pay for school and helped her find jobs. Untold hours of babysitting. We basically adopted a 19-year-old with 2 kids.— Jason Hall (@jhall479) May 17, 2019
We have oil changes twice year for single moms. We serve about 360single moms. We have a food pantry. We provide financial mentoring. We have a Day of R and R where they get pampered with getting their hair and nails done and a massage. We participate with Habitat for Humanity— CurtNeff (@CNeff1) May 17, 2019
I love reading all the responses. I have taken in a single mother and her two children when her power was cut off in winter. When her car was taken we gave her ours. I’ve given to charity off and on for years. Donated clothing and school supplies to underprivileged kids.— GAGirl1967 RIP Doris Day & Tim Conway! (@Tamaraw68415067) May 15, 2019
Our church is heavily involved in a local program for teen moms. It provides a meals, life skills classes, interventions in emergency situations, a mentorship program (the girls are paired with another mom), some help with physical needs (diapers, car seats, etc).— ElleZee (@ElleZee6) May 15, 2019
Donated to crisis pregnancy centers.— Alexi Sargeant (@AlexiSargeant) May 15, 2019
Volunteered with the Sisters of Life (highly recommend: you can be helpful just by holding a baby while mama gets food at the potluck, for instance)
Offered to meet with anyone in a crisis pregnancy to talk about arranging to adopt their baby.
^and you can add:— Leah Libresco (@LeahLibresco) May 15, 2019
Applying for an open adoption, to take care of a child whose mother doesn't think she can raise the baby, and to keep mother and child in each other's lives.
I’ve volunteered at a crisis pregnancy center. We gave out diapers and baby formula and had a “store” with kids clothes that moms could shop in. It was a beautiful place and really helped many women 😊— Lisa🖤 (@LisaAMoyer) May 15, 2019
I volunteer as a babysitter for an organization that helps single moms complete their college degrees.— Meghan Savercool (@meghansav) May 16, 2019
FYI if you were unaware it’s probably because many of us are Christian and... “don’t let your left hand know what your right is doing”
I was a crisis pregnancy counselor. We provided free pregnancy tests and free counseling and supplies during the pregnancy as well as connecting the women with healthcare.— la costurera diabólica (@hdighn) May 15, 2019
I’ve helped a significant number of women get free from their abusive partners.— Neil Schori (@neilschori) May 17, 2019
In one case, I helped her move while he was at work and got her into a new town and a fresh start.
I do prison ministry every week in a jail where most inmates are low income single mothers. I do bible study every week at ,volunteer & financially sponsor a resident at a 9 month Addiction Center where most of the women are low income, single moms (the women come for free).— Kim Reid (@boboreid) May 18, 2019
