Pregnant and addicted: a happy ending

Cradle My Heart Today | Hillary’s story 6-28-17

Hillary was homeless and addicted to heroin when she became pregnant. Listen now:

She told Live Action News she was hopeless, feeling abortion was her only option.

She reached out to a pregnancy center simply to get access to state medical benefits to pay for the abortion.

She told them, ‘I can’t imagine how I’m going to stop using heroin for my baby. I can’t even do it for myself’.”

However, the encouragement she received from the center allowed her to consider keeping her child.

Even after being arrested just a week later and spending 60 days in jail, the counselors and staff stuck with Hillary, allowing her to feel a sense of empowerment, even behind bars.

Months later, with their help, Hillary gave birth to her baby boy Adam, and was finally free from her addiction.

Often an unintended pregnancy unfolds in the midst of adverse life circumstances, and this can cloud the blessing, even making it seem a curse. But with support and faith to see it through, God’s goodness shines.

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
